Recipe: Baked in a tart pan, this cake can be breakfast or dessert
Apple pie is one of my specialties, but even I don’t always want to spend the time to make one. Yet fall baking is all about apples, and there are myriad other ways to celebrate this wonderful fruit.
I went looking for something easy to put together, yet which has all the flavors of apple pie. The homey cake recipe here fits the bill pretty well. It could be served at brunch or for dessert, depending on how you dress it up. The crunchy top is a bonus.
Originally published in Food52’s “Baking” cookbook as Easy-As-Pie Apple Cake, this recipe was featured in the New York Times in 2015 in a roundup of new baking cookbooks.

Dig In: Garden Checklist
For week of Feb. 18:
It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:
* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.
* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.
* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.
* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.
* Dump excess water out of pots.
* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.
* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.
* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.
* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.
* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
