 In 2017, I have a new goal to achieve, I want to eat healthily and lose some weight. But actually who has the time to step away from the desk and get an actual healthy, energy boosting snack? Though I cant bear the hustle and bustle life anymore, I have to make money and you guys too. Once me dear friend baked a delicious one pan snake for me when I was really hungry and I intended to order a pizza for myself. I have to say it is the most delicious Cast iron DESSERT recipes ever. She baked a pan of blueberry slump in half an hour. Amazing! The biscuits browns and crisps at the top and remains tender like the insides of a scone in the middle, and melds with the juicy fruit at the bottom. Let alone the sweet thick blueberry sauce! I was shocked at that time and eat the whole pan in a flash. Healthy snacking doesnt have to take a lot of time to make. You just have to do a tiny bit of planning ahead, do you know that saying ‘ If you fail to plan , you plan to fail.’ ? Yeah, it is kind of true, don’t be afraid. I will help you to plan if you want to try this delicious food. And here is the recipe about how to make this amazing blueberry slump.

I appreciate you so much!

We all know where the proof of the pudding is, and this one was very good indeed. This classic New England dessert looks beautiful and smells heavenly when removing it from the oven. It offers a wider range of textures: the dough becomes browned and crisp at the top, remains tender like the insides of a scone in the middle, and melds with the juicy fruit at the bottom. But you have to hold on yourself and let this one pan food cool for a few minutes since the blueberry sauce can be more thicken and taste even better. Also decorating with vanilla ice cream and fresh blueberry will make people feel as if it is cooked by chief. So when you want to surprise your lovers, why not try this one? Plus the blueberry flavor is really great and you will totally be addictive to this one pan masterpiece.

Next time I will share with you a recipe named Skillet Boozy Cherry Clafoutis. Clafoutis are a kind of rustic French custard that's often made with cherries. I am going to make a Skillet Boozy Cherry Clafoutis tomorrow since I have a giant pile of gorgeous cherries and I like this Cast iron skillet dessert. It is a pretty easy summer dessert to make, its similar to a Dutch Baby or German apple pancake, where a batter is blended and it’s baked in the oven until puffed and golden, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve. I just can’t wait to bake this sweet baby in my kitchen. Hope you will like this traditional French dessert!
