What you need:
(click + to add ingredients to your shopping list)
+ 2 Tbsp. plus 1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened and divided
+ 2 Tbsp. plus 1/2 c. sugar
+ 3 med. Chilean Granny Smith apples (6 to 7 oz. each) peeled and thinly sliced (about 4 c.)
+ 3 Tbsp. maple syrup, divided
+ 2 large eggs
+ 3/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. unsifted all-purpose flour
+ 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
+ 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
+ 1/4 tsp. salt
+ 1/2 c. coarsely chopped pecans
What to do:
1. In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. each of the butter and sugar over medium high heat until the sugar begins to turn golden.
2. Add apples; cook and stir until tender and just begin to brown, 5 to 7 min.. Remove from heat.
3. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter an 8-inch round baking pan; lightly coat with flour.
4. Drizzle the bottom of the pan with 2 Tbsp. of the maple syrup. Arrange half of the apple slices in a circular pattern to cover the bottom.
5. In a bowl, beat remaining 1/2 c. butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt; beat on low speed just until combined; fold in pecans.
6. Spoon half of the batter carefully over the apple slices in the pan; smooth into an even layer; top with the remaining apple slices, and then the remaining batter.
7. Bake until the center springs back when gently pressed, about 35 min. Cool on a wire rack for 10 min.; loosen edge and invert onto a serving plate.
8. Drizzle remaining 1 Tbsp. maple syrup over top. Serve warm.
