    1. 1
      * , such as Granny Smith, peeled, halved, and sliced (3 cups) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Brush the sides of a 8 x 3 1/4-inch springform pan with the melted butter.
    3. 3
      Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/4 cup flour and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.
    4. 4
      Wrap foil around the pan to prevent leakage. Starting at the outside edge, arrange a ring of apple slices in the pan, slightly overlapping and pointing to the center.
    5. 5
      (It will feel backwards.) Fill in the center with another circle of apples, with some overlap occurring.
    6. 6
      Layer any remaining apple slices evenly, overlapping to prevent the batter from escaping.
    7. 7
      With a wooden spoon or electric mixer, beat together the butter and 1 cup sugar.
    8. 8
      Add the eggs, milk, rum, and vanilla.
    9. 9
      The batter will look curdled.
    10. 10
      Add 1 1/4 cups flour, the nuts, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, beating only until the flour is completely incorporated.
    11. 11
      Pour the batter over the apples and spread evenly.
    12. 12
      Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean, about 70 minutes.
    13. 13
      Cover with a piece of foil if the top begins to brown too quickly.
    14. 14
      Let the cake rest in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then, using a small, flexible knife, gently separate the sides of the cake from the pan.
    15. 15
      Invert the cake on the rack, letting it stay in the pan for another 10 minutes, then remove the pan, lifting it up carefully.

      While this is a good apple cake there are better tasting recipes on zaar (try #136589) I was disappointed in the topping "stresel" and think it needs some of the melted butter mixed in...otherwise it becomes a hard,thin brittle that doesn't work well. I won't make it again without "tinkering" with the topping.
