|Peaches||5 Medium, peeled and cut up|
|Sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Sifted flour||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Baking powder||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
Pile up the peaches in a 9- or 10-inch pie plate or shallow casserole; they will shrink in the baking.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1/3 cup of the sugar.
Cream the butter and remaining sugar together and stir in the slightly beaten egg.
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together and stir into butter-sugar-egg mixture to make a smooth batter.
Push this batter in small tablespoons over the peaches, and don't worry if there are a few gaps.
Preheat the oven to 425°, but reduce the heat to 350° when you put in the peaches.
Bake 20 minutes.
Serve either warm or well chilled with cream or ice cream over it.
