Apricot-Almond Cobbler


    • 1/2 cup whole raw almonds
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • Salt
    • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
    • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature
    • 1 large egg, room temperature
    • 2 tablespoons almond-flavored liqueur, such as Amaretto
    • 1 1/2 pounds apricots, halved lengthwise, pitted, and cut into 3/4-inch-thick wedges
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


                          1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet in oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Finely grind almonds in a food processor; transfer to a medium bowl. Whisk in flour, 3/4 cup sugar, the baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the nutmeg; set aside.
                          2. Brush a 10-inch cast iron skillet with 2 tablespoons butter. Whisk together remaining 4 tablespoons butter, the milk, egg, and liqueur in a medium bowl. Stir butter mixture into flour mixture. Spread batter evenly into buttered skillet.
                          3. Stir together apricots, remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, a pinch of salt, and the lemon juice in a medium bowl. Spread apricot mixture evenly over batter. Bake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool in skillet on a wire rack 1 hour before serving.
