Vibing hard on autumnal baked goods lately. My midsection does not thank me, but a little extra insulation for the winter is fine, right??? (say yes) Something about cinnamon, vanilla and clove permeating the house that just gives me those cozy feels. And then I want to make all the "spiced" things. I just bought donut pans so, yeah, get ready people. Once you go down the pumpkin spice donut hole there's no coming back.
When those feels hit you after dinner, a quick skillet cake will do the trick rather nicely. This one is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, vanilla bean and orange for good measure. (Just add all the spices and... go) Add some seasonal fruit, in this case pears, on top and call it a day (vanilla bean ice cream optional). Keep this one in your arsenal for unexpected company or potlucks.
Now off to put said donut pans to use. See you on the other side...xx
Recipe after the jump...
Spiced Orange Pear Skillet Cake

Substitute the pear with other fall fruits like apple, Asian pear or quince. You can also substitute the fruit for 1 cup of chopped fresh cranberries, mixed into the batter.
