Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 40minutes
5 - 6fresh peaches or one 16 oz can of peachesIf using fresh, pit and slice them. White peaches are less acidic and sweeter while yellow peaches are a little more tart. If using canned, drain the juice.
1teaspoonpure vanilla extract
1cupall purpose flour
Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling over the top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice butter into ½ tablespoons and place on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Put the pan in the oven while it's preheating to melt the butter. After it melts, remove from oven and set aside.
Combine peaches, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Stir well. If using canned peaches, drain the juice before using.
Cook over a medium heat for 2 to 5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the peaches begin to wilt (this releases the natural flavors of the peaches).
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the milk and stir until just combined.
Pour the batter into baking pan over the melted butter. Smooth with a rubber spatula to form an even layer over the bottom.
Spoon the peach mixture, including the juices, over the batter in the pan.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar generously over the top of the ingredients.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 - 40 minutes until it browns. Serve warm.
