  • 2 medium Gala apple peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoon butter divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • powdered sugar and maple syrup for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a 10-inch cast iron skillet melt 2 tablespoon butter. Toss the sliced apple with brown sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and add to the melted butter. Cook for around 7-10 minutes or until softened. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
  • Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel. Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla. Add the flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt and ground nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Melt the remaining 2 tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Swirl coating the bottom and sides. Pour the batter into the skillet and arrange the cooked apples on top leaving a 2-inch border to allow the edges to puff up. Save a few caramel apple slices for garnishing, if desired.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until puffy and golden. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
