This is a perfect, fragrant and comforting dessert for a chilly fall evening. The recipe comes from Travis, who goes to Uptergrove Public School, and was submitted by the Orillia & Area Nutrition Network. The cake is delicious with vanilla frozen yogurt, and is still good the next day or even two days later.

In medium bowl, beat egg and sugar until thick and light. Beat in oil, apple juice and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture, stirring just until blended (batter will be thick).
In small bowl, mix brown sugar with cinnamon. Arrange apple slices in greased 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan. Sprinkle apples with half the brown sugar mixture. Carefully spread batter over apples; smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture.
