Peach Blackberry Skillet Cake

Author - Gena Hamshaw
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Yields: 8 servings


  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour (150 g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 cup soy, oat, almond, or cashew milk
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon melted vegan butter or avocado oil (divided)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (substitute non-dairy yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 lb fresh or frozen peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into thin slices
  • 12 oz fresh or frozen blackberries (about 1 pint, or 2 heaping cups)


  • Place a 10, 11, or 12-inch cast iron skillet on a center rack in the oven. Preheat your oven to 350F. Once the oven is adequately heated, allow the cast iron to remain in there for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center. Add the milk, 1/4 cup melted butter or oil, applesauce, sugar, and vanilla. Mix until you have an even batter—some small lumps are OK.
  • Remove the hot skillet from the oven very carefully, using oven mitts. Add the remaining tablespoon butter or oil to the pan and swirl it around to coat. Place the peaches and blackberries into the hot skillet and immediately pour the batter over them. Transfer the skillet back to the oven.
  • Bake the cake for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown on top. Let cool for at least an hour before cutting into wedges and serving. Enjoy!
