Peach Buckle

Instead of using a cast-iron skillet, you can make the buckle in a 9-inch square baking pan or in a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Serve straight from the pan.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 60 mins
  • servings: 8




  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for skillet
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds peaches, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (4 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, 9-inch square baking pan, or 2-quart shallow baking dish. In a large bowl, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla; beat to combine.

  2. Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat until incorporated. Fold in peaches.

  3. Step 3

    Spread batter in prepared skillet. In a small bowl, mix together remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and almonds. Sprinkle mixture over top; bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and topping is golden, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes before serving.

    This recipe actually appears on page 38 of the July/August 2004 issue, not the November 2003 issue as noted. It's excellent, as well as easy to make.

    A very tasty and fruity dessert. Not sure how I would describe the cake portion of this, a bit denser than you might think. I think mine was closer to a bread pudding with all the fruit adding so much moisture. The topping was a wonderful contrast.

    This recipe is not in the November 2003 issue of Everyday Food, as is indicated above.

    I just pulled this out of the oven. It is fabulous. The consistency is somewhere between cake and custard and the flavor of the peaches really shines through. Thanks for the recipe!

    Can't see the ingredient list - the ad is in the way!

    Wonderful dessert. It reminded me of bread pudding. I did half the recipe so maybe that was why. I only had peaches and it turned out great. It was very good.

    Made this several times and it's always a hit. Not too sweet and very moist.
    a nice end to a good meal.

    Wow!. This was really great. I added 1/2 c. frozen blackberries along with the peaches (because I didn't have as many peaches as I had thought), but I'm sure the peaches alone would have been fantastic.
