Iron Skillet French Apple Pie

I love apple pie, just don’t always have the time to make it, so when I stumbled along this recipe in an old recipe box it had to be made! After it was baked though it came to mind that this really sin’t pie, it’s more like cake, which just makes it even more appealing if you ask me.
  French Apple Pie, HELLO?! Who can say no to cake right? Pretty much no one. When you bite into it’s there’s just that hint of almost a light very moist coffee cake batter. It’s so good!


3/4 cup
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
4 very large apples, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp rum
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 Tablespoon butter for skillet

 Heat oven to 350. Melt the 1 tablespoon butter into your iron skillet, make sure you move it around to coat all sides then set a side.

Stir together your flour m baking powder, and salt. In another bowl whisk together the eggs until foamy, then slowly add sugar. Add in the vanilla and rum till well mixed. Slowly add this mixture into the dry while stirring, should make a nice batter. Fold in your apple chunks and  then pour batter into your 8 or 9 inch cast iron skillet.

Bake for about an hour, you want to be able to insert a knife in the center and have it come out clean. Let cool and serve with french ice cream or even cool whip!

    I've been looking for a second hand iron skillet. It creates some great creations. I haven't been successful yet, and this only makes me want to look harder. I haven't made a pie in one though. I'll have to try it.

    Skillet apple pie is one of my favorites. There is just something about apple pie bakes in a cast iron skillet. Always pair with some whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream. Double yum.
