In a 10 inch Cast Iron Skillet melt 1 stick of Butter and add 1C Sugar and 5 diced apples (Original recipe recommends Golden Delicious, I used whatever it was I had, which was probably Gala.)
Add 1 tsp. Apple Pie Spice (Since I was at the cabin with a limited spice cabinet I only added some cinnamon. Just sayin’.)
Cook apples until golden and bubbly and thickened.
Yummmmm. Oh, I also added about 2Tbs of Vermont Maple Syrup because, well, we were in Vermont.
While the apples are getting golden and bubbly, mix together 1 1/2C Buttermilk Pancake Mix (I used Krusteaze), 1C Milk, 1/4C Sugar and 4 oz (or more – you never can have too much cheese, says Roy) Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese.
Spoon the batter over the bubbling apples, and put the skillet into a 350 degree oven.
Bake for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
We enjoyed it just the way it came out of the pan, but I bet a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be just about perfect!
PS – this was pretty darn good for breakfast the next morning, too. 🙂
