Skillet Fruit Cobbler


fruit cobbler

If you don’t already have a cast-iron skillet, I HIGHLY recommend you get one. There are endless possibilities for what you can use it for: pot pies, roasted vegetables, skillet cookies. The list goes on and on, but my absolute favorite thing to make in a cast-iron skillet is fruit cobbler. Warm, crispy-edged, with fruit bubbling in the center – skillet cobbler is comfort food at its finest. This is for your cheat days. Treat yourself once in a while so you won’t break your healthy diet! Try it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert, or eat it plain for an insanely good breakfast.


  • 3 TBS unsalted butter
  • 3 TBS coconut oil
  • 1 C flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ C sugar
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 C fruit of choice (I used blueberries)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter and coconut oil in a 12 inch cast-iron skillet in the prepared oven, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Stir in the milk and vanilla.
  3. Add the melted butter/oil to the batter and pour into the hot skillet. Spoon fruit evenly over the batter, filling every corner of the pan.
  4. Bake until the batter is cooked through and golden brown, about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool for at least 15 minutes on a wire rack. Enjoy!
