Peach Cobbler in a Mug Mix, an Excerpt from Easy Microwave Desserts in a Mug

2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon instant nonfat dry milk
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of salt
Blend all ingredients and place in a small plastic bag if using at a later date or giving as a gift.
To prepare: Place 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in a 12-ounce microwave-safe mug and microwave on high power until melted (about 20 seconds). Add cobbler mix and 2 tablespoons water. Stir with a fork until well blended. Add well-drained peaches on top of batter. Do not stir. Microwave for 2 minutes on 70% power. Let stand in microwave 2 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to eat.
For a Special Gift, Make a "You're a Peach" Mix in a Mug Gift (This is an excerpt from the "Gift Ideas" Section of Easy Microwave Desserts in a Mug)
Place a bag of Peach Scone Mix, Peach Cobbler Mix or Peach Crisp Mix (along with a snack-size container of peaches) in a mug, lined with colorful tissue paper.
Using ribbon or raffia, attach a tag with cooking instructions to the handle or write the instructions on a recipe card and tuck inside the mug.
From card stock, cut a small sign (about 1-1/2” X 2-1/2”) and write “You’re a Peach!” on it using colorful markers. Or use your computer to design a sign using "clip art", print it on card stock, and cut it out. Glue the sign to a wooden skewer or drinking straw and insert into the mug.
