    16 servings

  • Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • GINGERBREAD:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup hot water
  • Warmed applesauce, optional
  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place butter in a 12-in. cast-iron or ovenproof skillet. Place in oven until butter is melted, 4-5 minutes; carefully swirl to coat evenly. Sprinkle with pecans and brown sugar; drizzle with molasses. Arrange apple slices in a single layer over sugar, cut side down.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then molasses. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, ginger, salt and cloves; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in hot water.
  • Pour over apples. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm with applesauce, if desired.
