Ready In:




  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 425º. Butter a 13x9x2-inch glass or ceramic baking dish.
  • Whisk together cornstarch, cinnamon, sugar, and peaches in a large bowl and toss to combine. Add the more delicate cherries last and give a gentle stir.
  • Transfer fruit mixture into the baking dish and bake for ten to fifteen minutes until bubbling. While fruit bakes, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add buttermilk and melted butter (allow it to cool slightly before adding.) Mix just until a dough forms.
  • Drop batter onto fruit and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of sugar.
  • Bake until top is golden brown, about 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

    First the rating; this turned out to be one of the best tasting dessert dishes I ever made. Next, a confession; I used canned cherry pie filling. Nonetheless, your topping with the fresh peaches, simply amazing!

    I am giving it two stars because I haven't made it yet but it sounds so yummy. I want to know if you use sweet Bing cherries or tart cherries in this recipe? Any ideas? Now it is two weeks later and I made it and changed my rating to 5 stars. I did use tart cherries because that is what I had so I doubled the sugar ( the peaches were from a friend's tree and were a little tart also) It was fabulous. I am thinking I might make this all winter using frozen fruit. the
