Cook it :: Loganberry Skillet Cake

This past weekend there were fresh loganberries at the farmers market – so we came home with a half of a flat.  Loganberries are somewhat like a blackberry and they are quite tart.  Loganberries make an excellent jam because they remain a bit tart.  
As soon as we brought them home we began scheming ways to cook them up for dessert and I remembered the latest Everyday Food Magazine had a section on blackberries.  Since the berries are so similar, I knew the recipes would transfer over – especially in the skillet cake.  
When I make this cake again (and I will – it was delicious) I will use a smaller skillet and add more berries.  The recipe called for a 10″ cast iron skillet.  I would use an 8″ next time.  The recipe called for three cups of berries.  Next time, I’ll use 4 or 4 1/2.  Because the berries cook on the bottom of the pan they don’t impede the baking of the cake part.  And more berries is always better.
