This is my own version of another recipe I recently posted. I had a box of gingerbread mix in the pantry and I also had one can of peaches and one can of pears. So I whipped this up and it is awesome, even if it is cheating a little bit!

How to Make PEACHES & PEARS UPSIDE-DOWN GINGERBREAD

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave and pour it into a 9" square baking pan. Pour brown sugar over the melted butter to absorb the butter and pat it down into an even layer.
  2. Drain the peaches and pears and lay the peach halves cut side up on top of the brown sugar. Arrange the pear slices in between peach halves.
  3. Follow the directions on the gingerbread mix to make the batter, and pour the batter over the peaches and pears.
  4. Follow the directions on the box for oven temperature and length of time to bake. Check for doneness by sticking a knife halfway into the center. If it comes back with batter on it, return the cake to the oven for another 5 or 10 minutes and then test it again.
  5. When the knife comes out clean, remove the cake and let it cool for a few minutes.
  6. To serve, cut a square out of the pan, and spoon the juices from the bottom of the pan over the cake. Top with whipped cream. Best served hot from the oven.
