Yield: 8 to 10 servings
4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Combine the peaches, 1 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 deep 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, gently pouring in syrup. Batter will rise
to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice
