6 Apples, peeled, cored, sliced thin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 lb. unsalted butter, browned
5 eggs
1 lb. sugar
12 oz. flour
1 teaspoon salt

Place butter in medium pan on medium low heat

While butter is browning, prepare apples. Place sliced apples in medium bowl and toss with the lemon juice. Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon, toss to coat.

Place apples into a 9”x13” buttered baking dish and set aside.

Keep eye on butter!

In another medium bowl sift together flour and salt, set aside.

When butter is browned, pour into a large bowl making sure to scrape out all
of the brown bits. Whisk in the 1lb. sugar and let cool slightly. Quickly whisk
in 1 egg at a time making sure not to let eggs scramble.

Sift the flour and salt into the butter and eggs mixture a little at a time until
all incorporated and smooth.

Pour batter over apples, spread evenly and top with cinnamon sugar.

Uncover and bake for 15-20 minutes more until batter is firm and toothpick
inserted to batter comes out clean.
