Apple Pudding Cake

Boiling apple cider or apple juice is poured over this cake just before baking, giving it a delicious gooey bottom. Also, this cake is made with less added fat than most conventional dessert cake.

1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 large egg
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups chopped apple
1 cup apple cider
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
Optional Streusel:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter

Butter an 8-inch square baking dish. Heat oven to 350°.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, 1 cup brown sugar, milk, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients and chopped apples until well blended. Spread in prepared baking pan.

In a small saucepan, bring apple cider, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/2 cup brown sugar to a boil. Pour slowly and carefully over the batter. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with prepared streusel (below) about 10 minutes before done.
Optional streusel: Combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons butter.
