Cake Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 9 x 2-inch deep round cake pan; set aside.

  1. Core the Michigan apples but do-not-peel. Cut into ½-inch thick wedges.
  2. Toss together Michigan apples, Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple mixture and sauté 5-6 minutes or until crisp tender and golden. Cool completely.
