1 stick butter or margarine
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Dash of salt
1 qt. fruit, sweetened (peaches, cherries, blackberries, etc)
Melt butter in baking pan.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk.
Pour batter into the pan on top of the butter; cover with fruit.
Do not stir; batter will rise to top as it bakes and absorbs the flavor of the fruit.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
