Le Gateau De Mamy (Grandmothers Apple Cake)
From "Chocolate and Zucchini" by Clotilde Dusoulier

1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 lb baking apples (about 2)
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350f. Melt butter in microwave or saucepan. Use 1 Tbsp to grease an 8in round cake pan. Combine flour baking powder and salt in small bowl. Wash peel and core the apples. Cut in eighths and arrange over bottom of pan.

In medium bowl whisk eggs and sugar until fluffy. Add the flour mix and whisk until combined. Add the melted butter and whisk some more. Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 40min until top is set and golden brown.

Cool on rack for 10min, then run a knife around the edge to loosen and flip the cake onto a plate. Flip onto your serving plate let cool a little and serve room temp.

You can make the cake with other fruit too.

Eta: I tried this on October 1st. Instead of apples I ended up using the lonely nectarines that have been lurking in the back of the fridge for a long time. Cooked it in the big sturdy pie-plate :) It reminds me a lot of the apple oven pancakes I used to make. Fairly dense, and a bit eggy. Eleanor really liked it (it reminded her of the cakes her grandmother used to make), and everyone ate it up so I will call it a success!
