  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour 3 tablespoons melted butter into an 8″ square pan; tilt pan to coat evenly.  Sprinkle in brown sugar, then arrange apple slices in a layer.

Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  In another bowl, beat together white sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Add flour mixture alternately with milk, stirring well after each addition.  Pour into pan, spreading carefully to avoid disturbing apple slices.  (The pan will be very full)

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.  Immediately invert pan onto a serving plate.
