At first glance, and while it's still in the pan, doesn't this look a bit like Dorie's French Apple Cake? (See photo at bottom of page.) Putting it together was a bit the same too. It seemed over-laden with apples and not enough batter. But it was a much stiffer dough than Dorie's.
The recipe was in the October issue of Martha Stewart's Living and the magazine pictured them plain, but I added a little glaze with some Calvados in it.
Of course. :)
Martha Stewart's Living, October 2012, adapted from The Apple Lover's Cookbook by Amy Traverso
1 stick salted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch cubes (I used Granny Smith)
Preheat oven to 350. Generously butter an 8 x 11 baking dish.
Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In your mixer, beat the egg, sugar and butter until pale and light. By hand, add the walnuts and apples. Then add the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Spread the batter in the pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack then cut into 12 bars.
Glaze if you wish. Confectioners sugar mixed with almond or vanilla flavoring, or a little Calvados.
Bars can be stored airtight up to 5 days.
