To me, a camping trip is not complete without some cobbler made over the fire. Also, it should definitely be served in a cast iron pan because it makes it all the more rustic. But do you know what just doesn’t seem right? It’s not right to only enjoy cast iron skillet cobbler when camping. It is simply too delicious and needs to find its way home. So, I give you…Skillet Peach Cobbler. A Southern dream.

I used to be very apprehensive of peaches. The fuzzy skin on a piece of fruit freaked me out. Also, I never knew how to pick a good one at the store — too soft, too hard, too many bruises. But since we live just a few miles from the Georgia border, it is only right that I get acquainted with the juicy Georgia peaches! And I am so glad I gave them a try. Juicy, flavorful, and refreshing.

This cobbler is a great addition to a summer party. Peaches will always be best in the summer and I have found it best to go for a slightly soft, but not mushy, peach. I like the skillet presentation because it allows people to take what they want. It also allows for a beautiful and delicious dessert, but the skillet makes it feel more inviting. I simply adore it.

Preparing this dessert is pretty straight forward. Toss together the peach filling ingredients. Then, blitz together the topping in a food processor. And finally, top it off with some cinnamon sugar.

Bring that little taste of summer Georgia campfire home to share with those around you.

Peach Filling

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 medium peaches
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon Topping

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 tablspoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Peach Filling

  • Cut the peaches in half, remove the pit, and slice into thin slices. If you do not like the peach skin, peel the skin off before cutting the peach in half. 
  • In an 8″ cast iron skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and set aside. Swirl the butter around the pan to coat. 
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the sliced peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. 
  • Put the peach filling in the bottom of the buttered skillet. Use a spatula to make the peaches into a flat layer. 

Cinnamon Topping

  • In the bowl of a food processor, blitz together the flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Combine until uniform. 
  • Transfer the combined ingredients into a medium bowl. Fold in the heavy cream. 

Cinnamon Sugar

  • In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. 

Putting It All Together

  • Spoon large drops of the cinnamon topping mixture onto the peaches in the skillet. Using the back of the spoon, gently press the dough down to make it a bit more flat. 
  • Brush the top of the topping with heavy cream. Sprinkle all over with the cinnamon sugar mixture. 
  • Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the topping is cooked through and the peach filling is bubbly. 
  • Let the cobbler cool slightly before serving. Can be served with ice cream or whipped cream.
