2.  In a mixer or blender, blend melted butter, milk, Olive oil and sugar on high speed for just a minute.

3.  Add the dry ingredients to this mixture and mix well. Add the chopped apples and give it a slight mix.

4.  Grease the cake pan and arrange the sliced apples on the pan. You can arrange 2 layers of apple slices for a better look of the cake.

5.  Pour the cake batter on the arranged apples and make sure you do not try to even the layer. I tried to even it and the apple slices that were arranged into disarray.

6.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until inserting a toothpick or fork comes out dry. Keep an eye on the cake after 30 minutes just to make sure the cake is not over cooked.

7.  Let the cake cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife along the sides of the pan and flip the cake on a plate.

8.  Let it completely cool down before serving. This cake is mildly sweet, very moist and chunky and I love it this way.

9.  If you are more on the sweeter side, Heat sugar with water on a low flame until it starts turning dark. Do not stir it more than once.

10.  When you have achieved the color of your choice, remove it from heat and pour it over the apple cake. Serve it quickly and enjoy!

Cooks' note:
* You can make spiced caramel by adding a start anise and a cinnamon stick while making caramel.
* You can also sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top of the cake for an extra flavor.
* You can replace Milk with 1 egg, this makes the cake more spongy.
