Apple-Blackberry Cake

Served on an Astier de Villatte cake stand, a delectable apple-blackberry cake is the grand finale.

  • servings: 12

Ingredients

  • Granulated sugar, for pan
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan, plus 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 McIntosh apples (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled, cored, and cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) blackberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Whipped cream, for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch springform pan, and dust with granulated sugar. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together melted butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, the milk, and eggs in another bowl. Whisk into flour mixture.

  2. Step 2

    Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Arrange apple wedges over batter, and sprinkle with blackberries. Gently press fruit into batter. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar and the cinnamon, and sprinkle over fruit. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.

    Great! So I'm not the only one who lives in Mexico and loves Martha Stewart's recipes! Going to make the bramble-apple cake. I know that almost all the muffin recipes from Martha are amazing, so I guess it must be good too.

    Delicious and simple to make. Reminded me of the strawberry cake but McIntosh apples make the cake awesome! I wasn't crazy with the blackberries and will consider another fruit. Next time I will place larger slices very close to the edge and smaller ones near the center to aoid a raw look in center--but with great flavor. The sprinkling of sugar on top and sides and bottom of pan added a special touch and treat.

    This was okay - but nothing so special that I would make it again.
