Course Dessert
Servings 12 slices


Peach Topping

  • ¼ c salted butter
  • ½ c brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 c peach slices


  • 1 ½ c flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ c salted butter
  • ¾ c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ c sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • c milk



  • In the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate, melt the butter.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter and sprinkle the cinnamon over that.
  • Arrange the peach slices around the pie plate and set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg, sour cream and vanilla and mix until well-combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Slowly pour the milk into the batter and mix until just combined.
  • Pour into the pie plate over the peaches and spread to an even layer.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then cover with aluminum foil (you'll want to tent it - don't cover too tightly). If the cake sticks to the foil, don't worry about it....remember, it's an upside down cake! ;)
  • Bake an additional 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, then run a butter knife around the edge of the pie pan and flip over onto a serving platter.
  • Enjoy warm or room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired!
