Easy Peach Pecan Skillet Cake – A simple and comforting peach dessert with some surprising ingredients in the batter that make this cake divine!
I love skillet desserts! This Peach Pecan Skillet Cake is no exception. My favorite part is definitely the addition of cream cheese and sour cream in the batter! It makes the yummiest cake ever!
I grew up on peach cobbler. It was our dessert many nights. After making this the other day, I came to the realization that I don’t make this enough for my children. This is seriously something I have to change! It’s one of the easiest desserts to make and leaves the house smelling totally comforting and divine.
Growing up, we always had our cobblers with whipped cream, but after I met my husband, he introduced me to vanilla ice cream. Oh. my. word. That takes a warm dessert to a whole other level for sure! When I made this the other day, I took a picture with my phone and sent it to him with a text that said, “You may want to grab some ice cream…just sayin’.” And that he did!
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can find them here. You can certainly use a casserole dish as well. I recommend using a 9 x 9 or something close to that size. Fresh peaches can also be used 🙂
