This is my favourite cake recipe. It's easy to make and absolutely delicious. For an elegant appearance, I use a round baking dish and arrange the apple slices in concentric circles, starting from the outer edges of the cake. Left over cinnamon-apples are great sauted and served with icecream or added to hot breakfast cereals.
