Easy Stovetop Peach Cobbler
June 09, 2008

I enjoyed testing this recipe for an upcoming camping trip but felt a few changes were in order. I chose peaches in heavy syrup and cut the slices in half. I also used vanilla cake mix over yellow because something about vanilla ice cream with cobbler that I love. Peach, cinnamon, and vanilla. Since we won't be able have ice cream I thought this was the way to do it. I wasn't disappointed. I also used butter over margarine because I don't like the flavor of margarine. I used 1.5 times the recipe for my large cast iron skillet (buttered well to prevent sticking) and made this recipe on my coleman stove. My universal lid didn't fit very tightly but this still came out well. I kept it on a med-high flame (my stove is old and finicky) for about 20 minutes, peeking after the first 10. The consistency of the peaches was nice, some were even slightly caramelized toward the center of the skillet. The topping was moist but did have some characteristing "crumbs" that made the dish look rather attractive for its simplicity. Very, very sweet, but when you're camping you can afford the rich recipe. Only 4 stars because, frankly, if I was spending a summer night at home I'd make fresh peach cobbler the old fashioned way. That said I've done a lot of camp cooking and this is the best dessert I've had to date. I can't wait to serve this to our group!
