This is a fairly simple recipe that can be cooked right in your cast iron skillet. Therefore it can be done at home in an oven, or while you are camping or tailgating, using your grill for an oven.

3\4 cup all purpose flour

1 cup sugar, divided into 2 1\2 cups

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1\4 tsp. salt

1\4 tsp. ground cloves

3 medium sized baking apples, cored and sliced about 1\4″ thick, peeled or unpeeled, your choice

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1\3 cup butter

3\4 cup milk

1 large egg, beaten

Combine flour, 1\2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon & cloves in a bowl & set aside. Toss apples with lemon juice in a separate bowl & set that aside. Sprinkle the apples with the other 1\2 cup of sugar. Melt the butter in a 10″ cast iron skillet. Add the milk & beaten egg to the flour mixture & mix well. Pour the batter over the melted butter in your skillet; don’t mix it! Stir your apples to get them well coated & arrange them on top of the batter. Bake in a 350 degree oven or grill for 45 mins. or until the apples are tender. Let stand for at least 20 mins. before serving. A nice dollop of vanilla ice cream on top would be nice.
