4 peaches, peeled and sliced (about 4 cups total)

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon almond extract


3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup low-fat (1 percent) milk

Vanilla frozen yogurt or fresh whipped cream, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine the peaches, honey, almond extract, a pinch of salt and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the peaches begin to soften and the liquid has reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, remaining 2 tablespoons butter and a pinch of salt. Slowly add the milk, whisking to break down the lumps of butter. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Spoon the peaches and most of their syrup over the top of the batter and immediately transfer to the oven.
  4. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm, topped with vanilla frozen yogurt or fresh whipped cream.
