One of my friends told me the other day that I might be obsessed with my cast iron skillet. [I’m looking at you Kiki Mojo.] And you know what, I think I am. If given the option of my cast iron or my regular fry fan, I’ll pick the cast iron every time. [Unless its dirty and I’m hungry, because let’s keep it real, I don’t want to wash dishes when I’m hungry.] I could list the reasons I love it or I could just share delicious recipes like this easy skillet blondie. Because if you can make desserts in a cast iron skillet, then what more do you need?!
The answer is nothing. You don’t need anything more then a dessert baked in a skillet. A side of homemade ice cream maybe, but nothing besides that. Ok, maybe a little chocolate sauce on top of it all. But seriously. Nothing more then that!
I have made blondies [and brownies] before, but this was the first time making them in my beloved skillet. I was slightly nervous when I put it in the oven for fear that it would stick to the bottom on the pan. That would ruin a perfectly good blondie and skillet in one recipe.
I made sure to coat the bottom of the skillet with butter to help reduce any stuck on blondie mishaps. [Even though I would have scrapped it out and eaten it either way. Just keepin it real again.] The butter also helped to crisp the bottom and sides of the blondie but kept the top soft and chewy. [It’s ok if you drooled a bit. I totally understand.]
Drizzle a little chocolate sauce and add a scoop of ice cream and you are all set. And then sit back relax and think of how much you love your cast iron skillet for making you such a delicious treat.
