just wow. awesome.
we're not chocolate eaters, so desserts aren't a big deal in my house, but this recipe has me excited. cast iron skillet, whole wheat, packed with fruit, and serves a group. Usually i think of gooey, sugary, canned pie-filling-like crud with a soggy limp biscuit topping, when it comes to cobbler. Not here. I just keep adding fruit on top of the batter until i can't find any more spots to put it. I found you can go a little lighter on the sugar, and leave it in the oven for a few more moments until the edge gets crispy. It's also forgiving of slightly under ripe peaches. Everyone who's had it is always surprised it's whole wheat - a good thing in my book. Then they ask for the recipe.
I've made this 3 times so far this summer and i plan on making it as often as possible before the fruits season is over. I leave it on the counter, covered with a tea towl, and make eyes at it as i pass, just waiting until after dinner when i can pop it back into the oven to warm up. It keeps this way for a few days. Serve warm with a scoop of real vanilla ice cream. My partner, a man of few words, gave it the review of " but if i eat this piece there will only be three pieces left". Couldn't have said it better.
