On the grill, summer fruit bakes and bubbles beneath a blanket of biscuit.

Makes: 8 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 20 mins

  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 pounds nectarines (3 to 4), sliced
  • 1 cup mixed berries
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high. Grease a medium cast-iron skillet. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar and the baking powder. Mix in the buttermilk and butter until just combined.
  2. In another medium bowl, toss together the nectarines, berries, remaining 1 tablespoon flour and 2 tablespoons sugar.
  3. Spoon the fruit into the prepared skillet and dollop the dough over the fruit in 8 spoonfuls; sprinkle with sugar. Cover with foil and grill until the juices are bubbling and the top is golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving with a scoop of the ice cream.
  • Slice, twist and turn to easily remove nectarine pits.
  • Spoon the dough over the fruit in biscuit-size portions.
  • Cover the pan with foil to create an "oven" on the grill.
