Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9″ round cake pan.

Start by peeling, coring and slicing your apples into a large bowl.

Drizzle with 4 tbsp melted butter and toss gently.

Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and make sure everything is well combined.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In another bowl beat together the egg, milk, butter and almond extract.

Combine the wet ingredients with the flour mixture.

Spread the apples over the bottom of your prepared pan.

Spread the batter over top of the apple slices.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tester comes out clean when inserted in center of the cake.

Wait at least 30 minute for the cake to cool before inverted it onto your serving plate.  The best way to do this is place a plate upside down over the top of the pan and carefully flipping the cake.  You may need to tap the sides to help loosen it up.
