Dessert #1 for the Johnson family feast! This one comes from Martha Stewart. It was really easy to make and Bob liked it a lot which is great because I pretty much made it for him!
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted plus more for pan
1 1/4 cups cranberries, partially thawed if frozen
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 cup flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 10″ cast iron skillet. (I baked mine in a stoneware oval dish and used cooking spray.) Stir together cranberries and 2 tablespoons sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together milk and egg and then whisk in butter. Whisk milk mixture into flour mixture until combined.
2 Pour batter into skillet and scatter cranberries on top. Bake until center springs back when lightly touched, about 25 – 30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before serving or let sit at room temperature, up to 8 hours.
