crispy peach cobbler in a skillet
I see my cast iron pan every time I walk into the kitchen. Calling my name. I love cooking and baking with it. My family especially loves it when I make peach cobbler in a skillet cast iron pan. It is so simple and easy to make. I love how crispy it turns out in the cast iron pan. All that delicious butter! . . and peaches of course.
This recipe is great when you can go to the market and get fresh peaches. If you can’t find fresh peaches at the store, you could substitute a can of peaches (use about half the juice from canned peaches)
Serve with a little ice cream and you’ve got peaches and cream!
You can serve dinner and have the cobbler cooking in the oven while you are eating. A great dish we like to eat warm (or warmed up).
5-6 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into wedges
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons small pats (cubed) butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Take your peaches, peel, pit and slice. If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can used drained canned peaches.
In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Add in peaches and toss them in the bowl to coat.
Place peaches into your greased skilled (I did mine in a design to get as many peaches as I could)
Pour the juices over the peaches.
Place onto the stove and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes, allowing it to bubble and soften the peaches.
In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, Add the butter and mix with a fork until the butter is incorporated and looks like crumbs.
Pour crumb mix over peaches and spread out evenly. The mix will start to absorb some of the peach juices.
Add the 2 tablespoons of butter over the top. You will want it to cover it so that when it melts most of the top is covered (this gives it the crunch)
Bake about about 30 minutes.
