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)
- 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.
- Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Stir in the milk and vanilla.
- 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.
- 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!
