Peach Upside Down Cake

I love this cake! Juicy peaches and brown sugar line the bottom of a cast iron skillet covered with a light cake batter. Once the cake is done, invert it onto a serving platter so the fruit is on top and the cake is on the bottom. So pretty!

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

  2. Preheat oven to 350º, in a 10″ cast iron skillet, melt 1/4 cup of butter in the oven until it melts, swirl the butter around the sides to prevent sticking. Remove from oven and sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the bottom of the skillet.
