For topping:

    Unsalted butter – 3 tbsp

    Packed light brown sugar- ½ cup

    Apples, peeled, cored, and cut into thin wedges - 1 lb

For biscuit cake:

    All-purpose flour - 1 cup

    Granulated sugar- ¼ cup

    Baking powder – 1 tsp

    Baking soda- ½ tsp

    Salt – ½ tsp

    Cinnamon – ½ tsp

    Cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces – 5 tbsp

    Well-shaken buttermilk- ½ cup

Accompaniment: crème fraîche or sour cream (optional)



First, you need to preheat oven to 425°F.

Make topping:

Heat butter in an ovenproof 10-inch heavy skillet (preferably well-seasoned cast-iron) over moderate heat until foam subsides. Stir in brown sugar and remove from heat. Spread mixture evenly in skillet and arrange apples, overlapping, in 1 layer.

Make cake:

Blend flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, and cinnamon in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Transfer to a bowl and add buttermilk, stirring just until mixture is moistened.

Drop batter on top of apples and gently spread, leaving a 1-inch border around edge of skillet. (Cake needs room to expand.)

Bake cake in middle of oven until golden brown and firm to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool cake in skillet on a rack 3 minutes, then invert onto a platter. Replace any apples that stick to skillet on cake.

Serve warm with sour cream or crème fraîche
