Apple Cake . . .

Okay, the apple cake in written form. Note, this is a rough guess as to what I did, 
when I was putting it together I made a few mis-judgments, worked them into purposeful decisions  and trusted in the oven gods. 
P.S. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but it's not so bad and worth it.
Apple Cake
Preheat oven 350 degrees

Butter a glass 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
Spread evenly:
6 cups apples sliced

Sprinkle with:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

In a large bowl combine:
1 cup milk
1 cup almond meal
1 cup raw sugar
2 + 1/2  sticks butter soft (20 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add one at a time stirring:
4 eggs

In a bowl combine then mix with wet ingredients:
4 cups unbleached white flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon lemon rind save lemon for juicing

Add and mix:
3 cups sliced apples

Spread batter evenly over the apples in the pan.

In a separate bowl combine and crumble with your fingers, then
spread evenly over the top:
3/4 cups unbleached white flour
3/4 cups almond meal
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
4 tablespoons butter soft
The lemon squeezed
1 + 1/2 cups pecans

Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until knife inserted comes out clean.
