  • ½ cup (1 stick / 113g) butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (245 g) milk

Peach Mixture

  • 5-6 ripe peaches, peeled, cored, and sliced (about 5 cups)
  • cup (67 g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. (You could also use a 9x13-inch baking dish.)


  • In a medium bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. Slowly whisk in the melted butter. Pour the batter into the skillet.

Peach Mixture

  • Add the sliced peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon to a saucepan over medium heat and stir to combine, simmering for 2-3 minutes until sugar is dissolved and peaches are softened slightly. Add the peach mixture evenly over the top of the batter.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. (Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place it on the bottom of the oven to catch any drips.)

Sugar Topping

  • After 45 minutes, sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the top and return to oven. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve topped with ice cream or whipped topping.
