Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups sliced (1/4 inch/5 mm thick) peaches peeled
  • 1 tablespoon grated gingerroot
CAKE:
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream

Method

Wrap foil over bottom and halfway up side of 9-inch (2.5 L) springform pan. Grease pan; set aside.

In small saucepan, melt brown sugar with butter over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes; pour into prepared pan. Starting at edge, arrange peaches, slightly overlapping, in concentric circles to cover completely. Sprinkle with ginger; set aside.

Cake: In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, orange rind, ginger and salt ; stir into butter mixture alternately with sour cream, making 3 additions of flour mixture and 2 of sour cream. Spoon over peaches and spread without disturbing peaches. Set on rimmed baking sheet.

Bake in bottom third of 350°F (180°C) oven until top springs back when lightly touched, about 1 hour. Let cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes. Invert onto flat serving plate.
