German Apple Cake

This is a delicious cake i stumbled upon when i was looking for apple recipes, and it is so good, i have made two of these cakes, they go very fast. It makes a large cake, and depending on your love of apples, you can use more apples than what is called for, or less.
You can see some of the apples in this picture, The only thing i changed in the original recipe, is that i added Cinnamon and Nutmeg, I can`t imagine apple anything without cinnamon and nutmeg, but the choice is yours. This recipe came from an old cookbook from the 60`s , called Homemakers Cookbook.

German Apple Cake
3 Cups Sugar
1/2 pound butter
2 eggs
1 Cup milk
dash of vanilla ( i used a tsp.)
4 Cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp. nutmeg (optional)
5 big apples, peeled, cored and sliced
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and vanilla, beat. Stir in milk. flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.
Put half the dough in a greased 9x 13x2 5/8 greased cake pan, add apples, cover apples with remaining dough, sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar, generously.
Bake at 350 for an hour and thirty minutes. This may vary, start checking cake afer an hour by sticking a toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean, it`s done. This is wonderful warm from the oven and smothered with whipped cream, or served cold.
Does it get any easier than that?
