Skillet cake is a classic Southern dessert that’s remarkably tasty and very easy-to-make. If you’re considering making a skillet cake, then try our recipe for banana pecan skillet cake. The recipe makes for three servings, and it features plenty of deliciously rich pecans, maple syrup, Greek yogurt and fresh bananas too. We suggest pairing this with some fresh coffee—you’ll find that the coffee helps to bring out the flavors of the pecans, making for a truly enjoyable dining experience.

If you’ve never tried skillet cake before, then you’re in for a fun surprise—it’s a really flavorful dessert, and we’re confident that you and your whole family will fall in love with our recipe. To get started making our skillet cake, you’ll need some Good Food Made Simple Steel-Cut oats, a tablespoon of sugar, a ripe banana, a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, a large egg, a ½ teaspoon of baking powder, a tablespoon of Cabot Butter, chopped pecans, maple syrup, Cabot Greek Yogurt and some sliced bananas. Preheat your oven to 375°F, and then combine the sugar, oats, cinnamon, banana, eggs and baking powder into a bowl. Then heat your butter in a cast iron or oven-approved skillet, and then add some pecans to the skillet. After you do that, transfer your batter to the heated skillet, coating the pecans evenly. Place the skillet with the mixture into the oven for 30 minutes. After a half hour has passed, remove your skillet and let it cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled, portion out the cake, and top each serving with some maple syrup, sliced bananas and a dollop of Cabot Greek Yogurt.
