Scale

If you are using fresh peaches, use the following ingredients

Filling:

  • 2 quarts of fresh peaches – sliced
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • *You can substitute canned peaches by omitting the fresh peaches and the 1/2 cup of sugar and substituting 2 (15 oz.) cans of peaches in heavy syrup – Drain 1 can

Batter:

  • 1/4 cup of butter melted
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. of salt
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp. of nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. If you are using fresh peaches: place the peaches in a large saucepan and heat on low heat allowing the peaches to sweat out for a minute. Add the sugar and stir in. Increase the heat to medium/high and boil the sliced fresh peaches with the sugar for 5 minutes. It will soften the peaches and form a syrup. Stir constantly – sugar may burn if you do not watch it
