- Preheat oven to 450F. Place cast iron skillet in oven to preheat.
- To make compote, place a medium saucepan over high heat. Combine peaches, raspberries, sugar and coconut water in pan. Bring to boil, then lower to simmer. Cook for 10 minutes, until all fruit is soft.
- Add raisins and dried apricots and cook for about 5 minutes, until fruit is rehydrated. Remove from heat and stir in lemon zest.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs thoroughly, about 2 minutes. Add milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and whisk into the eggs. The batter should be thin.
- Carefully remove the hot skillet from oven and add butter. Swirl skillet so the butter coats entire bottom. Quickly pour batter into skillet.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and puffy.
- Once baked, top with compote to serve.
