Cast Iron Peach Cobbler made with Homemade Canned Peaches
Last summer while we were touring the Farmers Market in Camrose, we noticed that peaches were in season (from the BC fruit stand). Greyson loves peaches and asked if we could get some. I had a sudden inspiration to can peaches just like my Mom used to do when I was a kid. I imagined all the delicious peaches we could eat in the winter, when good fruit is hard to come by.
Now that it's January, I am so thankful that my summer self followed this whim and canned up a couple of cases of peaches! Opening a jar of peaches feels like opening a jar of summer sunshine!
Eating the canned peaches on their own is delightful, but using them to create a cast iron peach cobbler is AMAZING!
Peach Cobbler Recipe
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt & nutmeg
- 1 jar of peaches, drained & cut into pieces (1 litre/quart jar)
Grab a 10 inch cast iron pan. Preheat the oven to 350F.
Melt butter. In a medium bowl, mix butter & sugar to combine. Beat in egg & vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and pinch of salt & nutmeg. Stir to combine.
Spoon batter into the cast iron pan and spread out evenly.
Spoon peaches on top of the batter.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the cobbler comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 to 20 minutes before enjoying!
