  • Ingredients 5 large egg yolks2 medium tart apples, peeled, cored and halved1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened1-1/4 cups sugar2 cups all-purpose flour2 tablespoons cornstarch2 teaspoons cream of tartar1 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 cup 2% milkConfectioners' sugar View Recipe Directions Preheat oven to 350°. Let egg yolks stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Starting 1/2 in. from one end, cut apple halves lengthwise into 1/4-in. slices, leaving them attached at the top so they fan out slightly. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, cream of tartar, baking powder and salt twice. Gradually beat into creamed mixture. Add milk; mix well (batter will be thick). Spread batter into a greased 9-in. springform pan wrapped in a sheet of heavy-duty foil. Gently press apples, round side up, into batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs, 45-55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Loosen sides from pan with a knife; remove foil. Cool 1 hour longer. Remove rim from pan. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
