Peach Bubble Cake


1 pound fresh or frozen peach slices

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

½ tsp. cornstarch

2 T. salted butter


½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, at room


1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1½ cups all-purpose flour

1½ tsp. baking powder

½ cup milk


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. To make the peach filling, place the peach slices in the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish or 8-by-8-inch casserole dish. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the peaches and toss to coat. Cut the butter into small chunks and sprinkle it over the peaches. Bake the peaches for 30 minutes. While the peaches are baking, prepare the cake topping: In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and granulated sugar until the mixture is light and creamy in texture, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat again until smooth. In a separate small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Slowly beat half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture, and then beat in half of the milk. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture and milk. Briefly stir the peaches to redistribute the sugar and butter mixture. Pour the cake batter over the top, making sure to evenly cover all the peaches. Place the dish on a baking sheet to catch any filling that may bubble up and out while baking. Bake the cake for 35 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown on top and the peach filling is bubbling up around the edges.
