A dear friend from the South gave me the idea for this peachy cake. I add bourbon and top each slice with vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. —Trista Jefferson, Batavia, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced peeled peaches or frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon, optional
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • BATTER:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 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

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. If desired, in a small bowl, combine peaches and bourbon; toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place 1/4 cup butter in a 12-in. ovenproof skillet; heat in oven 5-7 minutes or until butter is melted. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter. Arrange peach slices over brown sugar.
For batter, in a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 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.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm. Yield: 10 servings.
