Cake: Beat the eggs together until they are light and frothy; blend them well with the sugar. Beat in the oil. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt and add this to the egg mixture. Add the vanilla; beat well. Peel the apples and slice them thin. Mix them with the sugar and cinnamon.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease a 9 inch by 13 inch pan. Pour in enough batter to cover the bottom well, a little less than half the batter. Arrange the apples evenly over the batter and cover them with the remaining batter. Bake for 1 hour.

Toppings: To serve this as a dessert, spread the cake with whipped cream sweetened with the ¼ cup of sugar and flavored with the cinnamon and rum extract.

To serve it as a coffee cake, brush the top with the melted butter.

Sprinkle a mixture of walnuts, cinnamon and sugar on top. Then place the cake under the broiler for about 2 minutes. Serve it warm.
