From the Test Kitchen

This delectable dessert—featuring fall's favorite fruit, the apple—gets an umami lift from a touch of miso paste that we're stirring into caramel and cream before drizzling over the cake.

instructions
Prepare the apple
1 Prepare the apple

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Wash and dry the apple. Quarter and core the apple, then thinly slice lengthwise, ensuring all slices are the same size.

Make the batter
2 Make the batter

In a bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Place the butter in a large bowl. Working in 30 second increments, microwave on high, or until melted. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and half the cream. Whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Add the sliced apple and stir to thoroughly coat.

Bake the cake
3 Bake the cake

Lightly grease a loaf pan. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread in an even layer, ensuring the apples and batter are evenly dispersed, the apples are laying flat, and that any apples at the top of the cake are covered with batter. Bake 35 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool about 20 minutes, or until room temperature.
