Cast Iron Cobblers

Cast Iron Cobblers

The past few months I’ve been on a cobbler making spree. It started with a dinner party, then the 4th of July, then my birthday… it seemed like every few days I was filling up my skillets with fruit and oats. It’s the perfect thing about cobblers- one basic recipe can encompass so many colors and textures. Blueberries, strawberries, peaches, cherries, blackberries- all you need is a fresh fruit and a topping mixture and before you know it you have a simple, and delicious, dessert.

Cast Iron Cobbler

for a medium size cast iron pan

1 pint fresh fruit

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 cup steel cut oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 stick butter

Dash of salt

1 tsp cinnamon

Clean and slice (for non-berries) fruit and pack evenly into skillet. Squeeze lemon juice over the fruit. Melt butter in a bowl. Mix butter, oats, sugar, salt, and cinnamon together and pack on top of the fruit.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Or cook on a medium heat grill (over indirect heat) for 25 minutes.

    I just made this! I had all the ingredients and it was so simple and easy. This is going to become a staple for me because i usually have oats. Thank you!

    I just have a question. When cooking with a cast iron skillet, do you heat the skillet and “grease” it before you put the fruit in? Or do you just use the skillet cold?

    I asked this question before, but don’t know where to find the answer. Do you heat up the cast iron in the oven before you put all the ingredients in it?

      Hi Tana! Sorry I missed your comment, we’ve been traveling for the holidays and it slipped through the cracks. You don’t pre-heat the skillet, you put the cobbler together cold!
