Makeover Peach Upside-Down Cake Recipe

Our kitchen crew used a little less sugar, brown sugar and butter, then added buttermilk to replace some of the moisture in this classic dessert remake.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches in juice

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Add to dry ingredients and stir until blended. Spoon over peaches. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
