This old-fashioned dessert is always popular and is best with fresh peaches. We’ve seen some similar recipes in 19th-century cookbooks that went by the name of “bird’s-nest pudding” or “crow’s-nest pudding.”

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) salted butter
4 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup milk
raw sugar, for topping (optional)
whipped cream (optional)


Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13-inch baking pan. Add peaches. Sprinkle ½ cup sugar over peaches, dust with nutmeg and cinnamon, and stir together.

In a medium-size bowl, combine remaining ½ cup sugar with flour, baking powder, and milk. Stir until smooth. Pour over peaches. Sprinkle with raw sugar (if using). Bake until top is golden, 30–40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream if you like.

The topping looks rolled out. I prefer a rolled crust. Looks delicious.

In the picture it appears that it is topped with a course granulated sugar so I'm using Turbinado raw cane sugar on the top of mine.
