I wanted some peach cobbler, but being me I kept messing around with the recipe and ended up with this delicious mixture. Hope you enjoy it as I did. Its strange but very good, especially if you serve it warm and add some french vanilla ice cream. Yummy!!

If you love the spices of fall and peach cobbler, then this dessert is for you. It's the best of both worlds rolled into one yummy dessert. To top it off, it's super easy to make. The peaches magically sink to the bottom and the perfect sugary cake-like crust forms on top. While cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and allspice are fall flavors, you can really enjoy this year around. The spices are a nice surprise and a bit of a twist on the traditional peach cobbler. This was very popular in our kitchen and we guarantee it will be in yours too.

  • 1 box
    Jiffy cake mix
  • 1 c
    self-rising flour

How To Make upside-down peach cobbler spice cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. (I used my 2 1/2 qt deep dish round casserole dish for this recipe and had to play with the baking time due to the depth of the dish.)
  • Butter and sugar in a baking dish.
    Place butter and sugar in a casserole dish.
  • Butter and sugar melting in an oven.
    Place in oven while it is preheating.
  • Cinnamon, flour and other dry ingredients mixed in a bowl.
    In a separate bowl, mix together all dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Melted butter and sugar removed from the oven.
    Once butter is melted remove casserole dish from oven. Add in 1/2 can of evaporated milk.
  • Dry ingredients added to the butter and sugar mixture.
    Whisk in dry ingredients until well blended.
  • Peaches placed on top of batter.
    Pour can of peaches with juice into batter and mix well.
  • 8
    Place mixture in oven and bake until a toothpick comes out clean (about 45 minutes). (I test with a butter knife due to the depth of the casserole bowl I was using.) The cake may be a little undone on the bottom but that may be some of the peach juice.
  • Baked cobbler cooling.
    Remove from oven when done and let set for a few minutes.
  • Cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
    You can leave it in the casserole dish and serve from there or turn out on a plate or serving platter, but be careful since most of the peaches have settled in the bottom of the cake. Serve while still warm with the ice cream of your choice. Enjoy!
