Strawberry Cream Cheese Skillet Cake Dessert

An easy recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Skillet Cake that’s super moist and delicious. Fast enough to whip up for weeknight dinners or family gatherings.

It’s been over two months since I shared a recipe…so here I am with one that I hope you all will love. It’s so easy and uses basic pantry ingredients except for two things, the cream cheese and strawberries. I’m really happy with the way this strawberry cream cheese skillet cake  turned out and am especially proud that it didn’t sink in the middle. Ha!

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can make this batter into cookies or use a 9-inch square pan. I highly recommend a cast iron skillet though because I can’t guarantee the incredible texture without it. My skillet is the 10.25 inch from Lodge. It’s very inexpensive and comes already seasoned.

This is one of those recipes that you can adjust to suit your own taste. If you don’t like strawberries, any fruit will work. I think fresh blueberries, peaches or rhubarb would be especially tasty. Any combination of fruits would also be delicious.

Like most desserts that come out of a cast iron skillet, this one is delicious warm, straight from the oven. Serve it with ice cream or Cool Whip/whipping cream for an amazing dessert or snack. It’s also a dish that looks pretty enough to serve for a party but is quick enough to whip up for a weeknight meal. Watch the video and then the recipe follows.
