Blueberry skillet cake is a dessert. I rarely feature desserts but this one deserves to be on Snack Girl.
Why? It is mostly blueberries!! You can use frozen blueberries or fresh (cut the baking time by 10 minutes with fresh).
I feature blueberries in my blueberry slump and a healthier recipe healthy banana blueberry oatmeal muffins. You can never eat too many blueberries.
In addition to having one of the healthiest ingredients around – this blueberry skillet cake is made in your blender.
I have a blender on my counter because I use it almost every day. Smoothies, soups, marinades, pancakes…. This appliance is a workhorse. But you don’t need one for the recipe – just use a whisk!
My other favorite for this recipe is a cast iron skillet. I have two because I frequently double recipes.
This pan can kill a snake and make a beautiful presentation of just about anything. You can buy one at Amazon cast iron pan.
You pour the batter over frozen blueberries and when it is done it is a cross between a pudding or flan and pancake. This skillet cake also reminds me of a fruit tart. You can decide what it is after you make it (please do and tell me how it went).
I love that you don’t have to make a crust (or buy one) and all the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. You can make this with other fruit you have around the house like strawberries, apples, pears, blackberries, etc.
You don’t need to make it in a cast-iron skillet if you don’t have one. Any pie pan will be fine.
Have you tried making a blueberry skillet cake or any other skillet cake? What did you think?
