An Apple for the Teacher

This Sunday I took Apple Cake to Sunday School so that there would be an option other than dough nuts! This was a really easy recipe to make. It got rave reviews from the class.

Apple Cake

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
5 1/2 tablesppons butter, toom temp
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 medium granny smith apple

Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a 9 inch baking dish or pie pan. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon and set aside. In the bown of a mixer, cream the butter and remaining sugar. Beat in the egg until blended. Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk, beting until combined.

Spread half the mixture in the baking dish. Lay the apple slices on the batter so they just cover the batter. Sprinkle half the sugar cinnamon mixture over the apples. Put remaining batter over apples. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on top. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and apples start to bubble. Remove from oven and enjoy!

That looks so good. Better than a plain old apple and much better for you than dough nuts! =)
