  1. Topping.
  2. It is not necessary to peel the apples, but I do.
  3. Combine the sliced apples,lemon juice,sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Combine dry ingredients - flour,baking powder and salt in a bowl, set aside.
  5. In a large bowl cream butter, add sugar gradually, beat well.
  6. Beat eggs into creamed mixture.
  7. Measure sour cream into a separate bowl, add baking soda, stir together; the cream will rise up and become fluffy.
  8. Add sour cream to the batter alternately with the dry ingredients. Blend well.
  9. Pour half the batter into a greased and floured 9" square cake pan, top with half the apple mixture.
  10. Add remaining batter and arrange rest of the apples on top.
  11. Bake in 325 degree oven for 50-60 minutes.
  12. Especially nice served warm. Enjoy!
