Recipe: Bavarian Apple Cake

Or how to turn this:into this:Ingredients (for one 8"x8" cake):
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 scant cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
For the apple topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 large apples, cored, peeled and sliced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8" square pan.
Beat the sugar and butter together until light. Add the eggs and beat in.
Sift together the flour and baking powder and mix well into the sugar/butter/egg mixture. Mix in the vanilla and spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Mix the cinnamon with the sugar for the topping and stir it into the apples until well coated. Arrange the apple slices on top of the batter.
Bake for one hour or until it tests done with a toothpick. Cool completely, then cover with foil overnight. This step is important for a moist, delicious cake.
Serve as is, or with lots and lots of whipped cream.
