Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put 1/4 cup melted coconut oil in cast iron skillet and move oil around the skillet, so that all edges and sides are covered in oil. Set aside.
In mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in almond milk and egg. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl; toss peach slices with honey, lemon juice, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Spoon batter (flour and egg mixture) over coconut oil in skillet. DO NOT stir.
Spoon peaches evenly and gently over batter. DO NOT stir. Pour any juices remaining, from peaches, over the top of the cake.
Place skillet in oven at 350 degrees F. for 35-40 minutes and until the top of the cake is lightly browned.
*If you do not have an oven safe skillet, try using a 9 x 9 (or other similar size) baking dish. *I calculated calories with 6 large slices, for a lower calorie count make your slices smaller. I'm sure you could get about 10 smaller slices.
