Enjoy the taste of summer with these cute, yummy 6″ mini peach cobbler skillets a la mode! Recipe makes makes 6 servings (2 per skillet).
Do you enjoy peach cobbler? We really do! I make at least ONE peach cobbler every single summer, using the fresh local peaches we pick at U-Pick farms, the Farmer’s Market or the store. It’s a dessert I always look forward to serving. YUM.
Today I want to share a recipe for these cute little mini peach cobbler skillets! I adapted this recipe from a peach cobbler recipe I made last summer. You will need three 6″ mini cast iron skillets (you can get them online fairly cheaply), and they are a fun way to serve and share this treat with a spouse, significant other, family or friends.
Each skillet will yield two servings, but if you are feeling EXTRA hungry (ha ha), each person (3 total) can have their own! Served with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream, these mini peach cobbler skillets will be a huge hit! The recipe is fairly simple, too. Honestly the hardest thing is simply peeling and slicing the peaches! Here’s how to make this delicious dessert.

Prepare The Peach Cobbler Filling
For this recipe we use fresh peaches. You can use 3-4 LARGE peaches or about 6 medium sized peaches. We were given some delicious peaches by some of our neighbors, so I used several to make this dessert. Aren’t they gorgeous?
To make the peach cobbler filling, peel, cut in half, and remove the pit from the peaches. Slice the peaches into about 1″ slices, and place them in a large saucepan. Add fresh lemon juice, ½ cup granulated sugar, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. Stir the peaches gently until all ingredients are combined.
Bring the peach mixture to a boil, on medium-high heat, stirring constantly while it cooks. When it begins boiling, remove the pan from the heat, set aside, and let it cool down on the counter.
Make The Batter
While the peaches are cooling down, you can make the batter for the Mini Peach Cobbler Skillets. In a large mixing bowl, sift flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour in the milk, and stir only until the ingredients are fully combined (don’t overmix). Set the batter aside.
Preparing The Mini Peach Cobbler Skillets
Okay… now it’s time to fill the skillets. Melt the butter and then divide it evenly between three 6″ mini cast iron skillets. Brush or swirl it to cover bottom of skillet. Next you will need to pour in the batter (dividing it evenly between the three skillets). DO NOT STIR THE BATTER INTO THE MELTED BUTTER! It should just sit on top of the melted butter!
The final step is to add the peach filling, dividing it evenly between the three skillets. DO NOT STIR THE PEACHES INTO THE BATTER! They should just sit on top of the batter. As the mini cobblers bake, the batter will rise up and cover a good part of the peaches.
Baking the Mini Peach Cobbler Skillets
Now the mini peach cobbler skillets are ready to bake! Place the skillets (uncovered) on the middle rack in a preheated 375°F. oven. Bake the mini peach cobbler skillets for 35-40 minutes. Once done, the top of the cobblers should be golden brown and the peach filling should be hot and bubbly.
Carefully remove the skillets from the oven. Transfer the skillets to a wire rack and let them cool slightly for 5-10 minutes, before serving.
Time To EAT!
Each skillet is fairly small, but is enough for two servings per skillet, unless you just want to gobble the whole thing up (your choice). My hubby likes to eat half of his, then save the other half for the next day!
To serve, simply top each of the mini peach cobbler skillets with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Grab a spoon and dig in… they are DELICIOUS! By the way… if you want to freeze them, let them completely cool, then wrap the skillets very well in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. When ready to enjoy later, simply thaw completely and re-warm.
I hope you enjoy these mini peach cobbler skillets! We love them, and they are a delicious dessert, especially when presented/served in cute little cast iron skillets! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you will come back soon for more family friendly recipes. Have a great day!
