Apple Dessert Cake

3/4 t. vanilla

11/2 c. cake flour

21/2 t. baking powder

Combine the first four ingredients and mix well. Then continue to add the ingredients in order and mix. In a greased eight-by-eight-inch baking pan melt 3 tablespoons of butter and add a 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
