Honeyed Apple Torte

As this buttery cake bakes, the apples sink into it as though they have been swallowed. Choose medium-size apples for the best presentation. Rome, Winesap, and Newton Pippin will work, too.

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  3. Beat 3/4 cup granulated sugar, butter, brown sugar, and vanilla at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 4 minutes). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add flour mixture to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Pour batter into a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.
