My mother was a wonderful baker. Surprisingly, most of her baking she did without the aid of a cookbook. I hope my sharing brings back memories for you...for me, it's in my mother's kitchen, with her standing behind me, and letting me create.

An Apple Cake in Mom's Cast Iron Skillet...
After running this morning, I got to thinking..."what shall I bake today?" I decided to check my email before scouring through my many cookbooks to come up with something new. Lo and behold, there was an email from King Arthur Flour with a recipe "Easy Fresh Apple Cake" baked in a 2-inch deep cast-iron skillet. My Mom gave me my cast-iron skillet when I got married. (It will be 41 years old on September 16!) This recipe is easy, makes up quickly and baking in a cast-iron skillet is healthy.
