Apple Skillet Cake

This treat is heavy on apples and light on batter, so it's more like a thin German pancake than a dense cake.


  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup low-fat milk

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 3 sweet apples (such as McIntosh) peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch slices

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoon raw sugar

  • ½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, and salt; set aside. In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook apple slices, stirring occasionally, until soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and cook until caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Pour in batter and transfer to oven. Bake until cake puffs, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with raw sugar and return to oven until brown on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool slightly. Serve each slice with a dollop of Greek yogurt, if using.
