Kathy Coup's Peach Upside Down Cake

We’ve flipped for Peach Upside Down Cake! And, especially delighted that Kathy Coup shared her family recipe . . . caramelized fruity goodness over a tender, light cake that has stood the test of time. The original Dinette Cake recipe shown below is from Kathy’s grandmother. Kathy’s mother used the recipe for upside down cake. Following in her footsteps, Kathy made this Peach Upside Down Cake first for her children and now for her grandchildren.
