Notes on Ingredients

Each ingredient in this recipe plays a vital role in creating the perfect Skillet Apple Brownie:

  • Apples: Use fresh, peeled, cored, and chopped apples. They add a delightful sweetness and texture.
  • Pecans: Chopped pecans provide a crunchy contrast to the soft brownie base.
  • Spices: Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves give the dessert a warm, spiced flavor.
  • Sugars: A mix of white and brown sugar adds depth and richness.
  • Eggs and Butter: These create a moist, tender crumb.

How to Make Skillet Apple Brownie

  1. Preheat the Skillet: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place an 8- or 9-inch cast iron skillet in the oven to preheat.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: Whisk together 1 cup of flour, ½ cup of white sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar, ¼ teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and ½ teaspoon of ground cloves in a bowl.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate mixing bowl, beat together 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and ½ cup of melted butter.
  4. Combine Mixtures: Toss 2 cups of peeled, cored, and chopped apples, and ½ cup of chopped pecans in the flour mixture. Stir this into the egg mixture until combined.
  5. Prepare the Skillet: Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the preheated skillet, swirling to coat the pan.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the hot skillet and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the sides are dry and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Serve: Cool in the skillet for 20 minutes before removing and slicing. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How to Serve Skillet Apple Brownie

Serve this Skillet Apple Brownie warm, directly from the skillet, with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The contrast of the hot, spiced brownie with the cold, creamy ice cream is simply divine. You can also dust the top with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

How to Store Skillet Apple Brownie

If you have leftovers (which is rare!), store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. For longer storage, refrigerate the brownie for up to 5 days. Reheat in the oven at a low temperature before serving to enjoy it warm.

FAQs About Skillet Apple Brownie

Can I use a different type of nut?

Absolutely! Walnuts or almonds would work well in this recipe if you prefer.

What kind of apples should I use?

Any firm apple variety like Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Fuji will hold up well during baking and provide a nice balance of tartness and sweetness.

Can I make this recipe without a cast iron skillet?

Yes, you can use a well-greased frying pan or other oven-safe skillet. Just ensure it’s thoroughly coated to prevent sticking. If using a regular pan, avoid preheating it in the oven to prevent shattering.

  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 2 cups apples – peeled cored and chopped
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place an 8- or 9-inch cast iron skillet into the oven to preheat.
  • Whisk together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a bowl; set aside.
  • Beat together eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Toss apples and pecans in the flour mixture, then stir into the egg mixture until combined. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the preheated skillet, swirling to coat the pan.
  • Pour the batter into the hot pan, and replace into the oven. Bake until the sides are dry and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownie comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool in the skillet for 20 minutes before removing and slicing.


If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can use a well-greased frying pan or other skillet with any non-metal parts wrapped in a double layer of tinfoil — or just use a regular casserole or brownie pan, just don’t preheat glass or ceramic! When you add the batter it will shatter.
