Apple Upside Down Cake
1 1/2 cups apples (more or less)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon almond flavoring

Cinnamon Sugar:
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine 1 cup sugar with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. (If more flavor is desired, sprinkle sugar with a drop of vanilla and a pinch of ginger before mixing.)

Peel, core, and very coarsely chop 1 1/2 cups of apples. Green apples, such as Granny Smith should be used as they retain more of their shape, while other types of apples might turn to applesauce. Prepare enough chopped apple to cover the bottom of the pan you'll be using and have a layer of apples 1-2 inches thick.

In a loaf pan or deep cake pan, bake the apples in a preheated 325°F oven until soft. Remove from oven. Sprinkle the apples with the sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat well.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 egg, 1/3 teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon almond extract (vanilla may be substituted).

Pour batter over apples and return pan to a preheated 350°F oven. Bake until cake tests done.
