Apple Skillet Cake
Serves: Makes 1 (10-inch) cake
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (about 5 cups)
  • 1⁄4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cane syrup
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 11⁄3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1⁄2 cup whole milk, warmed
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Garnish: caramel topping*
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with baking spray with flour.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together apple, brown sugar, cane syrup, and apple pie spice. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter, egg, and vanilla. Make a well in center of dry ingredients; add milk mixture, stirring until combined. Pour batter into prepared skillet. Top with apple mixture.
