Today, we’re sharing our favorite recipe for Salted Caramel Apple Skillet!
Treasured Memories in the Kitchen
One of my favorite memories is of my Granny standing in her kitchen. Nearly every weekend, she made 2 big cast iron skillets loaded with drop biscuits.
I can still remember the way she would give each biscuit one last pat with her middle three fingers before placing them in the oven to bake. While I haven’t been able to master her drop biscuits yet I do have a Salted Caramel Apple Skillet recipe to share with you she would have loved.
Fall is a fantastic time of year to enjoy apples. Honeycrisp apples are our favorite and I’m sure family has a favorite too.
If you have a serious sweet tooth like we do, consider baking this Salted Caramel Apple Skillet for your next gathering. It’s simple to make and you only need a few ingredients plus an iron skillet to make this tasty treat. This recipe is for a small skillet so keep that in mind if you’re using a bigger one.
Here’s a look at the recipe and all the details…

1/8 cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup flour
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons of melted butter
Salted Caramel Apple Skillet Steps

Salted Caramel Apple Skillet Crumble Topping Steps

with 3 tablespoons of melted butter and

Salted Caramel Recipe & Steps
To make the salted caramel, heat ½ cup sugar on high stirring constantly until melted.
and immediately add 3 tablespoons butter.
As a result the caramel will bubble quickly during this step. So, be sure to use caution and care as caramel will be very hot. Continue to stir until both butter and sugar are melted.
Slowly drizzle ¼ cup cream into the mixture and allow to boil for approximately 1 minute. Remove from heat and add ½ teaspoon of course sea salt and stir.
Set aside and allow sauce to thicken while apple skillet is baking.
Bake & Serve
Once you take the apple skillet out of the oven, let it cool until warm. Then drizzle salted caramel over entire skillet. You may have some of the salted caramel sauce left over.
If you do, it’s really good on ice cream, brownies or in coffee and hot chocolate too.
Consequently the sweet flavor from the caramel, mixed with the tartness of the apples, combined with the kick of the salt, is really good.
It’s like grab a spoon and just let me at it already ha ha.
For real, it’s that good. Above all, this salted caramel apple skillet is simple to make and is a fun way to help usher in the Fall season.
