If you want the apples to be soft, super cinnamony and sweet, melt the butter then add the sugar, cinnamon and apples and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Let the apples cool down then arrange them at the bottom of the cake tin.

Alternatively, grease the bottom of the tin with the butter, sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon, then arrange the raw apples on top of that.
