Salted Caramel Apple Skillet
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…
Salted Caramel Apple Skillet Recipe
Apples (we used 3)
1 tablespoon Butter
1/8 cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Apple Skillet Crumble Topping
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup flour
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons of melted butter
Salted Caramel Apple Skillet Steps
Firstly preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then cut and peel 3 apples into thin slices. Set aside.
Next, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the skillet.
After butter is melted, add 1/8 cup brown sugar
and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon into the skillet
and cook on medium heat until apples are almost soft.
Salted Caramel Apple Skillet Crumble Topping Steps
To make the crumble topping, in a large bowl, combine dry ingredients as listed above.
with 3 tablespoons of melted butter and
stir with a fork.
Place the crumble topping over apples and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
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.
Most importantly, it’s also a great way to enjoy apple picking season. If you haven’t tried our Quick and Easy Apple Slices or our Salted Caramel Apple Dump Cake

You’re gonna love this ladies! Hugs, Coco
Yum!!! I think I’ve got all the ingredients on hand, woohoo!! Going to give this a try tonight! I love your comment about your grandmother’s fingerprints in the top of the drop biscuits. My Mamaw did the same thing and, no, I haven’t mastered her drop biscuits either. Miss those biscuits!
Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
I swear it’s going to take the rest of my life to be able to master those biscuits Angie, especially since “oh you know just a little bit of this and that” are the primary instructions 🙂 Hugs sweet friend, CoCo
Hi Coco… Three words for you Yum yum Yum!!! Omg that looks so delish and I can’t wait to try it. Hmmm vanilla ice cream would be a fab treat too lol. Have a great weekend. Xo Lisa
This would be fantastic with vanilla ice cream. We’ve been trying to be so good lately but this is a big season for baking so it’s hard 🙂 Hugs, Coco
Wow this looks totally delish! You know I have a serious sweet tooth also and since this apple skillet is easy enough to make, I will be trying this one out in the near future. I just have to get off my lazy butt and get some apples 😀 Have a great weekend!
Angeline, this recipe is really easy to make! I used honeycrisp but you could use any apples that are great for baking. We could be sweet tooth twins. Hugs, Coco
Such a great way to use freshly picked apples! The salted caramel topping sounds like it would really shine in this dish! I have a feeling I would eat this for breakfast if given the chance. It’has fruit and oats so it’s healthy, right?
It’s so good! I’m hoping I can still make myself believe it’s actually healthy and totally worth it while I’m on the treadmill, Jamie 🙂 Hugs, CoCo
