Italian Apple Cake

2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup salted butter, melted
½ cup granulated sugar
½ tbsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
2-3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F, and line a 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. Peel and slice the apples, and toss them with the lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until creamy and light. Mix in the eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla, and beat until well-incorporated.
  4. Finally, stir in the baking powder and flour. Stir in the apple slices, and pour the batter into the prepared pan. There will be almost too many apples for the cake batter, this is normal!
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar
