1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour   
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder 
2 cups peaches, peeled & sliced, reserve juices
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the butter in a 9 by 13 inch overproof serving dish and place in the oven to melt the butter. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl and stir in the milk and sugar to make a batter. Remove the hot dish with the melted butter from the oven and pour in the batter. Spoon the peaches and the juices evenly over the batter. Place the dish back into the oven and bake until batter is browned and has risen up and around the fruit, about 30 minutes.
