So, you’re looking to make a skillet cobbler, huh? Read along, Friends!
Here’s a confession for you. I’m not actually a huge fan of chocolate desserts…you’ve probably noticed that I rarely share anything too chocolatey on here. Fruit desserts, though? Those are my JAM (heh…fruit…jam). Pies, crumbles, pop tarts and pastries are my favourite things, and now, I will happily add cobbler to that list too. I tried my hand at making a skillet cobbler for the first time just a few months ago. I LOVED how simple it was to make. There is truly no finesse to the mode of preparation and I’m 100% down with that. As much as I love carefully cutting pie dough for a perfectly braided decorative crust, 9 times out of 10 I will go for making a galette instead (*side note: this is my fave mini galette recipe) because they are just so simple. A skillet cobbler has a similar laid back, rustic, and easy feel to a galette…but it might even be easier!
I like to prepare cobbler in a cask iron skillet, but that is certainly not mandatory, use any oven safe baking dish that suits your fancy. I picked up this particular skillet on Amazon just last week – it’s affordable, made in USA, and comes in various sizes. SCORE. This is the 8″ version and that approximate pan size is what this recipe is tailored towards.
To make a skillet cobbler you prepare your wet dough mix and your fruit mix separately and simply pour the 2 into the same pan…you don’t even have to mix them! Sounds easy, right? Well, it is! Top it off with ice cream (even better if it’s homemade ice cream ;)) and you’ve got another goodie to add to the ‘Summer Desserts’ list! Read along to learn all about how to make a peach cobbler.
Peach cobbler is a simple and delicious dessert. This cobbler can be made using any fresh and seasonal fruit and is best paired with ice cream!
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the milk and egg and mix the bowl until there are no clumps.
Peel and slice your peaches. Cut the cherries off of the pit. Combine the two in a bowl and stir with the sugar and cinnamon. Depending on the season, feel free to use different fruit! 2 cups of fruit is perfect for this sized cobbler.
Heat your oven to 400 degrees. Add the butter to your cast iron skillet (or whatever cooking pan you choose) and add to the oven to melt.
Remove your skillet from the oven with the melted butter and pour your dough mixture into the skillet. Next, add the fruit mixture on top and do no stir.
Add your cobbler to the oven and bake until the top and edges are browned. This should take about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Best served warm and with ice cream. Enjoy!
