This is my seventh cake in the Caketastic Tuesday feature where I bake a cake a week, working through vintage cake recipes from the 1950′s. My husband was away on a business trip for a week and when he returned my daughter was insistent about making him an apple dessert. I looked through my book and found this awesome recipe for a Dutch Apple Cake. We had so much fun making it together.
Has her serious chef face on while adding in all the ingredients for the dough.
Rolling dough for the first time.
Look at all those apple slices!!
Mmmm…Cinnamon and butter!!
Not complete without a little ice cream.
- 1 cup of sifted all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
- 1 unbeaten egg
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- 2 large green apples, sliced thinly
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- Sift all of the dry ingredients together.
- Work in the butter into flour mixture until crumbly (like you would do for pastry).
- Beat in egg and milk into flour mixture to make a stiff dough.
- Spread the dough over the bottom of a greased 9 inch cheesecake pan.
- Cover with sliced apples placed overlapping each other.
- Sprinkle the apples with sugar mixed cinnamon and dot with butter.
- Bake in 425 degree oven for 25 minutes.
- "Try this cake warmed up for breakfast sometime. It's delicious! Fresh plums or peaches could be substituted instead of apples, if you wish." - Mary Meade
