1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter 2 to 4 cups sliced peaches and their juices 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1. Put the butter in a deep casserole at least 9 inches in diameter, put it in a cold oven, and preheat to 350°F 2. If the peaches are not juicy, sprinkle them with some of the sugar and set aside for a while 3. Sift the baking powder and flour into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, milk and vanilla extract, and mix until evenly blended. The batter will be thin 4. When the butter has melted and the oven has reached 350°F, pour the batter all at once into the dish, then pour the peaches and juices into the center of the batter 5. Return to the oven and bake for about an hour or until the top is golden brown and a cake tester poked into the batter comes out clean 6. Serve, hot, warm, or at room temperature with or without cream, crème fraiche, or ice cream Make 8 servings, Pssst dont tell grandma this here.
