Reading Progress:

I love cooking with bourbon, so I collaborated with my wife who’s the baker in our home to add some delicious bourbon to her already out of this world skillet peach cobbler. The results didn’t disappoint.

This homemade bourbon peach cobbler is out of bounds good. I’ve taken two approaches to choosing what bourbon to add to this cobbler. First, I’ve gone with something barrel proof. This will give your peach cobbler maximum bourbon flavor. Second, you can go with something lower proof that still has a ton of flavor. Think Maker’s Mark, Elijah Craig Small Batch — you get the picture. The cobbler will be less bourbon forward but there will be a depth of flavor that won’t go unnoticed.

Skillet Bourbon Peach Cobbler

Homemade Bourbon Peach Cobbler | Skillet Bourbon Peach Cobbler


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  •  cups fresh peach slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)
  • Splash bourbon to taste (maybe 2 tbsp)

Step 1

Melt butter in a cast iron skillet.

Step 2

In separate bowl, combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

Step 3

In stock pot, combine 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice. Add your bourbon and bring to boil over high heat, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Flambé the mixture immediately upon adding the bourbon.

Step 5

Pour peach mixture over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. The peach mixture will sink to the bottom and the flour mixture will rise and make a beautiful crust.

Step 6

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm with vanilla ice cream. Advanced: Make your own bourbon vanilla ice cream.
