For the Filling:

  • 5 cups peaches, peeled and diced (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

For the Topping:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Optional Garnish:

  • Ice cream, whipped cream, or Cool Whip


  1. Preheat your oven to 400º F (204º C). Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray.
  2. Prepare the topping: In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together brown sugar, sugar, and nutmeg. Add butter and water, and bring to a boil, stirring continuously until the sugar is fully dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Make the filling: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in the diced peaches.
  4. Assemble the pudding: Pour the filling into the prepared baking dish. Gently pour the topping over the filling.
  5. Bake: Place in the preheated oven and bake for 50-55 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil if necessary, to prevent excessive browning.
  6. Cool and serve: Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Serve warm, ideally with a scoop of ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or a swirl of Cool Whip on top.
