Apple Cake

While we don't have a change of seasons here in Houston, I look forward to this time of year.  I can't wait to start making soups and apple dishes, oh and pumpkin bread.  It's all so good.  The pick of the day is apples.

 As I was looking for recipes, I found the perfect one on 'The Pioneer Woman Cooks'.  She calls it Apple Cake in an Iron Skillet and it is a snap to make.  Most of her recipes are easy to follow as is this one.  It reminded me of a cobbler.  Since I didn't change anything in the recipe, please click on the link above to Ree's website.  You will love the story she tells about it almost as much as you love the cake.

Here are photos of this little autumn adventure. 
First add the apples, butter and sugar to cast iron pan.  Super simple, You let it cook for about 15 minutes.
 Mix the batter while the apples simmer away.  Yummy, Yummy.  Then spoon the batter on top.
 Spread out the batter to cover all of the apples.  It doesn't look like much but it goes along way.
 Then throw it in the oven.  I had to bake mine about 10 minutes longer than the recipe calls for.
It gets golden brown and soaks up all that butter making a cobbler like dough.
 It would be a very pretty presentation to turn it out on a cake plate but it got cut into too fast.
It looks good this way too. 
 And this way....

  1. I'm loving the huge chunks of apple in this, and there's something pretty cool about seeing a cake cooked in a skillet :)
