Skillet Apple Brownies

Warning-if you are afraid of butter don't try this recipe.

Preheat oven to 350. Put an 8 or 9 in. cast iron skillet in the oven to preheat.

Whisk together:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves

Beat together
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter

Toss 2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples and 1/2 cup chopped pecans together.
Add to flour mixture, then add egg mixture.

Put 1 tablespoon butter in the hot pan and swirl to coat the pan.

Add apple mixture.

Bake about 40 minutes.

Cool 20 minutes (if you can) before slicing.

  2. can these be made without a cast iron skillet?

  3. Yes, you can make them in a baking dish, too. (I did that when I made 2 batches) just butter the cold dish. With cast iron you can put the cold mixture in the pan that has been heated.

    Let me know what ya think. I love them and love the way my house smells with them baking:)

  4. Thank you for this recipe! I would have never looked for it on my own but oh, do these sound delicious!

  5. Wow that sounds a great recipe, thanks for sharing it! :)

  6. Mmmm, these sounds yummy! I'm planning on having a little bake to myself this weekend so I might give them a go! Sorry I missed your blog party, by the way. I tried to get around as many as I could on the day but it was tough going! But I'm glad I found it eventually. Looks like it was wonderful :) Well, thanks for stopping by my place- it led me here. Happy Halloween!

  7. Oh yum! I am definitely going to have to bookmark this for trying soon! I just bought a few bags of apples (earmarked for applesauce and pie filling), and this would be perfect. ;)

  8. Afraid of butter?! haha! I had to laugh, I try to avoid it as much as possible! Are there others like me out there? :) My mother would LOVE this since she LOVES her butter!!!
    thanks for stopping by chinamommy!!

  9. yea, that was my attempt at humor.

    I really think you could use veg oil and maybe even some applesauce in place of the butter:) Just use the butter in the pan cause it does give the brownies a bit of flavor.

    I've actually been trying to cook healthier, I think I will experiment with that recipe a bit.

    Casey I'm trying your soup recipe today.

  10. This looks super yummy. I've been looking for something to make for my hubby's grandmother's 80th birthday. She would love this!

  11. Mmmmmm... this sounds amazing! I'm a sucker for anything with cinnamon and cloves in. Have bookmarked for later.
