Steps

  • Generously coat a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. Make sure your apples are sliced and ready to go.In a small saucepan, melt 1 stick of butter on low heat. When it begins to bubble, stir in 2/3 cup dark brown sugar. Continue to stir until smooth.
  • Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and vanilla extract. Stirring constantly, leave on heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 minute. Layer the sliced apples into the dish and pour the butter/sugar overtop. Sprinkle with walnuts. Set aside.Preheat oven to 325F degrees.Using a handheld electric mixer, cream one stick butter and 1 cup dark brown sugar until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in milk and mix until just combined. By hand, stir in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, flour, and baking powder. Do not overmix - stir until everything is *just* combined.
  • Pour batter over the apples and bake for at least 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the very middle comes out clean. Allow to cool for exactly ten minutes before inverting onto a large serving dish.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
