Practicing Cast Iron Cobblers

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

I've been trying different cobbler recipes and ended up liking a very common and simple recipe the best.

 

1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
3 tsp baking powder
1qt fruit

Preheat oven to 350.  

Use a 10 1/2" cast iron skillet

Melt butter add milk and dry ingredients mix well.

Pour batter into greased and preheated skillet add fruit distributing around the pan but do not stir.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown @ 350.

 

Note, if the fruit has a lot of juice you can mix 1-2 Tbs of cornstarch directly to the juice and fruit before adding to the batter. The extra juice will have a pudding like consistency when the cobbler cools.

 

Another note, rinse the frozen ice crystals from frozen fruit before using. I had a very blue blueberry cobbler by not rinsing.

 

 

Thanks for looking!

I do like the flavor. I made a peach cobbler that had 4 cans of peaches that I thickened with corn starch. When it was still warm and I thought it was a flop but when it was refrigerated it turned out to be the best cobbler I made.

Thanks, no box mix but really not much harder than a box. I've been using anything for fruit, frozen, canned, pie filling.

That looks very good.  Have you tried a Dump Cake?  Very simple. 

 

1 -  20 oz. can of pie filling, cherry, blue berry, pineapple or one of your choice

1  - box of cake mix

1 - stick of unsalted butter

whipped cream for garnish

 

Preheat oven to 350° or 15 briquettes on bottom, 10 on top of Dutch oven.  Place pie filling in bottom of DO and even out.  Pour cake mix on top and carefully spread, do not mix in.  Place sliced butter on top of cake mix.  Cover and bake for approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour or until it is browned and bubbling. Scoop out with large spoon and top with whipped cream.

 

Enjoy,

 

Tom

Thanks Tom! I tried a dump cake over the fire one time after a few beers and no idea what temp the Dutch oven was at. I always wanted to try again under better circumstances.

Blame it on being to busy swatting skeeters.

This is not the actual picture of when I tried the dump cake but it was in similar fashion. These chickens were tight against the top cover or they would have been perfect. I posted it on a FB site and it drove a few of the 6 3/4 briquette guys crazy. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

Looks like crispy skin chicken to me.  Love the ingenuity also.  Good job.
