Peach Crunch

Peaches are in season. I had a Georgia peach with my lunch today. I was thinking about what to bring to a neighborhood social we are having over at the church tonight and I thought of my mother-in-law’s Peach Crunch. This is one of David’s favorite desserts and it is pretty easy to put together. I just used store bought canned peaches but everyone knows that home canned peaches are best if they are available. Tasty.

2 quarts sliced peaches

2 tsp tapioca

2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter, margarine, melted or 1/2 cup salad oil

Arrange peaches in a lightly greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Sprinkle with tapioca. Combine the dry ingredients and add the eggs. Mix until until crumbly and cover the peaches and tapioca with the mixture, spreading evenly. Drizzle melted butter or oil over all. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes until golden brown on top. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Also wonderful cold or room temperature. Good stuff!
