  • Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  • Add brown sugar and simmer over moderate heat, stirring, four minutes, then swirl in salt.
  • Remove from heat and pour into the bottom of your cake pan.
  • Make circles of overlapping apple slices on top of the caramel.
  • Chop any remaining slices and place them in the gaps.
  • Make the batter: Using a mixer, blend 1/2 cup butter and the sugar on medium-low speed.
  • Increase the speed to high and cream until light and fluffy.

  • Pour the batter into the pan.

  • Let cool on a rack for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn out onto a platter .
  • Serve warm or cool with very softly whipped cream.

    I love anything with apples, and this looks beyond tasty! I suspect by end of the holiday season I will be wearing a new size!
