- 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
- 1 & 3/4 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour + 1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda + 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- Ground cinnamon, optional
Combine the peaches, 3/4 cup sugar and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top leaving most of liquid in pan. Some liquid with peaches is ok.
To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
