1/2 C unsalted butter
1 C flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 C milk
1 + 1/4 C sugar
5 C sliced fresh or frozen peaches (can also use other fruits such as apples, blueberries
or blackberries. I would not use watery fruits like strawberries or raspberries)
1/2 t cinnamon
(If peaches do not have a good sweet-sour taste, may add lemon juice and/or more sugar)
Preheat oven to 350 deg.
Place butter in a 9 x 13″ casserole dish and put in the oven to melt.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, bp and salt. Stir in the sugar and milk until smooth.
In a separate bowl, toss the peaches with the 1/4 C of sugar and cinnamon.
Remove the dish with the melted butter and pour the batter in.
Spoon the peaches and then any juices evenly over the batter.
Place in oven and bake until batter is browned and has risen up and around the peaches, about 30 mins.
Serve warm, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
