6 T butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar (divided)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1 1/4 cups whole milk
2 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen) peaches
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 10” cast iron skillet with butter.
In a medium bowl, whisk 1 ¼ cups sugar with 1 ¼ cups flour and 1 ¼ cups milk. Whisk in the ¾ stick of melted butter.
Pour the batter into the baking dish until about half full each. Sprinkle the peaches evenly over the top of the batter. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the peaches in each pan. Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 1 hour. When 10 minutes of the cooking time remains, sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over the top.
Spoon a large portion into a bowl and top with good quality vanilla ice cream.
