Skillet Apple Fritter is a simple, but sweet, ooey-gooey treat that is a layer of cinnamon and sugar-coated biscuits topped with juicy chopped sweetened apples! If you are looking for the traditional deep-fried treat here is my classic Apple Fritters recipe.
Skillet Apple Fritter Bread
This Skillet Apple Fritter gives you all the flavors you would expect in a fritter, but baked and not fried. It is very similar to my Apple Fritter Monkey Bread. You can always try my Apple Fritter Bread for another delicious, baked way to enjoy an apple fritter treat.
Ingredients & Substitutions
Apples: I prefer to use Granny Smith apples when baking because they hold their shape well. You could also try this recipe with Braeburn, pink lady apples, or Honeycrisp.
Biscuits: Look for flaky buttermilk biscuits to use.
Toppings: Although the toppings are optional, they are worth adding! Try the dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and some caramel sauce.
Can I Use a Different?
You could definitely make this treat in a 9×13-inch baking dish. The cooking time should be the same.
Can I Use a Different Fruit?
Yes, absolutely. This would be delicious with strawberries, blueberries, even banana. However, you may want to adjust the amounts and amount of cinnamon, if any.
Can I Make the Bread From Scratch?
Sure! If you don’t want to use store-bought biscuits, I recommend starting with the dough recipe in my Homemade Monkey Bread.
Skillet Apple Fritter
- 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- ½ cup (100 g) light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 cans (8-count each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, flaky
- ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-inch, oven-safe skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Peel, core, and dice the apples.
- In a medium bowl combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Toss to coat apples evenly.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add apple mixture and cook until apples are tender (about 5 minutes).
- While apples are cooking, cut each biscuit into 6 equal pieces.
- In a medium bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
- Roll each piece into a ball and roll it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place the biscuits into the prepared oven-safe skillet.
- Spoon the apple mixture on top of the biscuits. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

This looks amazing! We live outside of the United States and don’t have access to refrigerated biscuits. Is there a homemade option that would work instead?
Can you tell me what refrigerated biscuits are please, or what is similar. I’m in Australia.
Hi, Cheri! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. We used storebought buttermilk biscuits for this recipe. I hope that helps, and have a great day!
