We shared a couple recipes for cast iron skillet desserts recently, so we wanted to make sure we weren’t neglecting something important: the rest of the meal! Cooking the perfect holiday dinner can certainly be a challenge, but with a little help from your trusty Stargazer Cast Iron skillets and these easy-to-follow recipes, you can make your next holiday (or anytime) dinner a big hit.
Raise your hand if you could go for a good dessert right about now. 🙋 Excellent! While your first instinct may not be to reach for your cast iron skillet, we’re here to shed some more light on an underappreciated group of dishes: cast iron skillet desserts.
As we mentioned in the previous cast iron skillet dessert post we shared, one of best things about cast iron is its versatility. You can perfectly sear your pork chops in your Stargazer skillet one day, and then bake a memorable skillet carrot cake in it the next.
And speaking of skillet carrot cake (see what we did there?), we just so happen to have an amazing recipe for this very dish! This carrot cake will melt in your mouth with just the right amount of sweetness. One bite of this cake, and your guests will think you’ve been secretly apprenticing for the Cake Boss.
You want to know the only thing better than dessert? A cast iron skillet dessert, of course! Oh, and one made in a Stargazer skillet, to be specific. Dessert may not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear cast iron, but remember: your cast iron skillet can do so much more than just perfectly sear a steak!
So what makes the best cast iron skillet dessert? It has to be something warm, gooey, and sweet, for sure, but since you’re baking it the oven, you want some texture and crunch as well. We think we’ve come up with the answer here. Behold, our Raspberry Rhubarb Crumble.
Happy Cinco de Mayo 2018! Before we get into the recipe, time for a quick nerdy fact: Did you know that Cinco de Mayo is celebrated to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862? If that fact helps you win Final Jeopardy one day, don’t forget Stargazer’s cut of the winnings!
Most places will throw out their best recipes for nachos, fajitas or enchiladas, but we think we’ve come up with a unique and healthy dish that will go great with your margarita or cerveza.
