12 peaches, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. grated orange rind
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. butter, chilled
3/4 cup buttermilk or 3/4 cup milk including 1 tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice
In a bowl, combine the peaches, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and the cinnamon. (The addition of the lemon juice will help the peaches to retain their colour.)
Transfer the peach mixture to a greased 8" x 8" baking dish, or similar size baking dish.
Combine the flour, orange rind, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and the remaining 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar in a bowl.
Using a pastry blender or fork cut in the chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Gently, stir in the buttermilk, just until moistened.
Drop the flour mixture over the peaches in the baking dish using a large spoon.
Bake at 375° F for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve warm or at room temperature plain, or with a dollop of low-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt.
