Prep Time:  15 Minutes

Serves: 6

Cook Time:  60 Minutes


For Pancake Batter:

2 Cups Jiffy Mix Baking Mix

1 ¼ Cups Milk

1 Egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, mix 2 Cups Jiffy mix, 1 1/4 Cup milk and 1 egg together.    Batter may be slightly lumpy which is fine do not over mix.  As batter sits it will get fluffy.

For Pancake:

1 – 15oz can of sliced peaches

3 Tablespoons of Butter or Margarine

½ Cup Light Brown Sugar

¼ Cup of Maple Syrup

3 Tablespoons of Cinnamon Sugar

Melt 3 Tablespoons of Butter in 9” pie plate in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds. Coat edges of pie plate with the melted butter.  Place ½ Cup of the Brown Sugar in the pie plate and add 3 Tablespoons of syrup.  Using a fork mix the Brown sugar and Syrup together and spread evenly across bottom of the pie plate into a paste.  

Slice peaches in half long ways and place them around the pie plate in one outer circle and one inner circle on top of the brown sugar and maple syrup.

Sprinkle the peaches with 3 Tablespoons of cinnamon sugar.

Next carefully pour your pancake batter over the top of the peaches. 

Place into the preheated oven on a baking pan to prevent splatters in the oven.

Bake for about 1 hour or until the top of the pancake is golden brown. Remove from oven and run a knife around the edges of the pie plate to loosen the pie before allowing to cool.  Important let it rest 10 minutes before flipping.  If you don’t let it cool you will have a runny mess.

Again before flipping run knife around edge of pie plate again. To flip, place a baking pan over the top of the pie plate.  Carefully hold top and bottom pan tightly flip the pancake over.  Use a knife to lift edge of pie plate and carefully remove the pie plate. Cut the pancake into number of slices needed pending number of people for breakfast and move to serving plates.

Top with Blueberries, and drizzle with syrup and then sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.  At Cranberry Manor Bed and Breakfast we serve the upside down pancake with a side of scrambled eggs and sausage links.
