1 stick (8 T) Butter
1 cup sugar
¾ cup self-rising flour
¾ cup milk
1 28oz can sliced peaches in syrup – mostly drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in deep baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix sugar and flour; add milk slowly to prevent lumping. Pour over melted butter.

Do not stir.

Spoon fruit over top, gently pouring in syrup.

Do not stir.

Batter will rise to the top during baking.

Bake for 30 – 45 minutes.

Good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Note: You may use fresh blueberries, strawberries, black berries, cherries, apples, peaches or pears. Clean, peel and core 2 cups fruit. Bring to boil with 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring often. Make sure sugar is completely dissolved and substitute this mixture for canned peaches.
