Interesting name, right? The original recipe is from Joy the Baker and it included adding a banana. I am finding that when I bake with banana, it doesn't last very long...well, we can't eat it fast enough to not have it go bad. Sooooooooooooo, I dropped the banana from the recipe and viola, 2 days later, it's still freakishly good.
Oh!!! And I added a secret ingredient that makes everything, in my eyes, better. Caramel. I added little caramel balls and every bite was a little extra gooey. Love.
I didn't bake it in a cast iron skillet. I have a nice 8 x 8 pan that has a cover on it, so it's easier to bake and store. It tastes like a big chocolate chip cookie with some gooey caramel in it. That makes me happy. I'm not sure why it's called a cake....it's more cookie-like....but call it whatever you'd like, just try it!
