instructionsFor the Cornbread Cake: Grease a 9-inch spring form pan, line with parchment paper and grease the parchment. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
ingredients 3 tablespoons Butter 4 Fuji or Gala Apples (medium diced) Salt
instructionsFor the Brown Butter Apples: In a large saute pan, add the butter and cook over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Toss in the apples and season with a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until just slightly softened.
ingredients 1/2 cup Butter (softened) 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt 2 Eggs (separated) 3/4 cup Sugar
instructions Beat the butter, yogurt, egg yolks, and sugar until pale and creamy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
ingredients 2 cups Almond Flour 3/4 cup Fine Cornmeal 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
instructions In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. Whisk together the almond flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, careful not to over whisk. Stir in half the apples and then gently fold in the egg whites.
instructions Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Test with a cake tester. The tester should come out mostly clean, but most importantly, the cake should pull away from the sides of the pan slightly. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack, leaving in the pan.
ingredients 1 Orange (zest and juice)
instructions Return the apples to the stove and combine the orange juice and zest with the apples. Simmer for 2 minutes. Pierce the top of the cake with a cake tester and pour the warm apples over the cake. Leave to cool completely before taking out of the pan.
