Apple Oatmeal Skillet Cake

As you can see …. I love this skillet so much that I made another skillet cake.  You will be seeing more of my skillet cake creations in the future.  The cake is a breeze to get out of the pan.  With the new excitement for this pan maybe you will see me post more ;)

This cake was also made with my goodies from Mercier Orchard.  I used a Cameo Apple for this cake.  It takes just 1 large apple.  I did cut my apple up in small pieces as I am not a “big” chunk of anything in my food fan.

The cake was super moist and smelled like an apple candle.  I was also a huge fan of the crumb topping.  I am going to try this crumb topping on some of my other recipes that call for a streusel or crumb topping.  

I made this cake for dessert last night and we served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  This morning Bill made the comment that it kind of reminds him of coffee cake, so we had another piece for breakfast!  Without the ice cream, he is right, it tasted like apple coffee cake.

So far my favorite skillet cake is the Sweet Potato Skillet Cake, I think that one is going to be hard to beat (but I will keep trying)
