3 Apples
2 Tbs ground Cinnamon (or according to your taste)
1/2 C Vegetable Oil
1/2 C Sugar
2 Eggs (preferably room temperature)
1 C Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 C Milk (optional)
1 Tbs Sugar (optional, preferably golden yellow)


Grease and flour one 5x5 inch pan (or any pan of size roughly 25 square inches). Peel and core the apples. Cut them into thin (thickness of about 5mm) half circles. Sprinkle the cinnamon over apples and toss to coat. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375°F. Sift the flour and baking powder together. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix vegetable oil and sugar using a whisk. Mix in the eggs, one at time and whisk well after each addition. Gently mix in the flour mixture. Add the milk and whisk well (optional). Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Layer apple slices over the batter, tightly (such that each slice half-covers the other). Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar over the apple slices (optional). Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes. The cake is ready when the toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Cut and serve.
