Cast Iron Peach Cobbler

Erika Council | June 15, 2021

Growing up, Erika Council and her family celebrated Juneteenth with homemade pies. This recipe is inspired by the biscuit-like crust of those strawberry hand pies and the famous peaches of her home state, Georgia. Just like the strawberry pies of her youth, this peach cobbler promises to be juicy and extra sweet!

Cast Iron Peach Cobbler


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 5 peaches, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter


  1. Add the sliced peaches, ¾ cup of the sugar, and cinnamon to a saucepan and stir to combine. 

  2. Cook on medium heat for just a few minutes until the sugar is dissolved and helps to bring out juices from the peaches. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Melt butter in a 9 inch cast iron skillet or 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  5. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup of the sugar, and buttermilk. Pour mixture into the pan over butter. Spoon peaches and juice evenly around the pan.
  6. Bake at 350 in a preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the crust turns golden brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
