It’s peach AND raspberry season here in Utah so why not combine these two delicious fruits? I love the combo of peaches and raspberries! My Peach Raspberry Mini Upside Down Cakes are the yummiest, easiest yet impressive looking dessert. I’m excited to share this recipe with you!
Buttery brown sugar peaches and raspberries are topped with a cinnamon buttermilk cake then baked to perfection. Drizzle a simple vanilla glaze over and enjoy! You can also skip the glaze and serve them a la mode.

How to Make Peach Raspberry Mini Upside Down Cakes
First, make the buttermilk cake by combining the above ingredients plus a little cinnamon. I decided to add the cinnamon after I took this picture and I’m glad I did. Oh, and this is the same buttermilk cake recipe that I used for my Peaches and Cream Streusel Cake!
Next, assemble the cakes by adding butter, brown sugar, fruit, then cake batter to a greased 12-cup muffin tin.
I highly suggest placing a baking sheet under during baking in case of spillage. The fruit bubbles a lot and mine did spill over a bit. They don’t look like much when the Peach Raspberry Mini Upside Down Cakes come out of the oven but just wait until you flip them over!
Cool them for 10-15 minutes then run a knife around the edges. Place a cooling rack on top of the cakes then flip over. Then place the inverted cooling rack on top of a baking sheet to catch drips.
The glaze is made with a mixture of confectioners sugar, vanilla, and milk. Drizzle over the top of mostly cooled cake and devour! These Peach Raspberry Mini Upside Down Cakes are seriously the best and my family raved and raved over them. The cake is not too soft and not too dense. It has some crunch on the outside and holds up to the juicy fruit so well. You’re going to love them!

- Baking spray
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare a 12 count muffin pan by spraying with baking spray.
- Place 1/2 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon brown sugar in the bottom of each muffin cup. Next add 2-3 raspberries and 2-3 slices of peaches.
- Make the cake by creaming together remaining 1/2 cup softened butter and sugar together for 3-5 minutes using a hand or stand mixer. Add in egg and vanilla then combine well.
