    1. In a bowl beat eggs and egg white until fluffy. Stir in the sugar and vanilla sugar. Fold in the flour and baking powder with a spatula. Then add the oil and fold in with a spatula. The mixture might seem oily, don't worry.
    2. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and sprinkle with cinnamon. Pour in the mixture and spread evenly.
    3. Peel, core and cut the apples into quarters or eighths, depending on size. Drizzle with lemon juice.
    4. Place the apple pieces on top of the cake mixture with the cut side up.
    5. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    6. Finely dice the cold butter then mix with the sugar, vanilla sugar and egg yolk and mix well. Sift the flour and bicarb and rub between your fingertips until it looks like crumbs. Sprinkle over the apple mixture.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Immediately after removing from the oven drizzle with melted butter.

    I really enjoyed this. Maybe it was a litytle dry but I may have overcooked it a bit. It makes a huge quantity. You need a roasting size pan for it. I think next time I will use half of all the ingredients and make one that will fit into a regular cake tin. But overall we really enjoyed it with cream on top.  -  29 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
