Made with a buttery dough and a wet custard, the two layers literally combine in the oven, creating a moist, incredibly delicious cake. When topped with a heavy dusting of cinnamon and confectioner’s sugar, all feels right with the world. Right… and very apple-tastic.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with dough blade, add flour, sugar and baking powder. Pulse to combine.
  3. Add hunks of butter and pulse until pea sized pieces form.
  4. While pulsing, stream in the milk until a soft, shaggy dough forms one that can easily be pressed together into a ball.
  5. Take the dough and press it into a greased and floured 8″ cake pan.
  6. Then slice the apples and press them firmly into the dough, overlapping as you go.
  7. Whisk together the topping ingredients and pour it on top of the cake.
  8. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Recipe Notes

Use a 8″ cake pan with standard 2″ inch sides (no shorter). Do not use a springform pan, as the milk mixture will certainly leak out. The easiest way to remove the cake from cake pan is to let cool until just warm, run a butter knife around the edges, invert onto one dish, then quickly onto a second dish (the serving platter). Comes out perfect every time!
