Easy Iron Skillet Cake - The Southern Lady CooksIron 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 13 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.
