Cast Iron Skillet Peach Cobbler

This simple peach cobbler is virtually a mix & dump kind of dessert!
Make in a cast iron skillet or 8x8 baking dish. Either way it will be devoured.

I am not a traditional food blogger.

Most food bloggers will make and test a recipe many, many times before they share it with their fans. That is not me. My patience is short and quite frankly I just don't have time for all of that. What generally happens instead is that 95% of the time I get it right on the first try and I share it with you the following week.

It's just how I roll!

Saying this, I did make this peach cobbler TWICE.

I was given a GORGEOUS bag of fresh Iowa peaches {yes, Iowa can grow some really fantastic peaches if the weather cooperates} from a friend a couple weeks back. They were still a bit under ripe so I watched and waited another week before diving in.

Oh, and when I did.

Quite possibly some of the best peaches I've ever had.

I got the idea for cobbler in my head, but since I had never baked a peach cobbler before I really just winged it and prayed for a good outcome.

My first attempt was about 85% perfection. I tweaked a few things, baked it up again {this time giving the WHOLE dish to my neighbors} and well, the second time around was perfect.

Oh my goodness, the combination of syrupy warm peaches baked into a crispy batter and then topped with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream?

I do believe this cobbler very well could win some awards.

Now, listen up.

As I know I will get questions. If you do not have a nice, seasoned cast iron skillet to use, do not fret. Grab a simple glass 8x8 baking dish and it works just the same.

I just love cooking and baking with cast iron {plus, it makes for pretty pictures}.

But trust me the taste will be just as spectacular if using a regular baking dish. Heck, you could even bake it in a disposable tin foil pan to take to a friend or neighbor. I can guarantee they'll love it!

See the edges of this dessert?

There is a reason it gets crispy, yet stays soft and buttery. When you look at the recipe you'll notice there is no stirring!

You melt the butter in the pan, you pour the batter over the butter and you lastly pour the syrupy peaches on top. Never stirring or mixing together.

A kid could make this!

I cannot wait for you all to make this!

Grab some fresh peaches and just a few ingredients and you're golden. Make sure you have vanilla ice cream or whipped topping on hand - it's a MUST. They taste perfect together!
