Peach Buckle

Active Time - 15 minutes, Total Time - 1 hour, 20 minutes (Makes 8 servings)


3 large firm, ripe peaches (about 24 oz)

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Pit peaches (peel if desired), then cut into 1/2-inch slices. Add peach slices to medium bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar; toss to coat. Combine in large bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 cup sugar until blended.

2. Melt butter in IQ-inch cast-iron skillet on medium. Meanwhile, whisk milk and vanilla into flour mixture until well blended; then carefully whisk in melted butter until blended. Pour batter into same skillet and top evenly with peaches; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.

3. Bake 50-55 minutes until top is golden and center is set. Remove from oven and set aside 10 minutes to cool. Serve warm.

Chef’s tip: serve with your favorite ice cream, dessert sauce, or whipped topping.
