Baked Sunday Mornings - Whiskey Peach Upside-Down Cake



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.

Please go to Baked Sunday Mornings for the recipe and to see the other bakers beautiful cakes!
