60g Butter
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup Milk
1 1/4  SR flour
Small tin of apple pie filling
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon caster sugar

Beat butter, sugar, and vanilla to a cream.
Add the egg and beat well.
Add flour and milk alternatively till mixed in well.

Place mixture in a greased cake tin and place apples on top and sprinkle over half of the cinnamon and sugar mixed together.

Bake in a 180*c oven for 20mins until cooked thru.
Then sprinkle the last half of the cinnamon sugar over the cooked cake.
