Nothing is more delicious for dessert than this Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top. I love simple dessert recipes, and this one is a great choice for any weeknight dessert, or neighborhood BBQ this summer. Everyone loves warm fruit with a sweet crust covered in ice cream, and this recipe makes that easy to accomplish.
Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
Cast iron skillet recipes are always a favorite. There is just something so fun about cooking in a classic cast iron skillet, especially if you are out camping or doing a fun outdoor BBQ event with friends. The kids love anything they get to put our favorite Blue Bell ice cream on, and, of course, this wins!
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup of self rising flour
1 cup of sugar
4 peaches sliced with pits removed
16 oz. of cream cheese
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
You will start your easy peach cobbler recipe by getting your peaches ready. Fresh summer peaches are the tastiest, but if you don’t have any in your area, you can always grab a bag of frozen peaches for this dessert. I don’t recommend using canned peaches as the result isn’t very tasty.
Next you will blend together your powdered sugar and cream cheese. You want this to be smooth, so you will likely want to do this in a high quality blender like a Ninja, or with a food processor or hand mixer. Set that aside and move on to melting the butter in your skillet. You can do this on the stove top then simply set aside, or could melt the butter in a microwave and pour into the skillet. I prefer the former so I have one less dish to wash!
Grab a large bowl to mix your flour, milk and sugar together. Pour this into the skillet then top with part of the peaches. I suggest using about 3/4 of the peaches on top of the batter. Next you will pour your cream cheese mixture on top of those peaches and finally top with remaining peaches.
Pop this into the oven (or over an open flame if out camping), and cook for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
