Caramel-glazed Apple Cake
1. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and
sugar, then cut in the butter. Beat in the egg and
milk. 2. 375 oven. Line a 9x13" pan with a single
piece of foil, allowing the edges of the foil to hang
over the edges of the pan. Lightly butter the foil. 3.
Spread the batter evenly in the pan. Arrange the apple
slices of the batter in rows, overlapping them
slightly and alternating the direction of the rows.
Combine the sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch and
sprinkle this mixture over the apples. Drizzle the
melted butter over all. 4. Bake for 50 minutes, or
until the apples are nicely browned and glazed and a
cake tester comes out clean. Remove cake to a wire
rack and cool it in the pan. 5. To serve, hold the
foil edges and gently lift the cake from the pan.
Transfer the cake to a serving tray and gently peel
away the foil. Cut the cake into 4" strips between the
apple rows. Can substitute firm ripe peaches,
nectarine, or pears for the apples.
