German Apple Cake

Posted by Mouridsen Rosales on February 8th, 2021

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for another 30 seconds. Add the applesauce and beat until combined. This variation of apple cake is made with a thick dough which is pressed into the tin. Covered with sweet apple and cinnamon, it has a warm fruity flavor throughout. It only takes 15 mins to prepare and 1hr to bake and is well worth the wait. It costs hardly anything to make and is ideal served with lashing of cream or homemade custard for the perfect finish. You could try this recipe with pears instead. Almost everyone heard about strudel because it’s one of the most famous recipes for classic homemade cakes that are highly appreciated even today. I’ve already made it twice! We are working our way through a giant bag of apples so this was just the thing. Remove the cake from the oven. Warm the apricot jam in a small saucepan and brush it over the top while the cake is hot. Let the cake cool completely, then run a knife around the inside of the cake pan to release the cake, and remove the sides of the cake pan. Add the rest of the cream, sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk again until well combined. The first time l made it as per recipe. I chopped the apple's in food processor. In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cups of cream with flour and whisk together to get rid of big lumps. Add the rest of the cream, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt. Spread the batter onto the bottom of the prepared springform pan. Spoon the pudding as evenly as possible over the cake batter. Use a spoon to very gently spread it, if necessary. Arrange the apples over the pudding and then sprinkle the streusel evenly over the top. This cake goes great with ice cream or salted caramel sauce. While the cake is baking, make the custard by whisking 1/4th of the heavy cream and the flour in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Reduce to low, add the flour mixture and mix just until the batter is evenly moistened, about 10 seconds; it will be thick. Using the spatula, scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl and give the batter a few folds to ensure no pockets of butter or flour remain. Transfer to the prepared pan and spread in an even layer, smoothing the surface. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan, the layer half of the apples, then add remaining batter, topping it with the remaining apples. Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours, or until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan for 20 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edge of the pan, loosening any edges that may be stuck. Remove cake from pan, slice, and serve. Very tasty and beautifully looking cake. I tried your recipe a while ago and it immediately became my family’s favorite cake . I like to add small chunks of marzipan, which I place under the apples. Add sugar and mix schneller apfelkuchen until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves. Mix together until the baking soda and spices are evenly distributed through the dry ingredients mixture. This Apple Cake is called Versunkener Apfelkuchen in Germany. Bake in the oven for 40–45 minutes until the sugar and cinnamon topping has started to crystallize and is golden brown. German Apple Cake tastes just like one my German grandmother, my Oma used to make when I was a child. We adored her baking and her ‘Apfelkuchen’ was always a treat! Sadly I don’t get to visit her so often anymore and now that she is older, she doesn’t bake as much as she used to. I love to make my own versions of her cakes as a tribute to her though. Bake for minutes until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Both apple cake recipes are so delicious that it was hard to choose which one to share first. But streusel wins out every time for me. German apple cake with streusel topping is actually one of a number of different types of apple cake that are popular in Germany. Although there are other recipes for the same German apple cake that uses a bottom crust made with yeast that I haven’t tried at home yet. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugars, baking, spices, and salt; whisk well to combine and set aside. In a separate bowl combine the oil, vanilla, eggs, and apple cider; whisk well to combine. Gently pour the wet mixture into the dry and using a rubber spatula fold the batter together until just combined. Remove the cake from the oven and cool for 15 minutes in the pan. Run a knife around the edges of the cake and remove the spring form edge. Let the cake continue to cool on a wire rack. Moist and buttery cake meets fall apples in Apfelkuchen, the classic German Apple Cake. Apples are arranged over top of the batter like we described above.
