    Raquel Grinnell's Note:

    From pastry chef Stephanie Prida of Balsan in Chicago. She tops it here with glazed apples; but it's a wonderful foil for everything from vanilla ice cream to poached pears. Whatever pairing you choose for this cake, use a mellow, fruity extra-virgin olive oil for baking and save the more peppery oils for the main course.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cake

    Units: US | Metric

    Glazed Apples

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Make the cake: In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar until combined; add the lemon zest, olive oil, milk, brandy and orange juice and whisk again until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until combined.
    3. 3
      Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake the cake, turning halfway through, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Let the cake cool on a rack for 30 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the loaf and invert it onto the rack and let cool completely.
    4. 4
      While the cake cools, make the apples: In a medium skillet, cook the sugar and water over medium heat, swirling the pan (do not stir the sugar and water with a spoon), until dark amber, about 8 minutes. Fold the apples into the caramelized sugar. Add the cider and Calvados and cook over medium heat until the apples are tender and translucent, about 8 minutes.
    5. 5
      Cut the loaf into 8 slices and divide among 8 plates. Garnish with the glazed apples and walnuts and serve immediately.
