Peach Cobbler is a comfort classic that evokes mid-summer, warm sunshine, and bright blue sky days.

Even in the heart of winter.

For me, summer requires at least one peach cobbler on the dinner table.

Whether that be this skillet peach cobbler, or a slow cooker peach cobbler, or the traditional and classic peach cobbler our grandmother’s made.

All You Need for this Peach Cobbler

In addition to simply pantry ingredients, all you need is an oven-proof skillet. I prefer a cast-iron skillet.

If you need to clean it or season it, see our post on How to Season a Cast-Iron Skillet.

Peach Cobbler Ingredients

These simple ingredients are most likely already in your pantry. 

  • Peaches: Fresh or frozen peaches, peeled and sliced. Drained canned peaches can work too. 
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar sweetens this skillet dessert and enhances the peach flavor.
  • Butter: This helps brown the outside edges of the cobbler and keep it from sticking to the cast iron skillet. Plus, it adds delicious flavor.
  • Cobbler Batter: A simple batter consisting of flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

How to Make Skillet Peach Cobbler

This cobbler is incredibly simple to make and takes about 5 minutes to whip up the batter.

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. On the stovetop, heat the butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet on the stovetop until it’s mostly melted. Swirl around until it coats the skillet, this will keep the cobbler from sticking to the pan.

STEP 2: Pour the batter into the warm skillet, over the top of the butter, and scatter sugared peach slices on top.
