Peaches are at their peak and what better way to enjoy nature's bounty than in this super simple iron skillet crisp!
Here in Mooresville, you can get your pick of the juicest, ripest, peaches at Josh's Farmers Market. We've been getting all of our seasonal produce from Josh's for years and we love that our shop is right around the corner from the best open air market in the Lake Norman area!
Baking is not my strong suit, but even I can make an impressive dessert (and feel more like a real Southerner!) when just a few simple ingredients are tossed together and baked to a bubbly, crispy perfection in our Smithey Ironware Cast Iron Skillet.
Available in two sizes - 10" and 12", Smithey skillets are dream to bake (and sauté, pan sear, fry, roast, grill and campfire cook!) with. Unlike most mass-produced modern cast iron, Smithey cast iron is hand and machine-polished, producing a glassy satin-smooth surface that is naturally non-stick, right out of the box. Those delicate peaches and sweet streusel oat topping don't stand a chance of sticking to the bottom this skillet!
- 2 - 2 1/2 cups peaches (between 7-10), skin removed and cut into wedges
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp. unbleached all-purpose flour
- 3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
- Zest from 1 lemon
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup unbleached all-puprose flour
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar
- 4 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 Tbsp. kosher salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks), unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
- Toss filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Let sit for 30 minutes for flavors to combine.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare the topping: Whisk oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl to combine. Gradually add butter, using an electric mixer on low speed to combine. Once all the butter has been added, increase mixer speed to medium-high and beat until all dry ingredients are incorporated with the butter.
- Transfer filling ingredients to the Smithey. Evenly scatter topping over the peaches.
- Place on center rack in oven; bake 60-70 minutes. Peaches and their juices will be bubbling through the golden brown topping,
- Remove from oven; let cool slightly.
- Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. These crisp looks extra pretty on our vintage enamelware plates.
