2 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups apples, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Whipped cream or ice cream for topping
Combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Preheat oven to 350° F.
Butter a 9-inch-square baking dish. Place sliced apples in the dish and sprinkle with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in the egg. Add the flour mixture, alternating with milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture to make a stiff batter. Spread batter evenly over apples and bake for about 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. You can serve it right out of the pan or invert it onto a serving plate like an upside-down cake, warm or at room temperature. Top with whipped cream or ice cream.
