What a difference a day makes
Where there used to be rain
Since you said you were mine
How about 3,652.421 days, hmmm? What do you think that much time can do to a person?
5-6 apples, peeled and sliced fairly thin (use a combination of cooking apples)
2 rounded tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Combine the apples, sugar, and cinnamon in a covered container. Toss together, and set aside.
Now the batter:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup V-8 Splash Tropical Blend
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl. Make a well and add the oil, eggs, vanilla and V-8 Splash. Use a wooden spoon to combine wet and dry ingredients, and then beat with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 inch square baking dish with baking nonstick spray. I used an aluminum pan, and placed it on a cookie sheet before sliding into the oven. Spoon half the batter into the pan, then place half the apples over it. Repeat with the remaining batter and apple slices. Cover the entire top of the cake with the crumbs. Put the baking pan in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Check the cake for doneness. If needed, bake another 10 minutes. Place the cake on a rack to cool. Let the cake cool completely before cutting.
