Old fashioned sugar cake is a delicious, moist cake, similar to a pound cake, that is baked in a cast iron skillet. This vanilla cake does not need frosting. A simple sprinkle of powdered sugar will do. Baking the cake in a cast iron skillet gives the crust a unique texture that you don’t get from a regular baking pan. If you don’t have any cast iron cookware, find some today, and get cooking! The original recipe for this “Pinspiration” can be found here.
