  • 1
    Heat the oven to 325o F and arrange a rack in the middle. coat 6 (6oz)remekins with butter and evenly space them on a baking sheet. Devide almonds amoung the ramekins. ( I have made this as mini-cakes by putting them in buttered muffin tins.

    Remove the pan from the heat and carfully place about 2 tbls. of the carmel in each ramekin. (Work quickly --the carmel will start to set up after a few minutes.) Divide the aple pieces amoung the ramekins. leaving any juice in the bowl; set the ramekins aside.

    Return the mixer to low speed, add the milk, and mix just incorporated. Add the flour mixture and mix on low, about 30 seconds; do not over mix. Evenly spoon the batter over the apples and carmel. (If using muffin tins, follow the same procedure on a smaller scale.) bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
