This blueberry cream cheese cake offers a delectable combination of flavors and textures.

Berries, lemon, and cream cheese come together in a divine combination in this blueberry cream cheese skillet cake. 
The soft and slightly tangy cream cheese melts into the cobbler and blends harmoniously with the fresh blueberries. 

To achieve the best results, opt for full-fat cream cheese, such as the popular Philadelphia brand.

Whether you're hosting a gathering or simply craving a delightful breakfast or dessert, this skillet cake is sure to please.

This skillet cake strikes a perfect balance between sweetness and tartness, making it an ideal breakfast or dessert to enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Once the cobbler is baked to perfection, it's crucial to allow it to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. This cooling period ensures that the center of the cobbler sets properly, resulting in a more cohesive texture.

To serve, dust the cobbler with powdered sugar and use a generous serving spoon to portion it into bowls, or if it's cold enough, you can cut in slices and serve. 

Accompany it with a generous scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream for a delightful contrast of flavors and temperatures.

For a gluten-free recipe, it's worth experimenting and swapping the all-purpose flour with cup-for-cup gluten-free baking flour. While the recipe hasn't been specifically tested with gluten-free alternatives, this substitution may yield favorable results.

When it comes to the skillet, make sure to use a cast-iron or oven-safe skillet (a 10" diameter will work just fine).

Tips and Tricks:

Precise Measuring: As always, to ensure accurate results, it is best to weigh the flour using a food scale. Or you could also spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level it off with a flat edge. Make sure NOT to scoop the flour directly from the bag, as it can pack down and result in too much flour.

Preparing Blueberries: Begin by picking through the blueberries, discarding any stems or bad berries. Give them a good rinse and pat them dry with a paper towel to remove the water. This step guarantees that no extra moisture finds its way into the skillet cake, ensuring a perfect texture.

Mixing with Care: As you prepare the batter, make sure NOT to overmix. Stop stirring as soon as the ingredients come together, ensuring a light and fluffy texture.

Don't hesitate to try this quick and easy recipe for a delightful culinary experience that will leave you 
wanting more. 
Happy baking!
