Thompson's Amazing Apple Cake



  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 3/4 cup flour

  • 3 tsp. baking powder

  • 3/4 cup milk

  • apples


  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • 1 cup apple cider

  • 1 tbsp. corn starch

  • 2 tbsp. butter

  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Cream together butter, egg, sugar, & vanilla. Mix the flour & baking powder together separately. To the creamed mixture, alternately add the flour mix & milk to form a batter. Pour the batter into a 9x13" dish and spread evenly. Peel and slice some apples and press a layer of apple slices into the surface of the cake. Mix the topping in a small bowl, then sprinkle evenly over the apples. Bake for 50–60 minutes (if you're using a glass dish, it will be done in 50 minutes).

While the cake it baking, make the apple cider sauce. Mix together apple cider & corn starch in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until thickened and clear. Remove from heat and add butter and lemon juice. Mix and pour over the warm cake. Chill and serve!
