    1. Preheat the Oven:
      • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease and flour a 9-inch (23 cm) round cake pan.
    2. Prepare the Cake Batter:
      • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
      • In another bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
      • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk. Mix until just combined.
      • In a separate bowl, toss the diced apples with 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to coat them evenly.
      • Gently fold the cinnamon-coated apples into the cake batter.
    3. Make the Topping:
      • In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, 50g of granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to create the topping.
    4. Assemble the Cake:
      • Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
      • Drizzle the cinnamon-sugar topping over the cake batter, creating a marbled effect with a knife or skewer.
    5. Bake the Cake:
      • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
      • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    6. Serve and Enjoy:
      • Once cooled, slice the apple cinnamon white cake and serve. It’s delicious on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
    Pro Tips
    • Perfect Apples: Use a mix of sweet and tart apples like Granny Smith and Honeycrisp for a depth of flavor.
    • Even Distribution: When adding apples to the batter, distribute them evenly for a balanced texture in every slice.
    • Cooling Technique: Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a rack. This ensures it retains its moisture.
    • Enhanced Flavor: For an extra layer of richness, serve with a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce.
