1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar (mix in with this, 1/8 tsp cinnamon)
3/4 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup milk
2 cups fresh peaches, sliced and cooked, OR
28 oz. can sliced peaches in heavy syrup
more cinnamon for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
If using fresh peaches, put into saucepan with the one cup of sugar and one cup of water. Bring this to a boil, then after reducing heat, simmer for aproximately 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally, and do not strain off the liquid.
Next, place butter into a 2 quart baking dish and place into the oven to melt it. Mix sugar, flour and cinnamon together, and slowly mix in milk and stir continuously to avoid any lumps. Remove the dish with butter from the oven, and pour the batter over melted butter. Do NOT stir this mixture, then drop spoonfuls of the peaches (without their liquid)into this, without stirring. On top of the peaches, pour out the liquid the peaches were in. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon on top, and bake for approximately 30-45 minutes or until the top is golden. A crust from the batter, will naturally form.
Serves 8, and is very yummy warm with vanilla ice cream!!
