Strawberry Skillet Cake
Serves: 1 (9-inch) cake
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups sugar, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, halved
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and 1 cup sugar with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture, beating just until combined after each addition. Fold in strawberries. Spread batter in prepared skillet. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup sugar.
  4. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.



  1. Yuck! Soggy strawberries ruin the cake. Should have known the strawberries would become soggy. Won’t be making this again.

    • Doubling the ingredients would be too much batter for a 12-inch skillet. You could try 1 1/2 times the recipe, but please note the SCI team has not tested this.

  2. This was a great recipe, my husband and I both loved it. Moist and delicious. Thank you for sharing!!!
