Southern Peach Upside Down Cake

Contributed By: Parker


2 cups sliced peeled fresh or frozen peaches, thawed
2 tablespoons bourbon, optional
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup 2% milk


1. Preheat oven to 350°. If desired, combine peaches and bourbon; let stand 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, place 1/4 cup butter in a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet; heat in oven until butter is melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter. Arrange peach slices over brown sugar.
3. For batter, in a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating after each addition just until combined. Spread batter evenly over peaches.
4. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm.
