Apple Lady's Apple Cake

½ C flour
1/3 C sugar
1 T baking powder
1/8 t salt
½ t vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
2 T vegetable oil
1/3 C whole milk
4 apples, cored, peeled, sliced thinly

1/3 C sugar
1 egg, beaten
3 T melted butter

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend together the eggs, oil, milk and then add the wet ingredients to the dry. Add in the apple slices and mix well.

Spoon the apple mixture into a well-greased 8-inch springform pan. The original recipe calls for a 9-inch springform pan. I used a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom…. Whatever… just adjust the baking times accordingly. Be sure to place your pan on a baking sheet!

Bake for about 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

In the meantime: Mix the topping ingredients. Spoon the topping over the cake and bake for another 10 minutes. Be careful to watch the cake closely on this step. You don’t want to over brown the topping.
