Peaches are wonderful and so is this peachy dish. Just add some ice cream and you have a great dessert for friends and family.

2 (15.25 ounce) cans of sliced peaches, drained (reserve liquid) or about 4 cups fresh peaches
1/2 stick butter or margarine or 4 tablespoons
1 cup sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup evaporated milk (could use regular milk)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup syrup from canned peaches or 1 cup water if using fresh peaches
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Drain peaches reserving liquid if using canned peaches and spread in bottom of a 9 x 9 inch sprayed baking dish.  Cream together butter and 1/4 cup of the sugar with mixer.  Add the flour, baking powder and milk. Mix well.  Spread over peaches with a spoon.  Whisk together 3/4 cup of sugar, cornstarch, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.  Sprinkle this over the batter on the peaches.  Bring the 1 cup of water or peach juice to a boil in the microwave and then pour over the peaches.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 55 to 60 minutes.  Serve with topping of your choice or ice cream.  Makes about 8 servings. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you. This recipe is beyond special!

  2. Can this recipe be doubled?

  3. Instructions say to bring the peach juice or the water to a boil and pour over the peaches. You put this after the batter has been spread over the peaches. My question is:
    Should this be done prior to spreading the batter or do you pour the juices/water over the batter.

    Btw I still love your page and recipes!!!!

    I will be sharing this recipe with my produce customers this year. Looks absolutely delicious.

  6. Do I add the water BEFORE spreading the batter or AFTER spreading the batter?

    Judy, this Peach Crisp looks wonderful, but I have a question. When you say pour liquid over peaches, do you mean over the topping?

    Thanks so much for all your recipes. I follow you on facebook….
