Blueberry Skillet Cake

May 31, 2023   15 Comments

Blueberry skillet cake is a dessert. I rarely feature desserts but this one deserves to be on Snack Girl.

Blueberry Skillet Cake

Why? It is mostly blueberries!! You can use frozen blueberries or fresh (cut the baking time by 10 minutes with fresh).

I feature blueberries in my blueberry slump and a healthier recipe healthy banana blueberry oatmeal muffins. You can never eat too many blueberries.

In addition to having one of the healthiest ingredients around - this blueberry skillet cake is made in your blender.

I have a blender on my counter because I use it almost every day. Smoothies, soups, marinades, pancakes…. This appliance is a workhorse. But you don’t need one for the recipe - just use a whisk!

My other favorite for this recipe is a cast iron skillet. I have two because I frequently double recipes.

This pan can kill a snake and make a beautiful presentation of just about anything. You can buy one at Amazon cast iron pan.

You pour the batter over frozen blueberries and when it is done it is a cross between a pudding or flan and pancake. This skillet cake also reminds me of a fruit tart. You can decide what it is after you make it (please do and tell me how it went).

I love that you don’t have to make a crust (or buy one) and all the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. You can make this with other fruit you have around the house like strawberries, apples, pears, blackberries, etc.

You don’t need to make it in a cast-iron skillet if you don’t have one. Any pie pan will be fine.

Have you tried making a blueberry skillet cake or any other skillet cake? What did you think?

Instead of SUGAR can I Use STEVIA


Any recommendations if you use fresh blueberries, bake time, liquid?


@Debbie - shorten the baking time by 10 minutes for fresh blueberries. It will bake for 15 minutes. Thanks for your questions!

Do you have to use white whole wheat flour?


Hi Snack Girl - just wanted to say thank you for all the great recipe! They are really helping me transition to a healthier diet.

Wondering how much stevia to use instead of the sugar.

Thank you.

I love blueberries! This will be the next treat/snack I make. It looks so delicious!

Excellent recipe! I didn't have a cast iron pan, so I used a pie pan. Of which I only had an 8 inch. Next time I must use a larger one. I didn't quiet cook it long enough! But it was good!


Hi! This was deeeelicious as I knew it would be, but oh my, that recipe did not work for me! I took it out ‘lightly browned’ after 25 minutes...perhaps I was supposed to let it sit XX minutes before slicing? After 5 minutes, I attempted to slice, and still very runny inside. I baked it 12 more minutes. It was just done them, but still impossible to slice. Should I have waited 15,20 minutes? Oh please advise!

Looks sorta like a clafoutis!

As a southern girl I love any recipe that includes my iron skillet. I know it takes time to do all that you do and can I just say I appreciate you.

Can I use keto flour blend in place of the white wheat flour?

You’re a genius Snack Girl. This recipe is awesome! I’ve only had it a few days and have already made two pies. First was with frozen organic blueberries baked in a 9” glass pie plate in a regular oven. Cook time ended up being 37 minutes. Second was using fresh organic peeled peaches baked in a toaster oven in the 9” glass pie plate. Cook time was 20 minutes. I used gluten free flour both times. My husband absolutely loved both - of course he did!

I will try this recipe for sure. So glad I found this site. Thanks so much!

This was awesome. I used fresh berries but did not see to shorten baking time. It still came out perfect. Delicious!
