Instructions
  1. Place the butter in the cast iron skillet or baking dish and place in the oven to melt the butter.
  2. When melted, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts. Stir to well combine then place back in the oven for a few minutes for the brown sugar to melt. Remove from oven.
  3. Generously cut those apples into large one inch slices. They will cook down a lot! Arrange the apple slices over the top of the brown sugar sauce and set the pan aside while preparing the cake.
Cake
  1. In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the sugar, butter and shortening. Using an electric mixer, beat until fluffy; about 2 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, one at at time and beat until well incorporated and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. The batter will be thick.
  5. Carefully and slowly spread the batter evenly over the apple mixture in the skillet.
  6. Bake for 55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Doesn’t that look awesome? Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack for 15 minutes.
  7. Run a knife around the outside edge of the skillet or baking dish. Using a plate that fits over your skillet/baking dish, carefully invert the skillet so that the cake drops onto the plate. Don’t fret if some of the topping sticks to the pan. Just take a spoon or a spatula and patch it up! I don’t spend one minute worrying about that.
  8. Serve as is, or do as Sparky does. Liberally apply as much whipped cream as you can. Add more whipped cream as you deplete your supply!
