Melt the butter and pour it into a baking mold, with Ø24-26cm (Ø10in). From the top, sprinkle the brown sugar to cover the whole base of the baking mold. Roll the slices of peaches cyclically and with a teaspoon we sprinkle a bit of sweet spoon of grape. Leave them for a while until we prepare the cake mix.
