  • Toss apple slices with lemon juice in a bowl and set aside.

  • Combine butter, sugar, and vanilla sugar in a large bowl and beat using an electric blender until pale and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl and mix on low speed. Fold apple slices into the batter.

  • Spread batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract instead of vanilla sugar.
