instructions
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the spreadable butter from the refrigerator to soften. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper; thinly slice into rounds (remove the ribs and seeds for a milder dish). Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. Lightly grease a 9-inch cake pan.

Make the topping
2 Make the topping

In a small pot, combine the sugar, worcestershire sauce, and softened butter. Cook on medium, whisking frequently, 4 to 6 minutes, or until melted and thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat. Transfer to the greased pan and spread into an even layer. Starting in the center of the pan and working your way towards the edges, arrange the halved tomatoes (cut side down) and as much of the sliced pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper.

Make the batter & bake the cake
3 Make the batter & bake the cake

In a medium bowl, combine the cornbread mix, spice blend, flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Crack the eggs into a large bowl; add the sour cream and 1/2 cup of water. Whisk until smooth. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Stir until just combined (be careful not to overmix). Pour the batter over the topping; carefully spread into an even layer. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until the cake is set and cooked through.

Invert the cake & serve your dish
4 Invert the cake & serve your dish

Remove the baked cake from the oven; immediately run a butter knife around the edges to release the cake from the sides of the pan. Carefully place a serving dish over the cake and invert. Serve while still warm. Enjoy!
