Marsala Apple Cake
Marsala Apple Cake
10 tbsp. softened butter, divided
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 large Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled
and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup Marsala wine
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted*
Crème fraîche or lightly sweetened whipped
cream (optional)
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 35 to 40 minutes

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine 1/4 cup (4 tbsp.) butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until mixture no longer separates, about 4 minutes. Pour into prepared pan and arrange apple slices on top. In a medium bowl, beat remaining 6 tbsp. butter until light and fluffy; beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir together dry ingredients in a small bowl. Stir together milk and Marsala; add dry ingredients to butter mixture alternately with milk mixture, beginning and ending with dry ingredients and beating well after each addition. Stir in walnuts and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove ring from pan and invert cake onto a serving plate. Serve warm with crème fraîche or lightly sweetened whipped cream, if desired.

Makes 10 servings.

*To toast walnuts, cook on a baking sheet at 375°F for 5 to 10 minutes, checking and stirring frequently. Or, cook in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently
