Hopefully you all caught this earlier in the week on my Instagram feed, if not go follow me now (@the_curvysta_haven). I had a craving for cake and even bigger need to keep cooking Monday night, my day off. Since I recently purchased my wonderful cast iron skillet I had to look up new recipes to use in my skillet.
After doing a Google search I came across this “simple skillet cake” recipe and discovered I had everything for it. I added dried cranberries to add some color and a pop, but you could add anything. Make it your own!
I was so excited because I got to use my KitchenAid stand mixer and my cast iron skillet in one swoop. And, it turned out great! I’m savoring a bit of it every day and will certainly be making it again.
Tip: Make sure you oil your skillet enough on the bottom so it will come out better than mine.
