Chunky Apple Cake

I love apple cake and the bigger the apple chunks the more I like it! I got this recipe for Chunky Apple Cake from Heidi at Frantically Simple yesterday and I just had to try it! Well, all I can say is WOW! YUM! and WOW some more! :)

This recipe is deceptively simple and amazingly good! I only made half a recipe since it is just the two of us and I baked it in my 10-inch cast iron skillet. I added just a touch more cinnamon, because I like it :), and left the walnut pieces pretty chunky to complement the apples.


I baked this up early this morning, before getting started with my bread baking for the day. I had a little sliver still warm from the oven, plain, after coming in from milking the goat and was highly impressed! I had another piece drizzled with a little maple syrup after Jerry and I came back from our walk. The apples, walnuts and whole wheat flour just called out maple syrup to me! ;-)


If you are a fan of apple cake, like me, I highly recommend you check this recipe out over at Heidi's blog! She graciously agreed to let me link back to her for the recipe and, besides, you will get to see her pictures which are WAAY better than mine! LOL!!

Lovely! Thanks for linking back to me; I'm so glad you liked it. I love that you cooked it in a cast iron skillet - I'll bet that made the edges all crusty and divine. Yum!

Heidi,
I love baking in my cast iron skillet because it does make the edges crusty! I even bake brownies in it sometimes! :)

I have never baked anything in a cast iron skillet in the oven. That sounds like such a good idea! And this looks and sounds really good.

Kateri,
I love baking in cast iron, especially corn bread! The cast iron makes for a nice crispy crust! :)
