Preheat oven to 350°.

In a 12 inch cast iron skillet, melt 6 tablespoons of butter. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons sugar. Cook until mixture is bubbly and smooth. Remove from heat.

Mix the flour and baking soda, set aside. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture, alternating with sour cream, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla; mix well until batter is thick and fluffy.

Arrange peach slices in a circular pattern, overlapping slightly in sugar mixture in cast iron pan. Spoon the batter over the peaches making sure not to disturb the peaches.
