Hey! The month of July has me crisscrossing the country, from a road trip to Chicago to a plane ride “home” to Oregon. While I’m away, I’ve lined up some awesome guest posts for y’all. Today, Leah is sharing her family’s easy peach cobbler recipe.
Hello Winstead Wandering Followers!
First let me say a big hearty thanks to Winstead Wandering for letting us be a guest on her blog. We love what Abby does here and her recipes are amazing (thanks, Leah! You’re too sweet!). We have added several to our list of family favorites. We are honored to be a part of such a special place….now let’s cook.
I love the farmers market. There are just so many things to love about buying directly from a farmer that makes his living growing vegetables for our table. I love the smells, the free tastes and the proximity of buying fresh food for dinner that night. Plus how can you not enjoy meeting and getting to know local growers that bring you yummy goodness ever single week. I love my local grocer and I am thankful for the convenience of it, but buying from the Farmers Market is just so wonderful.
We have a fantastic one near us that brings in some of the best fruit and vegetables from all over Georgia grown by local farmers. As the weather warms it is getting to be part of my favorite season….Fruit season. You know, apricots, strawberries, blueberries, watermelon. All full of fantastic sweetness not available from hot house growers.
The other day as I perused the market I came upon Georgia peaches. Homegrown goodness I just had to have. They smelled unbelievable and I knew they would be super sweet. So, I picked a bag of scratch and dent peaches deciding to make a peach pie or cobbler for my family.
My family loves when I bake and baking is my happy place. So today I am going to share with you, my Simple Skillet Peach Cobbler Recipe. You can make right in your cast iron skillet. Seriously, it will take you no time and you will have an awesome dessert for your family or dinner party.
You could easily adapt this for other types of fruit. And for a nice variation, you could add Craisins. I hope you love this recipe as much as my family does. It’s always a crowd pleaser and we are usually scraping the skillet for the last bits of ooey goodness.
Simple Skillet Peach Cobbler
3-4 cups peaches (peeled and sliced)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar (more depending on taste and sweetness of fruit)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup of milk
Cast Iron Skillet
Melt butter in 10 inch cast iron skillet on stove top. Mix dry ingredients in small bowl. Add egg and milk to dry ingredients. Pour batter into skillet and top with peaches (no need to stir into butter). Reduce heat to low/medium and cover skillet.
Cook cobbler for 25-40 minutes depending on temperature being careful not to burn bottom. Cobbler is done when batter appears cooked and not liquid. Do not overcook or it will be dry.
Serve warm with fresh cream, ice cream or whipped cream.
Makes 4-6 servings
