Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a bowl, and cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Reserve 1/2 cup flour mixture for topping; set aside.
Combine the remaining flour mixture, baking powder, and baking soda, and add the apple juice, vanilla extract, and egg. Beat the mixture at medium speed of a mixer until blended, and fold in the chopped apple.
Spoon the batter into an 8-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup flour mixture over the batter. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool the cake on a wire rack.
A good recipe. Tasty right ot of the oven, and good the next day for breakfast. The two 20 something young males in the3 household ate it right up. Good crumb and easy to make. I used 3 smallish Granny Smith apples. Do not keep apple juice on hand, used water instead. Have made it twice, will definately make it again.
