Iron skillet cake is so easy to make and you can use just about any fruit you have on hand.  I used blueberries on this cake and I had a peach I needed to get rid of so put it on the cake with the blueberries.  You could use strawberries, blackberries, peaches, raspberries or whatever you like.  This iron skillet cake is a basic cake recipe with just the fruit added on top.  You could make this cake in a 9 x 12 baking dish, too. It doesn’t have to be in an iron skillet.  I like this recipe because you can throw it together so easily when you need a fast dessert.  This cake is great with coffee or as a dessert with ice cream or whipped cream on top.  Be sure and check out our recipe for Iron Skillet Sweet Potato Cobbler.

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup buttermilk

1 1/4 cups blueberries

1 large fresh peach, peeled and sliced

Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla with mixer.  Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.  Add to creamed mixture along with buttermilk and mix until all ingredients are combined.  Spray a 10 inch iron skillet with cooking spray.  Spread batter in skillet and put fruit on top.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 45 minutes until center tests done.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!
