Peach Upside Down Cake Made into Individual Portions

I love cupcakes and I love when you can convert a traditional cake into an individual cupcake, like German Chocolate Cupcakes for instance or Cheesecake Cupcakes People always just love them that much more and serving them up is cleaner and easier. Peach Upside Down Cakes need to find a place on your menu ASAP! They are simply heavenly! Think peach cobbler, meets sweet cornbread, meets upside down cake all made into one decadent cupcake. Pretty epic right?

How to Make Peach Upside Down Cake {Easy Individual Size}

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • 2. Prepare jumbo muffin cups: Spray each well of a 6-cup jumbo muffin pan with cooking spray.

  • 3. Add first brown sugar layer: Divide 4 Tbsp melted butter among wells, adding about 2 tsp to each, then evenly sprinkle 1 tbsp of the brown sugar into each well over butter.


  • 4. Top with peaches: Layer peaches over brown sugar layer, adding four slices to each well.

  • 5. Make batter: In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds. Make a well in center of flour mixture. In a separate mixing bowl mix together sugar and 3 Tbsp melted butter then whisk in egg, vanilla and buttermilk, mixing until well blended. Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture and using a wooden spoon, stir just until combined.

  • 6. Spoon batter over peach layer: Divide mixture among muffin cups adding about a 1/4 cup to each, then spread into an even layer.

  • 7. Bake until set: Bake in preheated oven until toothpick comes out clean (or with a crumb or two), about 18 – 21 minutes.
