I love peaches, but I hate peeling them. I usually buy nectarines for that very reason. I looked up peaches in an old cookbook and it detailed a quick and easy way to get the skin off....Place a peach in a pan of boiling water for 15 seconds, then remove and submerge in cold water. The skin practically falls right off!
I made a half recipe in an 8x8 pan, so you can do the same if you are only making it for a couple of people.
1 big can + 1 small can peaches or 10-12 fresh peaches
3/4 c milk
3/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 c flour
3/4c + 1/3 c sugar
6 Tbl butter
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1-1/2 c sugar
3/8 tsp salt
1-1/2 Tbl flour
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Grease a 9x13 pan
- Put in the peaches. They will fill the bottom of the pan.
- Mix batter and spoon over peaches.
- Combine topping. Sprinkle over batter.
- Pour 1-1/2 c boiling water over all of it.
- Bake 50 minutes at 350*
