- 1/2 c
- butter, melted
- 2 lb
- fresh or frozen peaches, sliced
- 1 c
- self rising flour
- 1 c
- 1 c
- extra sugar, if needed for fruit
- 1/2 tsp
- ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp
- vanilla extract
- vanilla ice cream or
- fresh whipped cream.
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
2Melt butter in a 9x9 square glass baking dish or similar pan. Set aside.
3In a medium mixing bowl , combine flour, sugar, and milk, stirring until lump free. A whisk works best for this.
4Pour the batter into the the baking dish over the butter.
5Taste your peaches. If they are not very sweet or especially tart, sprinkle them with a little extra sugar. This step can be done up to a day in advance if needed and the result will be even better.
6Distribute the fruit, including juice over the batter.
7Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 min, until golden brown.
The edges will be buttery and crispy and the center soft and fruity. Cool until warm and serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream if desired.
8Over the years I have used this recipe for all kind of fruits and berries and never had a bad result. I have added a little cinnamon to the fruit from time to time. Vanilla adds an extra dimension to the batter, but I love it just the way I made it as a girl.
If you use a fruit that is not very juicy, you might add a little more juice. For example, I add about 1/2 cup of apple juice if I use apples.
