4. Bake a Cake in a Cast-Iron Skillet

I know a cake pan doesn’t take up much cupboard space, but why own one when you can make cake in a cast-iron skillet? My favorite cast-iron skillet dessert recipe is actually a cobbler—kind of a cross between a cake and a pie, filled with plenty of fruit. I love my cast-iron skillet for this recipe because the dark, hot iron creates a delightfully crispy edge around the cake that a plain old cake pan couldn’t do. Plus, the skillet’s wide circumference makes it easy to shove plenty of fruit—such as peaches and blueberries—into the cake.
