Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches in juice
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Drain peaches, reserving 2 tablespoons juice. Cut peach slices lengthwise in half; pat dry.
  2. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, spices and reserved juice; spread into a 9-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Arrange peach slices over top.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together egg, vanilla, buttermilk and remaining butter. Add to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. Spoon over peaches.
