Twice Baked German Apple Cake

sommersu's picture

Although the recipe is called a cake..due to the fact that it is made in a 9" Springform pan and the topping for second baking just glazes it comes out looking more like an apple tart.
All the talk about Pink Lady Apples made me bring this old favorite out again!

Cake
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
1 t bp
1 t vanilla
1 egg
4 lg apples peeled and sliced thin

Topping
3T sugar
3T melted butter
1t cinnamon
1 egg

Method
Heat oven to 350
Cut sugar and flour w/cold butter add bp, vanilla, and egg..Mix until crumbly..do not over process. Press into well buttered spring form pan..add sliced apples and bake about 45 min.
While baking make topping..mix all together..wait till butter is cooled to add egg.
After the 45 min of baking pour topping over.
Bake another 25-30 min..until top looks glazed and somewhat firm.
Note..I add nutmeg to my topping mix.
This cake is great..hope someone gives it a try!

I know I will - I have some nice apples I need to use up.

Its a light dessert so anything goes w/it..unless you add icecream on top!

It sounds delicious and apples are in season for me now! I will have to try it. Did it come out very sweet for you??? I wonder if I could reduce the sugar a bit.

Also as an aside, I think it was you that suggested a yellow cupcake recipe to me. Thank you. They came out very well and I will be making them again on Saturday as our Easter dessert.

Yes it was me who reccomended the cupcakes..soo glad you liked them...No the apple is not very sweet..the cake part forms a crust not really a cake... but if you want to add less sugar why not!
And as far as the topping..I say your choice of how you like it! Like I said I added some nutmeg..recipe didn't call for it. The topping just glazes the apples..that is why it looks like more of a tart than a cake.

It certainly looks interesting. I could make it as a grownup Easter dessert, couldn't I?? Hmmm.

What kinds of apples would you suggest?

I used Pink Lady..due to all the dicussion about them.. I've now made it 2 wks in a row..my husband enjoys it... I'm not an apple expert..but Granny Smith would be another baking choice for me.
