This is an old-fashioned french recipe that is typically served with a garlicky salad for a quick and delicious light meal. It's like a crisp corn pancake which tastes like a dessert but treated as a vegetable. There is very little batter to cover the apples, so the result is light and crisp. Don't be afraid to bake the cake until it is just slightly burned on the edges and golden in the center. Serve it immediately upon removing it from the oven! Recipe is from French Farmhouse Cookbook.
