Ingredients for the Topping:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 15- ounce can peaches drained and thinly sliced

Ingredients for the Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs separated
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • In a bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, then pour mixture in a 9-inch cake pan, then add the peaches.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then beat in the vanilla and egg yolks until combined.
  • Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until combined. Add the milk and beat again. Pour the remaining flour mixture into the bowl and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat the mixture on high speed until stiff. Pour the mixture into the batter and fold in until just combined.
  • Pour the batter over the peaches and spread evenly, being careful not to disturb the peaches.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool at least 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Flip the pan over onto a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
