1 cup all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder

In another bowl beat the sugar and butter for a couple of minutes until fluffy and pale.

Transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan and use a spatula to smooth the top.
Scatter the chopped apple over the cake and sprinkle the brown sugar over it.
Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top of the apple cake and bake it for about half an hour or until the top of the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
