Snickerdoodle Skillet CakeIt wasn’t too hard to devour this Snickerdoodle Skillet Cake, since this day is incredibly sad in many ways for me. Today marks the final Secret Recipe Club reveal for my group – Group A. I have been participating in the Secret Recipe Club since July 2011 which I think was only a month or two after it started.

I am putting up a post tomorrow that shows my journey through the club and what recipes I made and what friends I have made because that’s a huge part of this group and what it has meant to me over the years.

But today is all about Traci from Burnt Apple, my last and final blog reveal for Secret Recipe Club and her delicious Snickerdoodle Skillet Cake.Snickerdoodle Skillet CakeI absolutely loved perusing Traci’s blog and learning more about her and her family. Her recipe index was SO much fun to go through and I found so many things I wanted to make.

Among the things I’d really like to make (and might just eventually) were Boudin Bakery Garlic Asiago Sourdough Crackers, Pumpkin Chocolate Snack CakeCreamy Southwest Chicken Ranch PastaCrockpot Maple Dijon Chicken and Rice and Pecan Crusted Chicken with Honey Mustard Dressing.Snickerdoodle Skillet Cake We finally settled on this awesome cake. We went out with a delicious recipe.

Thank you so much Traci, we absolutely loved this skillet cake. I am partial to skillet cakes so when I saw it, I knew it was the one I had to make. I loved your blog, I loved this cake and I am happy you were my final blog assignment for the SRC.

What a simple yet PERFECT recipe for everyday, for a special dinner, simply to delight your family. May I say it was been a pleasure being in SRC with you, and I will miss our monthly meet-ups. I know I will see you around on the interwebs, though. Take good care!

Love that cake. I'm bookmarking it to make sometime later on. Great final choice for SRC. I'm so going to miss SRC, so much in fact. I'm going to be hosting a Link up party starting in January on the first Monday and calling it First Monday, in which I'll be inviting all SRC members (former), to participate with adding their favorite recipe for the previous month. Not the one with the most views, but the one they made that they like the best.
