Brown Sugar & Walnut Skillet Cake

walnut skillet cakeBrown Sugar & Walnut Skillet Cake

When I decided to make this cake, it took less time to make the batter than it took to preheat the oven. You use a whisk to make it, not a mixer, which means you can whip it up in little time and the cleanup is very easy. It’s a delicious, dense cake – almost like a Blondie.


1 cup flour (I use fresh ground soft white wheat)
1/ tsp aluminum-free baking powder
Pinch of salt (Kosher or sea salt is best)
2 large eggs
1/ cup brown sugar
1/ cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup walnuts


Measuring cups/spoons
Large bowls
9-inch skillet
Sharp knife/cutting board


Preheat the oven to 350º degrees F (175º degrees C).

Heavily butter a 9-inch cast-iron skillet.

Chop the walnuts.

Melt the butter


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.In another bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together. Add the butter and whisk until satiny.
