Honest Abe Living Magazine features Cooking with Lodge Cast Iron recipes in each issue along with photos of log cabins, log homes and timber frame homes.


  • 1/4  cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4  cup milk
  • 1 apple (Hannah prefers Golden Delicious)
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1  large egg
  • 1/4  cup all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Melt the butter in a 5-inch cast iron skillet over low heat.
  2. While the butter melts, pour the milk into a 2-cup measuring cup.  Peel the apple, then cut it off the core into 4 pieces.  Cut each piece lengthwise into thin slices.  In a small bowl, toss the apple slices with the sugar and cinnamon until well coated.
  3. Pour half the melted butter into the milk and whisk well.
  4. Add the apple slices and any loose sugar in the bowl to the hot butter in the skillet.  Cook the apple slices over medium-low to low heat, turning them a few times, until softened; the sugar and butter will get nicely browned and bubbly.  Remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. Add the egg to the milk mixture and whisk to combine.  Add the flour and salt and whisk until the batter is smooth.  Pour the batter over the apples in the skillet, covering them.
  6. Bake until the pancake puffs up and gets golden on top, with patches of brown, about 10 minutes.  Enjoy the pancake straight from the skillet or invert it onto a serving plate.Serves 1 generously
