Pineapple-Strawberry Skillet Buckle

Pineapple-Strawberry Skillet Buckle, try saying that three times really fast.  Anyway, we had some pineapple and strawberry leftover from the Summer Fruit and Goat Cheese Crostini, so I decided to turn it into a skittle buckle.

Pineapple-Strawberry Cast Iron Skillet BuckleWhat’s a buckle you ask? The best way to describe it will be a cake with fruits baked into it then topped with streusel toppings. Besides, the recipe also gave me a chance to use the Cast-Iron Skillet,I bought recently. Although the skillet came preseason-ed I didn’t want to take a chance.  I washed it, slathered it with some shortening and put it in the oven for about an hour to be on a safe side.

    The directions don’t say when to add the vanilla extract and the milk?
