APPLE CRISP - Cast Iron Baking

On a cold day there is something yummy about smelling apples baking! Here is Apple Crisp in my new cast iron skillet that I won from Blackiron Dude. The skillet is beautifully seasoned. I am finally confident in using it now that he posted great tips on how to keep your iron clean.
I was going to make Apple Pancake, but we usually only make that for breakfast and no one has been in the mood for it. So here is Apple Crisp (with less apples than in the recipe). I'm not sure what I was thinking... I love this recipe. Our school use to make it for lunch a few times a month. I got the recipe from my sister who got it from our old HomeEc teacher. That teacher's family owned a local (famous) candy store, which is no longer in business.
Apple Crisp
5 c sliced, pared tart apples
1 c brown sugar
3/4 c flour
1 t cinnamon
1/2 c butter
3/4 c cooking oats (oatmeal)

Combine flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter and then add and stir in oat meal. Set aside. Melt another tablespoon of butter in your cast iron, or add melted butter to a pie dish. Add sliced apples. Top with oat mixture and press it down onto the apples. Bake at 350 for 45 - 50 minutes. Serve warm. Enjoy!


  1. Yum! I think I'll try this recipe tomorrow. I just took some apples out of the freezer, and was debating of what to make with them tomorrow. It is not supposed to get much over 0 degrees, so it will be a good day to have the oven going.

  2. That looks delicious and such a simple recipe! I love apple crisp and a heavy skillet too. I think there might be a typo in the recipe. Is it 3/4 cups flour or 3.4 cups flour?

  3. Yummm! And I can just imagine the aroma! Looks almost exactly like my Apple Crisp Recipe except I use a cup each of flour and oats.

    I think I'm gonna make this this week... I've got lots of frozen apple chunks in the freezer... thanks!

  4. That looks tasty. Thank you for visiting. The wooden village was one of those toys that we just always had, so I can't think how old that makes it!

  5. I messed up with the one measurement but have fixed it, yes it is supposed to be 3/4 cup. Thanks for catching that. :)


Thank you for your comments <3
