Don’t like nectarines? Use peaches.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and divided
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 nectarines, sliced into 1 1/2-inch thick wedges

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate large bowl whisk together buttermilk, 4 tablespoons butter, vanilla and eggs. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir.

Add remaining 4 tablespoons butter to bottom of a 9-inch cake pan, swirling until well coated. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over melted butter. Arrange nectarine slices on top in a single layer. Scoop batter evenly over nectarines, smoothing out the top.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Run knife around the edge of cake and turn upside down onto a serving plate.
