SAMPLE RECIPE
Peach Amaretto Upside-Down Cake
1 1/2 cups ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
1 tsp. BAKING POWDER
Pinch of SALT
1/2 cup SUGAR
1/2 cup BUTTERMILK
1 EGG, lightly beaten
4 Tbsp. BUTTER
1/2 cup packed BROWN SUGAR
1/4 cup AMARETTO
4 1/2 cups peeled, sliced PEACHES (1/2-inch slices)

Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk and egg. In a 9-inch cast-iron (or other ovenproof) skillet, melt butter over low heat. Stir 2 tablespoons of the melted butter into the buttermilk mixture. Add brown sugar to the skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until sugar dissolves. Add amaretto and stir well; remove from heat. Layer peaches in the skillet. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, mix well and pour over peaches. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool and invert onto a plate.

Why Are Peaches Fuzzy?

Not all experts agree on the reason for "peach fuzz," but here are some of their theories. Experts agree that the fuzz helps the peach defend itself from various threats. Some feel the fuzz was developed to give the fruit more resistance to insects and diseases. Another theory is that the fuzz protects peaches from sunburn and potential water loss.
