Any dessert baked in a cast iron skillet is okay with me! I love using my cast iron to bake and cook with, and use it whenever I can. I still don’t think I have it properly seasoned, though. I have a bad habit of scrubbing clean the cast iron after using it. Bad Emily!
No problem. Except this isn’t a one pot meal, per say (well, for me it is). It’s a one pot dessert, and it’s delicious. I love that the only added sweetener is pure maple syrup.
Annndd…. the cake is actually made and baked in the same skillet! No extra dishes!
I love, love maple syrup and try to use it as much as possible – especially in the fall. I think it goes well with pumpkin and pecans, don’t you? I also think this is a good Thanksgiving dessert, eh?
This cake is almost like pudding, because it is so soft and moist from the pumpkin, maple syrup, cream cheese, butter and cream. Yes… it has all of those good things.
I topped a slice with fresh whipped cream. Mmmm!
Now, if you happen to have leftover cake, I have another recipe for you! Maple Pumpkin Cabinet Pudding. A cabinet pudding is kind of like a bread pudding made with cake. I cubed the cake and soaked it in a mixture of maple syrup, cream, egg and vanilla. After soaking, the cake is divided into ramekins and baked until golden brown.
I topped the cabinet pudding with whipped cream, hot out of the oven. If you like bread pudding, you’ll love this dessert.
