  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans. Soak the raisins in boiling water while the oven preheats.
  2. Cream together 1/2 cup butter or margarine with 1 cup sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one by one, then add the almond extract and milk. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder; stir into the creamed butter to form a loose dough.
  3. Divide the dough in half and press each half into the bottom of a prepared cake pan, bringing it slightly up the sides. Drain the raisins and scatter them over the dough. Arrange the apple slices in a spiral pattern over the raisins, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and drizzle with 1/2 cup of melted butter or margarine.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until apples are soft and the dough is lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Very easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. The sugar and butter drizzle at the end is a little much, so I just cut it in half and it was still very tasty. 8 apples is subjective based on t...

This is my roommate's new favorite dessert. She referred to it as "possibly the best thing I've ever eaten." I substituted currants for the raisins and added a little lemon juice to the apples....
