I make this as a comfort dessert one evening when Allan was away on a conference for a week. I didn’t plan to eat almost half of it in one day, but somehow it just disappeared. I think that Bob must have had some. I hope Bob had some…
It was really easy to put together, and when I added the batter to the melted butter I was curious as to how it would turn out. It looked a bit strange, melted butter around the edges of the batter with the pear halves embedded in the batter.
This gives a sweet biscuit topping on the fruit, and the juice makes a little sauce with the pears and butter. It is good with some ice cream or cream. A very simple, good weekday dessert. Not one I would use for company though, with tinned pears!
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter
- Choice of fruit (peaches or pears are great, canned or fresh)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Put in a 9×13-inch pan and put pan in oven until butter melts.
Meanwhile, combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Gradually add milk and vanilla; mix well. Add to baking pan.
Spread fruit over top. Use a little of the juice from the canned fruit. DO NOT STIR.
Bake 25-35 minutes. Very quick and very good!
