The same night that I made the chicken pot pie dreams are made of, I was on the hunt for a similarly comforting dessert. And, again, Joy the Baker had all of the answers to my hopes and dreams for that night. As much as I love sweets, I don’t bake them too often- I find breads and biscuits to be so much more interesting for some reason. However, this buttermilk cake was simple and inviting with a gorgeous touch of cardamom and a crust from the skillet that is to die for.
I am absolutely in love. This is the perfect cake for dessert on a cold night with a scoop of ice cream or breakfast (let’s call it coffee cake!) with a hot cup of coffee in the morning. Absolutely delicious.
A little note… it took quite a bit longer to cook than the recipe said. I think it might have been because I did a large layer of apples on top which resulted in more water cooking out from them. Worth every extra minute, though!
