Strawberry Skillet Cake Recipe: This One-Bowl Cake Recipe Tastes Like Summer

Spring and summer are the seasons for fresh strawberries! There's nothing like biting into a sweet, juicy, fresh-picked strawberry – unless the berry is nestled in a skillet cake. If you're a strawberry lover, you need to add this strawberry skillet cake recipe to your dessert collection.

Grab your 9-inch cast iron skillet and let's bake a skillet cake! You'll need butter, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, all-purpose flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, sour cream and fresh strawberries for this cake recipe. All the ingredients are mixed together in one bowl (we love one-bowl recipes!) and then spread into a buttered cast iron skillet. Bake for about 40 minutes, let the cake cool and get ready to sink your teeth into summer.

Serve this easy strawberry skillet cake for dessert or a sweet snack. If you don't have fresh strawberries, try this cake with blackberries, blueberries or blackberries.

Can this be made with frozen cherries?
Donna John
I would think they would work. But be sure to pat them really dry with a paper towel to remove moisture before adding them. Please let us know how it turns out with cherries!
