I used a 9" springform pan and Honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples. I like to use 2 different kinds of apples in the recipe, but honestly, I've used whatever apples I have in the refrigerator and it comes out fine.

She cites an ATK recipe - the one I found online (for a French apple cake which has that custardy texture) uses 1.5 lb granny smith apples (which works out to ~6 medium apples or 4 large ones) and a 9-in springform.
