How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C).
  • Coat the bottom of a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking oil spray.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the sugar over the bottom of the pan.
  • Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla.
  • In another bowl, mix together the butter and the 1/4 cup of sugar until light. One minute with a stand mixer or two minutes with a hand held mixer.
  • By hand, stir in one-third of the flour mixture and then one-third of the milk mixture just until mixed.
  • Add the remaining flour and milk in 2 additions.
  • Spread the batter in the skillet. It will be thick and a little sticky.
  • If difficult to spread, wet the back of a spoon or ends of your fingers to push the batter out to the edges.
  • Peel and core the apples.
  • Cut them in slices 1/8 inch thick.
  • Starting from the outer edge of the cake, arrange the apples in concentric circles, slightly overlapping over the top of the batter, completely covering it. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle it over the apples.
  • Bake until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Loosen the edges and bottom of the cake, from the pan using a large metal spatula.
  • Place a large plate on the top of the cake.
  • Invert the pan and plate together, then remove the pan.
  • Place another plate on top of the cake and invert again so it is right-side up.
  • Makes 8 servings.
