Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly butter an 8 inch square baking dish.
Cake: Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir together the egg with the cream and gently mix into the flour until a soft dough has formed. Press into prepared baking dish. Layer the apples into the dish overlapping, in neat rows.
Prepare streusel by mixing the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake in preheated oven until apples have softened, and topping has browned, about 25 minutes.
