Today is officially the first day of fall! I love fall for 3 reasons: 1. My birthday is in October! 2. the beautiful leaves changing colors. 3. more baking! In honor of the first day of fall, I am sharing with you all one of the sweetest recipes. This recipe may get pretty messy and may not come out as pretty as you want, but it tastes too good!
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
- 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Dash nutmeg
- 2 1/2 cups thinly sliced apples
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, very soft
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup unbleached flour
- 3 tablespoons cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly butter the sides of a 9-inch cake pan (not a springform pan).
- Combine the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small saucepan and boil 30 seconds. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the apples all over and press them down slightly to level them.
- To make the cake, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat until very smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Sprinkle in the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt, and beat 10 seconds. Pour in the milk and beat just until the batter is evenly moistened, about 1 minute. Spoon the batter over the apples and smooth the top.
- Bake 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out dry. Run a knife along the outer edge of the cake to loosen it from the pan. Place a plate over the cake, then flip it over to invert the cake onto the plate. Let the cake cool completely before serving.
