Oh. My. Goodness. This cake is heaven in a skillet. But something about that skillet (plus the ice cream and caramel sauce) makes it taste even better! We just put the whole thing in the middle of the table and handed everyone a spoon. Which is kind of the same thing our family does when the 5 of us share a dessert at a restaurant. And this warm, gooey, chocolate sundae cake is definitely restaurant quality.
Do I even need to mention that the cake was devoured in 5 minutes or less (which also happens when we share dessert at a restaurant). I did have some whipped cream in the refrigerator, but I was so excited about digging in, I completely forgot to use it. Still delicious. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, it’s worth getting one just to make this cake!
