This was another find on the Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day this week. I enjoy finding recipes to make in my cast iron pan. Amy from A Little Nosh chose this recipe from Amanda at Amanda's Cookin' whose blog I have been following for a while. I am sure this will not last long, but will be a nice treat to enjoy while it lasts.
