I live in Georgia where the peaches are sweet and in abundance. Although summer may be quickly drawing to a close, that does not mean you can;t still enjoy the delightful taste of a succulent Georgia peach.
On a recent trip to Blue Ridge, my husband and I stopped by one of our favorite local spots, Mercier Orchards! If you have not been here, add it to your list! They had a variety of succulent Freestone peaches just waiting to be enjoyed out in the summer fun, and they were just the right size and texture for a sweet Georgia peach cobbler.
We had headed out to the store to buy all the necessary ingredients when it dawned on us, why not make it in the cast iron skillet.
Now this cast iron skillet is not generations old. I sincerely wish it was. We bought it last year, but we have worked to season it and make it just right. I think my grandmother would be proud! We threw together some ingredients and made a delicious skillet cobbler with Freestone peaches from Mercier Orchards.
(This recipe was for a ten inch cast iron skillet.)
About 20 slices of peaches
1 cup of melted butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Add peaches to skillet and pour melted butter over them.
In a separate bowl, add the sugar, flour, and milk. Stir until you have formed the batter.
Pour batter into skillet over the peaches.
Bake for one hour.
