Loved this one!
Whiskey Peach Upside-Down Cake is a boozy take on pineapple upside cake. A cake I never eat because I don't like pineapples so I loved this version using fresh peaches. I almost used frozen peaches because peeling peaches is kind of a pain, but I couldn't pass up the beautiful bushel fulls at the farmers' market.
I often omit alcohol from baked recipes but I kept it here using bourbon in both the caramel topping and the cake batter. I loved the slight bite from the booze in the topping but didn't notice it much in the cake. But the cake, let me tell you how much I loved the cake. So freakin' good! Light and airy, it almost melted in your mouth but was sturdy enough to support the crown of peaches coated in caramel. I have spent an embarrassing amount of time this week thinking of other uses for this cake recipe.
I wish I had used more peaches as they shrunk while baking and it would have made for a prettier cake. But this cake ain't about looks and it more than made up for it in flavor. A scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and it was pretty much perfection.
