Sweet summer peaches belong in an effortless upside-down cake, an absolute breeze to throw together in a trusty cast iron skillet. Butter, brown sugar, and a splash of bourbon coat the skillet followed by an artful arrangement of peach slices. Spoon the easy cinnamon and vanilla bean batter over the top before popping the skillet into the oven; in no time at all, the kitchen will be perfumed with peaches and caramel.
The cake emerges golden with juices bubbling, ready to be flipped. Cool slightly before serving and dig in – some things are meant to be enjoyed straight from the oven.
