Coffee Skillet Cake – for the Four Day Weekend

Before I head off to the seaside for more beach cooking recipes to share with you I want to share this Skillet Cake beauty.  It’s a great recipe to cook if you’ve got a crowd coming over the Easter weekend.  While you are sitting down to eat your main feast, this will happily sit in the oven doing it’s thing ready to be devoured when you are.  You can eat it as a hot pudding or cold cake for afternoon tea.

Coffee Skillet Cake for the Four Day Weekend with Beachhutcook

I cooked it in my cast iron 28cm skillet/paella pan from Houseology but it any medium roasting dish will do just remember to grease it well and you’ll be pleasantly surprised how well it turns out.

    Looks tasty, I love everything cooked with coffee. My mom tried that once, will try myself now. I am thinking to add Vanilla extract in cake paste with ground cinnamon and walnuts as topping. What do you think, how it will turn, as my hubby loves vanilla flavor, need to think about him too, lol. I also write allot about coffee, hope you will enjoy our handpicked coffee machines catalogue.

    I keep coming across these skillet cakes and I don’t have anything resembling a skillet so I can’t try it out! Thanks for joining in with #BAKEoftheWEEK !

      You can always use a well lined roasting tin. I’ve done this before. Might not look as pretty but still tastes fab!

    Gawd, that looks lovely! It’s cake porn for me right now because I can’t eat ‘real’ cake! Gah, it looks lovely!
