Brown butter and fruit skillet cobbler

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I had noticed this beautiful peach cobbler, and thought how lovely and delicious that looked. The only problem? No peaches in the fruit basket and no cast iron skillet in this house. Tomorrow September 4th, is my Honey's birthday and I wanted to get something baked while he was at work today, and have it just out of the oven when he got home. How about this browned butter and fruit cobbler, inspired by that lovely peach one? Sounds good to me, personally I love plums, and it is a good thing too, because that is what was in the fruit basket.  

This cobbler is perfect for any and all fruit, currently in season.

Browned butter and fruit skillet cobbler
adapted from Sage Trifle
350 degree oven

1 stick butter

10-12 large black plums OR 6 c berries OR 8 c peaches
1 c sugar
generous t spice of choice (cinnamon, coriander, cardamom)

1 1/2 c flour
1 c sugar
1T baking powder
1/1/3 c milk

1/2 - 3/4 c sliced almonds

In large flat bottom pan, melt butter on medium low heat, carefully let brown until golden, reducing heat if necessary. Turn off heat and let sit while preparing fruit and cobbler batter.

Wash and pit plums, cut each plum into thin slices, toss with the sugar and cardamom in a medium size bowl. Let set while preparing cobbler batter.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Whisk to combine, beat in milk until batter is smooth.

To assemble cobbler, pour batter over browned butter.

Spoon fruit onto the surface (it may sink, that is OK) in an even pattern, leaving about 1 1/2 inch rim with no fruit.


Sprinkle with the sliced almonds around the rim of the pan, over the batter. 

Bake 45 - 55 minutes, or until tests done in your oven. The almonds will be golden, the fruit bubbling and the cobbler will test done. 
Let cool, serves 8 - 12 and offer a small scoop of vanilla ice cream along side.

  1. Melynda, your cobbler looks delicious! I meant to mention in my post that it can be made with any fruit, but forgot. (Pears are really good). I have even made it with frozen or canned fruit in the winter. I really love the addition of the sliced almonds. I like the "bready stuff" too.

  2. I enjoy any kind of cobbler, but peach is my favorite. Wish I had a big dish of yours. It looks very tasty.
