INSTRUCTIONS:

Creating the Peach Topping:

1. In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup of unsalted butter over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar, stirring until dissolved and the mixture bubbles.

2. Pour this caramel-like mixture into the bottoms of greased muffin cups or ramekins.

3. Arrange the sliced peaches atop the caramel, creating an even layer.

 

Preparing the Cake Batter:

1. Whisk together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set it aside.

2. In another bowl, cream 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring full incorporation, and stir in the vanilla extract.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with 1/4 cup of milk, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

 

Assembling and Baking:

1. Spoon the cake batter carefully over the peaches in the muffin cups or ramekins, filling each about 2/3 full.

2. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cake comes out clean.

3. Let the mini peach upside-down cakes cool in the muffin cups or ramekins for a few minutes. Then, invert them onto a serving plate so that the peaches are on top.
