I have no idea how old this recipe is, but it came to me about 30 years ago from a church cookbook. I suppose it is pretty standard, but it is really quick, easy and delicious. It brings back memories, as I used to make it on Christmas morning for our family as a special treat in the bleak mid-winter in Ohio! So grab a couple peaches and some blueberries, and whip some up for your dessert--most of the other ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
Combine in saucepan:
1/4 c. sugar, 1/4 c. brown sugar, 1 Tbsp cornstarch
Add 1/2 c. water and blend well. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick.
Add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 2 c. sliced fresh peaches, 1 c. blueberries.
Turn into baking dish.
Mix together 1 c. flour, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt
Add 1/2 c. milk, 1/4 c. soft butter & beat until smooth.
Spoon over fruit.
Sprinkle with mixture of 2 Tbsp. sugar. & 1/4 tsp. nutmeg.
Bake @ 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm if possible. ENJOY!
Note: If you do this in the bleak mid-winter, you may use one cup frozen blueberries and two cups frozen peaches, omitting the granulated sugar from the fruit mixture.
