  • ½ cup butter
  •  ½ cup sugar

For the batter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  •  Add sliced peaches and ½ cup of sugar to a mixing bowl and toss together.
  • Make the batter by whisking together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour in the milk and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the peaches over the melted butter and evenly distribute. Do not stir.
  • Pour the cobbler batter evenly over the peaches. Do not stir.
