Strawberry Orange Skillet Cake

Skillet cakes have been around for a long time. The original skillet cake was a pineapple upside down cake cooked in a cast iron skillet on the stove. Present day skillet cakes are baked in the oven, in the same seasoned cast iron skillets. Any version of skillet cake you try will be warm, comforting and sweetly caramelized in a way that can only be achieved with a cast iron skillet. The Protein Essentials test kitchen recipe is a healthier, less sweet version with a collagen protein boost. Beauty from within skillet cake!
