I'm going to miss the August peaches. I'll miss their sweet perfume whenever I walk by the fruit stand and I'll miss all the peachy treats I've made with them the past few weeks. But since they're approaching the season's last hurrah, I decided to update a southern classic dish and take it on a little trip around the world.

Fruit cobblers come in different forms. Sometimes the fruit is topped with biscuits and sometimes it's more of a pancake-like batter. My preference for the latter is mostly because it's so easy to make but either way, you have sweet fruit baked with sweet dough and that's always a good thing.

Peach cobblers tend to be simple with just a dash of cinnamon but I replaced that with cardamom for a great flavor and aroma. A scoop of ice cream on top is also typical but the cool, honey sweetened yogurt went so perfectly with the warm cobbler that I may serve all pies that way from now on. Enjoy!


  • Fruit Layer:
  • 3 large peaches
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • Pinch of salt
  • Batter:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup pistachios (chopped)
  • 1 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

  3. If you'd like to peel the peaches (optional), bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the peaches in the boiling water for exactly 60 seconds, remove and let cool enough to handle. The peach skin will come off easily in your hands or with a paring knife.

  4. Remove the pits and slice the peaches and layer evenly into 4 small cast-iron skillets (approximately 5 inches). Or you can use one large skillet if you prefer. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cardamom, and salt and sprinkle evenly over the peaches.

  5. To make the batter, add the sugar and melted butter to a large bowl and whisk vigorously until the sugar is dissolved. Whisk in the vanilla and milk.

  6. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet until you have a smooth and somewhat thick batter.

  7. Pour the batter evenly over the peaches, place the pans on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 40 minutes until the batter turns slightly light golden brown. Be careful not to over-bake.

Make the Topping:

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Whisk the honey into the yogurt and drizzle evenly over the warm cobblers.

  3. Sprinkle on the chopped pistachios and serve warm. Enjoy!
