For the Apples:

6 large apples – peeled and sliced
Dashes of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
½ cup of sugar
Zest of ½ lemon
Juice of ½ lemon

For the Cake:

2 cups all-purpose flour – sifted
½ cup of sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup buttermilk

Graham Cracker Crumb Topping:

4 sheets of graham crackers
5 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

In a large bowl combine the apples and all of the apple ingredients and let them sit in the bowl for about 1 hour.

In a separate bowl combine the sifted flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.

Drain the juice from the apple bowl and reserve it for later.

In a separate smaller bowl combine the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, lemon juice and the reserved liquid from the apples. Mix together well and then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Butter a baking pan and line the bottom with the apples. Top the apples with the cake batter.

In a small saucepan melt the butter with the brown sugar and crumble the graham crackers in the melted butter and brown sugar. Sprinkle this on top of the cake batter.

Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the tooth pick test comes out clean.

This is a very easy and delicious partner for a good cup of coffee.

Enjoy with Love & Blessings,
