 ½ cup (115 g) butter at room temperature
 ½ cup (100 g) sugar
 2 eggs
 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour
 1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
 About 6 apples, peeled, cut in two and thinly sliced
 ½ cup (125 ml) apricot jam or jelly OR apple jelly
 Icing sugar (optional)

1

Set the oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven at 350 °F (180°C). Butter a spingform pan.

2

In a medium or large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until homogenous.

3

In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder and mix in batter until just blended not more.

5

Liquefy jam or jelly over low heat in a small saucepan or in the microwave. Glaze the cake with the jam with a pastry brush. Let cool 30 minutes before serving.

6

For a glamourous, put a couple of spoon of icing sugar in a sieve and shake the sieve over the cake just before serving. This step is done at the last minute otherwise the icing sugar will disappear in the glaze.
