This dessert can be assembled in under 5 minutes. And it bakes in 30 minutes, so it will be done when you’ve finished supper. It’s nothing fancy, but it is a warm and delicious dessert when you don’t have the time or energy for something more labour intensive like a peach cake or crisp.
I made this tonight using peaches we bought at a fruit stand driving through the Okanagan valley. They take the dessert to the next level. In the past I have used frozen peaches, and in a pinch canned ones will do.
Vegans: use your favourite milk and vegan margarine as replacements.
- 1/4 cup butter, melted, swirled around in baking dish
- Peach slices (I used about 4 large ones but you can fill your dish)
- 1 cup flour
- 1 Heaped tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon*
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla – optional
While the butter melts, slice the peaches and mix the batter. I melted it in my cast iron pan that I used to bake the dessert in. I sliced each peach into 8 pieces. Arrange peaches on the butter.
Pour batter over the top. (If you have cinnamon sugar on hand, sprinkle some on top).
