iron skillet apple cake

October is Vegan Month of Food(VeganMoFo) and so I wanted to share this apple cake I made a while back, after our trip to the apple orchards.

After doing some major indulging over the weekend, and the last month actually, I’ve been cutting back big time on portions and snacking, in hopes of saving myself of heavy-weight heartache come January.  So I’ve eliminated coffee (my gateway drug to over eating) and am keeping away from excess snacking (hello fruit!).

So, posting this delicious, gorgeous, amazing, decadent cake is well, um, kinda  like torture. But, I had to post it because it’s too good not to share, right?

I used THIS recipe (via pinterest) and veganized it.  I seasoned my skillet with coconut oil, which worked great, used earth balance, a good vegan cake recipe, and ta-dah!  Iron skillet apple cake.  It just screams autumn, don’t you think?

  3. k…i just wiped some drool off my face looking at those pictures! and all while I’m sipping some coffee (however, proud to say it’s black-I’m abandoning all sweetners….at least the all unnatural ones!)
    thanks for sharing as apples are everywhere in WA 🙂

  6. My ma used to make something like this and I never did get a recipe from her… Now, it will be nice to try this and see if I can remember the mother made version and see if it compares…

    I am wondering about adding a bit of oatmeal? There was always oatmeal in my mom’s version…
