Pineapple Peach Upside Down Cake

Here’s the story… (if you want to skip to the recipe, scroll down).

Okay, I wanted to make a cake and the only cake mix I  had was Pineapple Supreme …

… only problem, I didn’t have any pineapples to make a pineapple upside down cake. What I did have, was a can of peaches.

So I thought, okay.. let’s make this work. So I took a box of regular old cake mix and jazzed it up a bit (like I always do) and instead of using pineapple, I used peaches. BAM!  Pineapple Peach Upside Down cake is born.

It’s honestly one of the best cakes I’ve ever made and I’ve made a bunch of them. It’s sweet and sticky and fluffy and totally mouth watering. My favourite part, the corners where the sugar caramelized and makes a crunch outer edge.  UH….it’s fantastic. Oh and it’s easy…

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Pineapple Supreme Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed sugar
  • 1 can of Peach halves

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degree F for metal or glass pans. Grease sides and bottom of pan with oil spray.

Step 2: Blend cake mix, eggs, milk, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds). Then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3: In a medium saucepan melt butter over low heat until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Step 4: Mix brown sugar in with melted butter, pour into cake pan and spread evenly.

Step 5: Slice peach halves into thin slices. Arrange peach slices along the bottom of the cake pan.

Step 6: Pour cake mix evenly over peaches.

Step 7: Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 8: Using oven mitts to handle pan, immediately invert onto a serving tray. Tap tray to make sure all the peaches drop.

Step 9: Serve and enjoy!

*Note: Not all of my peaches dropped perfectly, but I just used a knife to scrape them from the tray and replace them. It still tasted fantastic though.

Hope you enjoy.
