Apple Skillet

I started making this for breakfast on Saturdays as a sort of giant, sweet, fruity pancake. My daughter named it “Apple Skillet” for obvious reasons. 🙂 We like it with a light dusting of powdered sugar and a side of bacon.

    Kelly, I made the apple skillet this morning for brunch…Yum! We both loved it. I even used my cast iron skillet…had to find it in the back of the cupboard first. Thanks so much for posting this! Will definitely make it again.

    I would give this recipe 10 stars if allowed. The best skillet pancake I have ever made. It’s so moist sort of between a pancake and cake. First time I made it was with apples; second was pineapple out of my frezer; third was pineapple and banana; and today blueberries. I used 1 cup of blueberries I had in the freezer and it was just perfect. Thank you Kelly for such a great recipe which I will be using many times in the future.

    I’m going to have to try this recipe again. I think I flubbed it up. First, I made the apple part in my big cast iron pan. Then I left it in a cold place overnight so I would only have half the work to do in the morning. While the apples sat in the pan overnight, the apples became discolored from the cast iron pan. I plowed ahead and completed the recipe, but the whole thing didn’t look very appetizing after that. I took it to a pot luck brunch, and it was hardly touched. Those who did take some loved it though. Next time, I’ll make it in a stainless steel pan or plop it on a serving dish or something. Presentation is so important, and that’s what I goofed on.

    made this tonight. OH OH OH it is so good!! going in my “keeper” file (and it has to be good to get in that) I made it in a nonstick skillet. We both loved it, hubby suggested using peaches next time, yep, I’m good with that. Thank you so much for a really good, quick, easy recipe.
