Skillet-Baked Peach and Cherry Cobbler

peach cherry cobbler

I think it’s too hot for cobblers, but I couldn’t resist.

Honestly, I had no other choice. Or I had too many choices, but I really liked this one the best.

As always, at the farmer’s market I bought too many nectarines, peaches, and cherries. We inhaled the nectarines and most of the cherries. For whatever reason, the peaches sat there. Untouched. Sorry boys.

When I finally went to grab one and bit into it, the juices that started to run down my arms reminded me of a warm cobbler. With a scoop of ice cream, of course.

Um… actually, I prefer topping it with whipped cream.

Then my mind kept on going and going until I reached for the skillet and a bag of hazelnuts…

I had a craving for Nutella and that’s how the hazelnuts made it to my hands. I even thought about Nutellaizing this dessert, but then I knew I was going too far. I don’t like messing with the classics too much.

I made a Nutella Pizza instead ‘cause that’s not messing with a classic (?).

    I brought this to a friend’s house who has a gluten sensitivity. This was the first time I’ve ever made a gluten free dessert. I used Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Mix and swapped out pecans for hazelnuts because our store didn’t have hazelnuts, anyway, it was awesome.
    Also, I upped the fruit to 3.5 cups of peaches and 1.5 cups of cherries. Then I spread the crust out very thin more like pie crust–I pulled it um the sides of my skillet. When it was cut, it came out almost like pie. It was awesome. Flavor and texture was great. Served warm with vanilla ice cream. YUM! Would love to make it again with hazelnuts if I can find them.

    I’ve never made cobbler in a skillet before but it has to be the best way to bake anything in summer and totally beats turning on the oven.

    I always buy way too much stuff at the farmers’ market. I get so excited to see so much fresh local produce. Peaches are almost in season here. I can’t wait to bite into them and enjoy it the way you described. I’ll pay the price of a little extra heat in the kitchen for this yummy treat.

    I LOVE anything cooked in a skillet, and this looks especially delicious – peaches and cherries is a combo I, for some reason, have never tried! Soon to be remedied :) Thanks for sharing!

    That looks incredibly good! Love the hazelnuts in the crust! And I love cooking and baking in my cast iron skillet but I never thought I could make a cobbler in it! Awesome! I need to do that soon :D

    The best part of summer is having all these soft fruits available to make as desserts and eat with ice cream. This is a lovely no fuss recipe. Charming photos.

    Another delicious dessert Kate! I haven’t peaches this year yet, but I can’t wait to try… I wish I can make a cobbler with peaches and cherries… must be so delicious with ice cream on top… sigh… do you eat dessert every day? Lately I’m worrying about my weight even though I’m NOT making dessert at all (minus ice cream, but I’m in control)….imagine when I make this cobbler. In 30 minutes entire thing could disappear in my tummy…. this looks that good!

    This looks great Kate! I don’t think there’s ever a bad time for cobbler of any sort – may have to make an apple one this week because we got a bunch in our CSA =)

    MN is too cold for stone fruits so I have to settle for the aroma in the grocery store (heady but not the same). I buy 2-4 every day – because they do need to be eaten right away. But maybe I’ll let today’s peaches sit… and tomorrow enjoy a cobbler! Hazelnuts are always a good idea.

    What a fabulous cobbler….the addition of cherries just kicks it up a notch :) I’d like mine with ice cream, but I would never refuse a bowlful with a dollop of whipped cream!

  11. says

    Is it ever really too hot for cobbler? LOL. I love this recipe. And I love that it’s assembled and baked in a skillet. That’s a fun little twist! Fantastic!!!! I’ll take mine with vanilla ice cream. ;)

    I love cobblers. I always want to say it’s too hot for them too, and cave every time. Peach and cherry is such a fantastic fruit combination! I’ve always topped mine with vanilla ice cream….will definitely have to try your whipped cream trick :)

    I love peach cobbler and always make it during the summer. I also will make blueberry cobbler with the 40 pounds of blueberries I pick each summer. The only bad thing…..I EAT THE WHOLE THING BY MYSELF…..IN 1 1/2 DAYS……..

    Looks so yummy. And my two fave fruits in it. Must try this one out. If it’s ever cool enough here to turn on the oven. I wonder if it could be done on the grill.

  15. says

    Um yes please! This kind of treat get’s me in trouble. Midnight munchies roll around & all I break out is a spoon & by morning it’s gone! lol Buzzzz

    Looks like a delicious recipe! The fresh fruits from the farmers market must of added a special touch to the cobblers! =]
