Farmhouse Apple Cake
8 tablespoons unsalted butter – 1 tablespoon for greasing pan, plus 7 more
1/2 cup whole milk
5 Golden Delicious apples
2 large eggs
1-1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 9 or 10-inch springform pan. You can also wrap the bottom of the pan with tin foil so it doesn’t leak.
Measure the milk into a microwavable measuring cup. Cut 7 tablespoons of butter into pieces and add to the milk. Microwave for a minute or two, until the butter is just melted. Set aside to cool.
Thinly Slice 5-6 Apples of your choice. If the apples are large, use less amount..
Beat the eggs and sugar in a large bowl with a wire wisk until the sugar is dissolved. This take about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour, then add the milk-butter mixture and the vanilla. Blend thoroughly. Quickly stir in the baking powder.
Fold in the sliced apples and pour the mixture into the pan.
Place the pan directly on the floor of the gas oven for 10 minutes. Transfer the pan to the center rack and bake until cake is well browned on top and knife inserted into the center comes out clean, for about an hour longer.
If you have an electric oven, place the pan on the lowest rack for the entire cooking time.
Place the cake on a cooling rack. When cool enough to handle, run a thin knife around the cake and remove the spring-form ring. Serve warm topped with some Ice Cream or Whipped Cream...OR Both!!!
