Recipe Ingredients for Caramelized Apple-Pecan Cake

4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup pecan halves
2 large apples, like Fuji, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Caramelized Apple-Pecan Cake

  1. Use a little butter to grease a 10-inch glass pie plate. Arrange 1/4 cup pecan halves in a pattern in pie plate. Arrange apple slices over and around pecans, in a single layer in a pattern. Scatter any extra slices randomly on top.

  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, finely grind remaining pecan halves. Mix with flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

  3. Whisk 1 cup sugar and remaining salt together in a skillet and mix with 1/3 cup water. Cook over medium-high heat, without stirring, until mixture turns amber. Swirl pan from time to time if necessary. Immediately pour caramel over apples in pie pan.

  4. With a mixer, cream remaining butter and remaining sugar together. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract. Fold in flour mixture. Spread batter over apples. Bake 30 minutes, until nicely browned. Cool.

  5. Run a knife around edges and invert cake onto a serving dish, one that is heatproof if you want to warm cake before serving. Serve with ice cream.
