    I know just what you mean, Tina, there is something so neat about it baking on the stove top! I have been really impressed with everyone’s recipes this week!

    Betsy: You are so welcome! Thank you for reading Southern Plate, I’m so glad you’re here!!!

      I have come across you while looking for recipes for apple butter. I use my iron skillet every day and I have one in the rv. This will be an easy dessert while camping. I have sent it on to my camping buddies. My iron skillets have been passed down from my grandmother to my mom to me and I have given several to my kids. I’m glad my kids have learned they get some of the best foods from using iron skillets, Dutch ovens and the baking pans my grandmoer had. I don’t see the old fashioned baking pans like my grandmothers. I remember the best cobblers she made from the fruits we picked when visiting her. To all that does not have a real cast iron skillet, I highly suggest getting one. You’ll wonder why you never had one. Many antique shops have them. I always search the shops when traveling.

    How cool that you can make cake without heating the oven! I sometimes do little cakes in a bowl in the microwave (in fact, I just did one about ten minutes ago), but that apple cake looks spectacular!!!

    That cake looks good! I like to make pineapple upside down cakes in my iron skillet.

    Right now I am cooling the Butterfinger Cake in the fridge. I still have to put the whipped topping on it. Let’s see if I did it right lol!

  4. BillGent says

    All I gotta say is WHOA! The cake was a success! Woohoo! I did one right!

    Gotta go to a mens breakfast at church in the morning.. I’m taking it with me. Those guys will eat anything for breakfast.

    Hey Stephanie! You might wanna check out my apple recipe contest winners………~clears throat and smiles~

    Bill, I’m so happy for you! We’ve always known you were a great cook, though!

    I made this cake yesterday for my family (my sister was visiting). If I could write this in really really big letters I would, but I’ll have to content myself with bold and italics and capital letters:

    HOLY COW – THIS WAS THE MOST INCREDIBLE CAKE I’VE EVER EATEN!!! I seriously loved this cake and everyone else did too. Thankyou thankyou thankyou so much for this wonderful recipe, Christy!!

    Hey Christy… this looks very yummy! AND my hubby just came home with a big bag of apples from a co-worker…. I got the impression he wants me to “do something” with them. 😐
    Anyway.. I choose the Apple Skillet Cake!
    I have one question: Can I use a cast iron skillet..or just the ordinary skillet?

    Made this for my family yesterday. Followed directions exactly. So simple and very good. Only thing is I found it took quiet a bit longer than the 20 minutes to firm and actually after about 40 minutes I stuck in 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes to complete. Maybe my low was to low! Highly recommend!

    Hi there! I love your site. I just made this recipe for my husband. It made the house smell wonderful. It turned out really good, but I couldn’t get the dough to firm. I cooked it for over 30 minutes on low to low-medium heat. Might be the condensation from the lid. Not sure, but we decided to dig in anyway. Was very tasty!

  10. Bobb says

    I just got done eating this fantastic cake!!!! Absolutel delicious!! My husband said it was the best cake he ever had!!!! Thanks Christy for this wonderful recipe!!! Believe me, I will make this again!!

  11. Winona says

    I am making this now.. however when I covered the batter for the 20 minutes, I left it on medium heat for 12 minutes before I realized I was suppose to turn it down to low 🙁 I hope it turns out okay! I will let y’all know 🙂
