    Dry ingredients:
    1.5 cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt

    Wet ingredients:
    2 large eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup appleasauce, unsweetened
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup fresh orange juice

    4 tart-sweet apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/8 inch slices (Granny Smiths and Braeburns work well)
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1.5 tbsp lemon juice


Preheat your oven to 350F and grease/flour a 8x8 cake pan. Set aside.

For the cake batter:
Sift together the dry ingredients. Mix together the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and mix well. Set aside and prepare the filling.

For the filling:
Peel, core and slice your apples into 1/8 inch slices. Sprinkle cut slices of apple with lemon juice to prevent browning. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture and toss to coat apples thoroughly.

To assemble:
In your prepared cake pan, spoon half of your batter into your pan. Next, top the batter with half of the apple mixture. Top the apple layer with most of the rest of the batter. Add another layer of apples and then top this last layer of apples with dots of batter.

Bake in your preheated oven for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pan. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar.

NOTE: This cake is even better the next day.
