Number of Servings: 12


    1 stick Butter, unsalted, melted
    1/2 cup all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
    1/3 cup Instant Grits
    3/4 tsp Baking Powder
    1/2 tsp fine Salt (1tsp if there is none in the grits)
    2 large eggs
    3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
    3 tbsp Bourbon Whiskey
    1 tsp pure Vanilla Extract
    3 cup chopped Apples, fresh with skin


Using a mix of apple varieties (crisp and soft, sweet and tart) will give the cake a surprising taste and texture.


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a springform pan and set on a rimmed baking sheet.

Whisk together the flour, grits, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.

In a separate large bowl, whisk the eggs until foamy. Add the sugar, bourbon, and vanilla and whisk to combine. Whisk in the the flour mixture and melted butter in alternate additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Fold in the apples. (The batter should be very apple-heavy; add more apples if needed.)

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the cake is golden brown, 60-70 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a butter knife around the edge of the pan to loosen, then remove the sides of the pan.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
