    1. Preheat an oven to 165 degrees C. Put the butter in a 20cm square cake tin and place in the oven to melt while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
    2. Bring the peaches with syrup and 2 tablespoons of sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes; set aside.
    3. Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in the milk until the mixture is just moistened.
    4. Pour the mixture into the hot cake tin over the butter. Spoon the peach slices and most of the syrup over the batter.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Return to the oven and bake until the top is golden brown; 30 to 45 minutes longer.

    My family LOVED it! I didn't have self rising flour so used regular flour and a teas. of baking powder. I didn't put in nutmeg. I added vanilla. I was worried about it being too sweet, but it was perfect. I served it w/ vanilla bean ice cream. WONDERFUL!  -  10 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for my family, and made no changes to the recipe. It was a winner! We loved the crusty top. Serve warm with fresh whipping cream or vanilla ice cream. Yum!  -  14 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Way too sweet. I made this using 1/2 cup sugar in the batter, 1 tablespoon in the peaches and 1 tablespoon sprinkled on top. It had the perfect sweetness and I could actually taste the peaches.  -  26 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
