By now we hope you know about the miracle of a skillet dinner—everything cooks together in one sizzling pan, which means more time eating and less time doing dishes. Turns out, the same principle applies to dessert. You get all the good stuff (a warm, gooey dessert and a house that smells like heaven) without any of the hassle. Here are 12 of our favorite cast iron skillet desserts.
20 Easy Cast Iron Skillet Desserts, Because You Love Baking but Hate Cleaning
10. Upside Down Caramelized Banana Bread Skillet Cake
What could possibly be better than banana bread? Banana bread topped with sticky sweet, cinnamon-scented bananas, of course.
11. Chocolate Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie
We admit it: We’re powerless to resist any chocolate-peanut butter combination that crosses our path. And this epic cookie is no exception (it actually has mini peanut butter cups instead of chocolate chips, and melted peanut butter drizzled on top).
12. Simple Skillet S’mores Cookie
We understand that there are many virtues to camping (nature, fresh air, etc.), but we’re generally mostly in it for the s’mores. This cookie gives us all the melted chocolate and toasted marshmallow goodness we crave, without any of the dirt or bugs.
