Greek apple pie cake

My parents in law came to visit today, so I made this cake. We call it an apple pie in my Greek hometown, but it’s more of a cake really. It’s very easy and fast to make.

Ingredients (for 8 )
* 3 eggs
* 1/3 cup of sugar
* 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
* 1 big apple (or 2 smaller ones)
* 1 cup of general purpose flour
* 3 teaspoons of baking powder
* 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

1. In a large bowl add all ingredients except the apple(s).
2. Using an electrical mixer, mix for 2-3 minutes on high power until the batter becomes somewhat fluid. Add more flour or some water to get the right balance.
3. Preheat oven at 390 F (200 C). Add the batter in an oven dish (the batter should be half an inch tall while on the dish).
4. Peel the apple, remove its kernels, and cut it vertically in very thin slices. Place the slices on top of the batter. The batter should be “thick” enough to keep the apple slices afloat, but also fluid enough too.
5. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Place on rack to cool. Eat warm or cold.

Yes, I only left Greece 12 years ago (I am 34). I lived most of my life there.
