Ingredients
  • Caramel Peaches:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 large ripe peaches (about 1 pound)
  • Cake:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature
Directions
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 9-inch cake pan, line with parchment paper, and butter parchment paper.

  • 2. For Peaches: Stir sugar, corn syrup, allspice berries, and water in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring continually, over medium heat, until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and cook, without stirring, until mixture turns an amber caramel, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and discard allspice. Pour caramel into pan and cool. Cut peaches into wedges and arrange in concentric circles on caramel. Set aside.

  • 3. For Cake: Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at time. Reduce speed to low. Add dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with sour cream, and beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Increase speed to medium and mix until batter is smooth, about 20 seconds.

  • 4. Spread batter evenly over peaches and bake until cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Cool cake for 20 minutes, in pan, on a rack.

  • 5. Slide a knife around edge of cake pan, invert pan onto a serving plate, and release cake. Remove parchment paper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
