This is a modified version of a recipe posted by Life in the Lofthouse. My version was made gluten free and reduced/modified the amount of sugar used.

In a medium bowl, with an electric hand-mixer, beat sugar and softened butter together until combined. Add flours, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix. Then add in egg and vanilla. Continue to beat and mix together until just combined. (Batter will be the consistency of cookie dough batter.)

Using a spatula, carefully spread batter over the tops of peaches. Trying to spread out as evenly as you can and covering most of the peaches.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
