It may only be the middle of August, but underneath that warm heat from the sun, there’s a fall chill in the air. It’s coming quickly! It’s almost time for hot chocolate, cozy sweaters, fires in the woodstoves, hearty stews, pumpkin-flavored everything… In preparation, I used the huckleberries I gathered on our last boat trip in an Old Fashioned Cast Iron Skillet Berry Cobbler. It was delicious!
I love mixed berry everything; crunches, smoothies, pies, muffins, and now cobblers! I only used one kind of berry in this batch, but it would be so easy to switch it up with a different berry, a mix of berries, or a mix of fruit. This recipe was quick, easy, and so yummy! Perfect for those chilly fall evenings.
Old Fashioned Cast Iron Skillet Berry Cobbler
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I used this kind.)
1 cup sugar
A pinch of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon “Fall” seasoning mix (Get my recipe HERE.) (This is optional, but it’s GOOD!)
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups huckleberries (or blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb, or a mix of all of them!)
If you’re using a cast iron skillet (10″) like I did (or if you need a cast iron skillet – check out these cast iron skillet reviews), place the skillet in the oven cold. Then preheat both the oven and the skillet to 350 degrees. Never put cold cast iron in the oven. This could cause it to crack. Read more about cast iron care HERE.
Mix the dry ingredients (flour through “Fall” mix) together.
Add milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Since I had preheated my cast iron in the oven and don’t own a microwave, I melted the stick of butter in the skillet and then poured it into the mix.
Pour the liquid mix into the skillet. Top with the berries. Don’t stir them in. The cake topping will rise to cover them.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until a lovely golden brown on top. (I should have let mine go a little longer, but I was impatient!)
Serve warm and with ice cream is always tasty!
