DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Butter a 9 ½" to 10" (2" deep) cast-iron skillet; or a 9" square cake pan.
  • Combine the apples with the brown sugar, apple juice concentrate (do not dilute), spices, and salt. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Mix the warm milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Pour into the prepared skillet.
  • Spoon the apple mixture onto the batter. For the best appearance, make sure the apples are distributed a little more heavily towards the edges of the pan.
  • Sprinkle with coarse sparkling sugar, if desired.
  • Bake for about 50 to 60 minutes, till it's light brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Loosen the edges of the cake from the pan, and cool for another 20 minutes or so.
