1-1/2 cups {about 2 medium} gala apples

1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided

1 cup dark brown sugar

7 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided {6T for the cake 1T for the glaze}

2 whole eggs

2/3 cup whole milk

1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/8 teaspoon fresh nutmeg

6 teaspoons honey


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. line and spray (I like to use my Misto) a 9-inch round cake pan.

Core and dice up 1-1/2 cups of apples, that’s roughly about 1-1/2 to 2 apples.

Toss the diced apples with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and place them in the bottom of your prepared pan.

In the same bowl add 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter and brown sugar. Mix until crumbly, about one minute.

Beat in the eggs {one at a time}. Then, with the mixer on low, blend in the vanilla and whole milk.

Combine the flour, remaining cinnamon and baking powder. Grate in 1/8 teaspoon of fresh nutmeg, stir.

Add in the dry ingredients and mix by hand until combined thoroughly, then pour over apples and spread evenly.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes before inverting onto a cake plate.

Meanwhile in a small bowl measure and add the 6 teaspoons of honey and the remaining tablespoon of butter. Zap it in the microwave for 20 seconds until melted and then drizzle it all over the cake cake.

Cut into eighths and serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Serve with hot cider, coffee or tea! 🙂
