I want to make this http://tinyurl.com/7c4msnm cake, but I don't have a cake pan in my house right now. I do have a large cast iron pan... could I bake it in that instead?

I've never made this specific cake, but I have successfully used a cast iron skillet for cakes many times and not just for upside down cakes. The key is to have a well seasoned pan that is oiled enough.
