You know that Cast Iron Skillets are all the rage! They are a perfect way to make one pan meals – they are easy to keep clean and give an even and gorgeous brown to meats and veggies. And they are also great for desserts!
They are ideal for frying and baking because the thick iron distributes heat well. They can work from stovetop to oven and back again.

7. Cast Iron Skillet Banana Bread by Two Pink Peonies
Banana breads are notorious for cooking unevenly. Here’s an easy way to get the perfect Banana Bread every time and get one with a perfect cast iron flavor that’s so rich and delicious. You can even use this Banana Bread Recipe (my grandma’s recipe) in a Cast Iron Skillet.
8. Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie by House of Nash Eats
House of Nash Eats recommends using mini cast iron pans to make these delicious cookies! Then make brown butter which is a process of gently heating butter before you use it in a recipe to give it a nutty, rich flavor that gives depth to desserts like these. Here’s a great brown butter recipe to follow. I would also recommend adding a sprinkle of sea salt to the top!
9. Triple Berry Tea Cobbler by Will Cook for Smiles
To make this tea cake, steep black tea to infuse in the cake batter. When making a tea cake a lot of people recommend making your tea twice as strong to get that black tea flavor. Whether you choose to double steep or just make a regular brew, this Triple Berry Tea Cobbler has a gorgeous flavor that’s different than other cobblers.
10. Brown Sugar Peach Cobbler by I Heart Eating
A brown sugar crust will give this cobbler just a bit of extra crunch and a deeper flavor too. It’s the perfect way to celebrate summer! This recipe calls for bourbon which pairs so well with the cinnamon sugar dusted on top of the batter. Cooking alcohol will give you a boozy flavor but remove the buzz that alcohol gives. You can always leave the bourbon out of the recipe if you prefer.
11. Caramelized Bananas by Keep Calm and Eat Ice Cream
These caramelized bananas are a great alternative to bananas foster and are the perfect way to dress up a bowl of ice cream – especially if it’s homemade. This is a stovetop recipe that doesn’t involve alcohol like bananas foster usually does. It’s gorgeous, easy, and delicious!
12. S’more Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookies by Delicious Table
These S’more chocolate chip skillet cookies, or pizookies, include milk chocolate chunks, semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini peanut butter cups, graham cracker shards, and toasted and melted marshmallows! These cookies are decadent, gooey, and irresistible. This is another recipe that would be perfect for mini cast iron skillets to make personal sized pizookies!
13. Upside Apple Cake Skillet by Pass the Sushi
