QUICK—QUICK—-QUICK  SKILLET CAKE (and easy as well)

Here’s an iron skillet cake that I love.  It’s so easy to make and so good to eat.  I use either walnuts or almonds for the topping.

Ingredients:

1 cup flour

1/4 tsp. baking powder

Pinch of salt

1/2 tsp. vanilla for a walnut topping or almond extract if using an almond topping

2 large eggs

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 stick sweet butter, melted

1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or almonds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350

  1. Butter a 9-inch iron skillet and sprinkle some flour over it all.
  2. In a medium size bowl whisk the eggs and sugar together.  Add the butter and whisk until satiny.  Stir in the flour mixture; whisk until smooth.  Spread batter in the skillet and top with the walnuts or almonds.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. If you wish, drizzle some raspberry jam over it. I do and it makes it extra yummy and pretty.
  5. Serve slightly warm or at room temp.  I tie a pretty napkin or scarf around the handle.
  6. Ice cream goes great with this.

Bon Appetit!!!!
