Skillet Peach Cobbler is a slightly sweet, but not-too-sweet Fall dessert that is amazing with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. We like to eat it fresh (and warm!) straight from the oven!
We are huge fruit lovers, and when I over-buy (ummm yea, frequently) I tend to either make smoothies or turn the fruit into something sweet. Lately, I’ve been buying peaches EVERY time I go to the store. We love them, especially in season. The best ones are those that literally drip down your face after each bite. JUICYYYY! 🙂
If I had to name my favorite fruit, I’d say
blueberries, raspberries, apples, peaches….ok I give! I can’t name a favorite fruit. I love them ALL!!
Watermelon! That’s it!! 🙂
This Skillet Peach Cobbler is really easy. I used one bowl (and wiped it out between layers) and one skillet.
- For the peaches: Peel and slice the peaches, and add remaining ingredients. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
- For the topping: Mix all ingredients, making sure you use cold butter. Add the hot water, stir, and pour over baked peaches. Bake for another 15-20 minutes.
See? Easy as pie. Or cobbler.
I recommend letting the cobbler sit on your countertop for about 15 minutes before digging in. Serve with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream and let it get all melty and creamy!
Please note that this recipe serves only FOUR! I have a variety of cast iron skillets and I used my smaller #6, as you can see below. My family loves sweets, but one serving is enough if you live with a food blogger. BTW, THIS large cast iron skillet on Amazon looks like a good one, if you are in the market for one.
Since I tested this recipe a few times, the remainder of this cobbler went to our neighbors. I ran it over while it was still warm, explaining the missing spoonfuls that I used to photograph the recipe (and then someone ate it)! I hope you enjoyed it, Dan and Debbie! 🙂
If you are making this Skillet Peach Cobbler for a larger group, just double it (do you know that you can adjust the quantities below for any of my recipes?) and use a larger skillet. This is definitely going on the rotation for company.
Warm cobbler fresh out of the oven —> Ooooohhhh YES! 🙂
