Great recipe! I love this cake. For some reason, when I got about half way through making this recipe when I realized that all of the ingredients that were mentioned in the directions were not listed. Just in case anyone else had this problem, I found the recipe on another site, and the items are: 1 cup buttermilk, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

The topping was sweeter than expected...probably because the peaches were canned in heavy syrup. Will try recipe with fresh or frozen fruit next time. Couldn't find my 9" pan, so used an 8" and baked about 15 minutes longer. It was wonderful served warm with whipped cream.

Very good makeover recipe for peach upside down cake. Tasy and easy to make when using canned peaches.

This was a great cake. Not as pretty as the picture. Don't know why the makeover cake used canned peaches instead of fresh. Used fresh then used peach puree instead of juice from the can. Would definitely make again but would try doubling the peaches on top.

This is really good. I have made it several times. The peaches are a nice change of pace from traditional pineapple upside-down cake.
