Blueberry Skillet Coffee Cake Made In An Iron Skillet

I love my iron skillets; they are so versatile, and they last forever. My grandmother gave me her set when I got married. She didn’t often do much cooking anymore. These skillets are such a treasure and I often think of her as I’m using them. I’ve been doing a lot more baking in my skillets lately. We love how crispy everything gets on the bottom and around the edges.

This skillet coffee cake has been a recent favorite. It’s so easy to throw together for a quick breakfast or for when we like to cook breakfast for supper. Without a leavening agent, it is a very dense cake, that makes it perfect to pair with a hot drink such as coffee, tea, or hot chocolate or even a glass of cold milk.
