Wash the apples, peel them and slice into quarters. Remove the core.
Cut slices into the apple, stopping just before you cut through the bottom. (This keeps the slices connected at the bottom of the apple.)
Press the apple slices into your desired pattern or as shown on the cake mixture.

Bake it into the preheated oven to 170°C on the bottom rack for 40-45 minutes.
Please do test if the cake is done by using a skewer and poke it in the middle to see that it comes out clean.
Every oven is different and cook times may vary a little.
Remove the cake from the oven and sift some cinnamon powder on it and set aside to cool.

After it gets cool completely, invert it and top it lightly to remove the cake.
Slice your apple cake and serve. If you want you can dust powdered sugar on it.
