Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.
This dessert is perfect for entertaining guests on a summer night or even during the middle of the day at a cookout. Fresh peaches make this dish absolutely delicious. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy.
The batter does go on the bottom. It will rise to the top as it bakes. If it seems a little soggy as someone mentioned, just bake it a little longer. If you like it richer, you could use brown sugar with the peaches. You will still use white sugar in the batter. You will love making cobbler, because it's so easy but so tasty.
