Apple Skillet Cake

Apple Skillet Cake from Pioneer Woman

This has got to be one of the most fatteningly delicious recipes I have made in a long, long time.  I got it off the Pioneer Woman’s website.  I actually had to lower the amount of butter for which it called because my arteries couldn’t stand reading about using almost 3/4 pound of butter for one cake.  As is it, I doubled the recipe, made two cakes and still used a lot of  butter. It was SOOOOO wonderful.

You can find her recipe HERE.  I used reduced fat sour cream in the cake. I only 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar  for the sauce. Then I reduced the butter to  6 Tbsp  for the cake.  If you use sweeter apples, instead of Granny Smiths, you can reduce the sugar in cake to 1/2 cup.

  1. >I am so excited. Ever since, I got two cast iron skillets, I look for recipes, like this. I love apple so this is going to be a fun recipe.

  2. >I was floored to see your link at Rachel's!! I also posted a skillet cake today – the first one I've ever made – Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Skillet Cake just seems like a crazy coincidence to me.

    Anyway – I love this apple one and I will try it for sure!

  3. >I love love love this cake! My Granny used to make it for us growing up and now I have her skillet!!! I've made it only once but I LOVE it!!!! Too funny that you and Amy BOTH posted skillet cakes today!

  4. >Michelle – I do freeze the entire mcmuffin. I toast the english muffins first before assembling to give them a bit of crunch. I wrap them in waxed paper and pop them in the freezer in a ziploc. To reheat, I use the microwave, but you could probably also put them in a toaster or real oven.

  5. >I came to visit my cake. Until, I get to bake it, I can come here and stare at it. No, I came to rescue the recipe and run away with it. We have two apple cakes that have to be finished before I start on this.

  6. >I saw this recipe on PW and wanted to make but was also concerned about the amount of butter. Glad to know cutting it back doesn't make it any less yummy! Thanks for sharing!
