  • Preheat oven to 350°F Grease and flour pan, preferably an 8½-inch or 9-inch spring form pan.
  • Sift together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl beat butter until light. Gradually beat in sugar until fluffy. Beat in first egg, then second egg. Beat in ¼ cup of flour mixture, then third egg. Slowly mix in remaining flour mixture, alternating with the ¼ cup of milk or water. Pour into prepared pan and smooth top.
  • Peel apples; core and cut each into 6 to 8 wedges. Mix the ½ cup sugar with cinnamon. Roll apple wedges in cinnamon sugar and press wedges into cake batter all over the entire cake. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over the top of the cake, and if desired strew a few slivered almonds over the top (optional).
  • Bake approximately 1 – 1¼ hours, more or less, depending on pan size, until cake tests done when a cake tester is inserted in the center of the cake. Cool briefly, then remove from pan.
