Patty's Apple Cake

This is a crunchy, moist, sweet/tart cake, especially delicious for Sukkot or Rosh Hashanah meals.

3 tart baking apples (I use Granny Smith), peeled, cored, and cut in chunks or 1/8th inch thick slices (should be about 3 cups)
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 9 inch pie pan.
Cream the butter and sugar (you can use your hands for this if you don't have a mixer), add the egg, and beat until light and fluffy.
Mix together the dry ingredients.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
Gently stir the apples into the batter. It will seem hard to do, given how stiff the batter is! Just make sure to coat all the apples with the batter.
Put batter in pan and smooth out the top.
Bake approximately one hour, or until done.
