You can also substitute apricots or pears instead of apples. Any fruit that can be layered like apples will work well.

If you don't have caster sugar available you can make your own. Place regular sugar in a blender or small food processor and pulverize for about 30 seconds to create superfine sugar and then measure what you need for the recipe.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F (160°/ 325°F convection). Grease a square deep 24cm|10" baking pan or dish and line the base with parchment paper.
Peel, core and slice the apples and toss with the lemon juice. This will prevent the apples from turning brown.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs until blended.
Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold gently into the mixture. Spoon into the prepared pan.
Bake for 55-60 minutes, until the edges are golden and the centre is firm (a toothpick comes out clean). Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Eat warm or place on a wire rack to cool completely.
