This is the first time I’ve baked in my new cast iron skillet!
When I did my round-up of 25 Cast Iron Skillet Recipes a couple of weeks ago one recipe caught my eye. Introducing German Pumpkin Skillet Cake!
Today was the first day that I noticed that the leaves were changing on the trees. Not a good sign!
Although I love this time of year for all the beautiful colors outside, I also know that the changing leaves mean that winter is just around the corner. Let’s not think about that right now, okay? Let’s think about this German Pumpkin Skillet Cake that I made.
This cake was pretty easy to put together. I liked that everything got mixed in the skillet and then the skillet was put in the oven. I was so surprised that this cake only took 15 minutes in the oven, compared to a traditional cake. One thing I would suggest is toasting your chopped pecans and coconut ahead of time so that they’re ready when you need them.
Although this cake was delicious, gooey and moist, we’re not a cake kind of family and we’ll be sticking to the traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. The cake did, however, pique my interest to make many more things in my skillet. Do you have any favorite recipes that you make in your skillet? I’d love to hear them!
