Use foil on the iron skillet
You might wonder why you would use foil on this skillet. As you season your pan, you may cook flavorful items in there, like taco meat or other strong-flavored foods. There is a small chance your coffee cake could pick up these flavors, but a couple of small sheets of foil will keep the flavor of your coffee cake pure.
