This recipe looks impressive and tastes delicious. A great dessert for dinner guests or a party!

1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and each cut into 8 wedges
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine honey and lemon juice in a large nonstick skillet; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add apples; cook 14 minutes or until almost tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside.

Beat 3/4 cup sugar, butter, brown sugar, and vanilla at medium speed until well-blended (4 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Beat in lemon rind. Combine flour, baking powder and salt, and gradually add to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Pour batter into a 9-inch spring form pan coated with cooking spray.

Arrange apple slices in a spoke-like pattern on top of batter, pressing slices gently into the batter. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over apples. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until cake springs back lightly in center.
