Peach Upside Down Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 175˙C

  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.

  3. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, 4 tablespoons of butter and eggs. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula.

  4. Add remaining 4 tbsp of butter to the bottom of a 9 inch cake pan, swirling the pan until the bottom and sides are well coated. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the melted butter. Arrange peach slices on top in a single layer. Scoop the batter evenly over the peaches, smoothing out the top.

  5. Place into oven and bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer in the center comes out clean.

  6. Let cool for 5 - 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the cake and turn upside down onto a serving plate.

  7. Serve immediately.
