Apple Skillet Cake

I’ve been suffering from a bit of an apple obsession lately. We did our annual trip to the farm and picked 23 pounds of apples. And you can’t just eat 23 pounds of apples alone, so I’ve been doing a lot of apple oriented baking. My most recent find has been this apple skillet cake.


Recipe adapted from here.

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large apples, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare your skillet by spraying it with cooking spray.

2. In your electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar on high speed until it is smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and continue mixing. Scrape down the sides.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Slowly add it to the electric mixer in three batches. In between each batch of flour, add the buttermilk.
