Cast Iron Apple Nutmeg Coffee Cake

Contributed By: Parker


3 tablespoons butter, cubed
2 cups chopped peeled Gala apple
1/2 cup packed brown sugar, divided
1/4 cup brewed coffee
2/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg plus 1 large egg white, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup brewed coffee
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar


1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add apple and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Cook and stir until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in coffee; remove from heat.
2. In a large bowl, beat oil, sugar, egg, egg white, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar until well blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually beat into oil mixture. Gently spread over apple mixture.
3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, for drizzle, in a small saucepan, bring coffee and cream to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/4 cup, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in confectioners' sugar. Let stand 10 minutes. Drizzle over cake.
