DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Pour the melted butter into a 10-inch tart pan and swirl it around so it evenly covers the bottom.
  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan over low heat until it is hot but not boiling.
  • Keep it hot over very low heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg with the sugar.
  • Then whisk in the cornmeal, flour, and salt.
  • Whisking vigorously, slowly add the hot milk, stirring until combined.
  • Strew the apple slices over the surface of the tart pan.
  • Whisk the cornmeal mixture again and pour it over the apples, shaking the tart pan if necessary, so that the batter evenly covers the surface.
  • The apple slices will stick well above the batter.
  • Bake in the center of the oven until the cake is deep golden on the edges and a lighter golden in the center, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • When the corn cake is cooked, remove it from the oven and serve immediately.
