Dessert: Apples, Cognac, and Cardamon in cake that is

Here’s a pick me upper I think I am going to bake for tonight bypassing dinner all together. I think I owe it to myself to indulge a little. And if you are feeling the same way I do, then by all means….

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cognac (Calvados, rum, or bourbon work well too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 3 medium Honeycrisp apples
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
