Heat sugar and water in a saucepan, stirring until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil, without stirring until a golden toffee colour. Mix in lemon juice and butter and, working quickly, pour over apples.Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar until thick and creamy. Sift flour and baking powder on top and fold in gently. Stir in milk and melted butter. Pour over apples in cake pan and bake at 180°C for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. If the cake is colouring too quickly, cover with foil for the duration of the cooking time. Allow to stand 5 minutes before turning out upside down onto a serving plate.
