A simple scrumptious skillet cake full of sweet apples and comforting spice!
- 9 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 2 large McIntosh apples, peeled and diced
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, divided
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1–1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- whipped topping, for serving
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add the diced apples, 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until apples start to soften. Turn off heat.
- In a large microwave safe mixing bowl, melt the remaining 8 tablespoons butter and let cool slightly before whisking in the remaining 1 cup light brown sugar. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, and stir until just combined. Fold in the apples.
- Spread the cake batter evenly back into the skillet that you sautéed the apples in. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cooled.
