  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup melted butter

  • 2 cups apples - peeled, cored and chopped

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place an 8- or 9-inch cast iron skillet into the oven to preheat.

  2. Whisk together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a bowl; set aside.

  3. Beat together eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Toss apples and pecans in the flour mixture, then stir into the egg mixture until combined. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the preheated skillet, swirling to coat the pan.

  4. Pour the batter into the hot pan, and replace into the oven. Bake until the sides are dry and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownie comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool in the skillet for 20 minutes before removing and slicing.

Cook's Note

If you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can use a well-greased frying pan or other skillet with any non-metal parts wrapped in a double layer of tinfoil — or just use a regular casserole or brownie pan, just don't preheat glass or ceramic! When you add the batter it will shatter.
