Here is a delicious cake which is easy to prepare. You can also use this pastry base with pitted cherries, plums, or sliced peaches.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ⅓ cup cream
  • 4 large apple - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly butter an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. 2 Sift together 1 1/2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in 1/2 cup of 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, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.
  3. 3 Bake in preheated oven until apples have softened, and topping has browned, about 25 minutes.

  1. This cake is absolutely wonderful! It has been a favorite of mine. I could eat it all day cause it isn't too sweet. I only added a hint more cinnamon to the topping. Definitely going to make this again! I really like the struesel topping so I'll probably add more of it next time. So - Read more ...
  2. This was a very good very rich recipe. I am really amazed at how little work it takes to actually make this. I made it with Red Delicious apples but I think the next time I make it I'll use granny smith. Thanks for a great recipe.
  3. I made four of these for my son's school project on Russia. I sampled the cake immediately after baking it and was not impressed. It was dry not very flavorful and hard to cut through the apples. Fortunately however there was way too much food brought in to school so my son brought home some - Read more ...
  4. I just made this... it was simple and delicious! However I don't really recommend eating it while it's warm as the cake flavor is almost overpowering while still hot out of the oven. And don't skimp on the apples or the topping even though they may seem like a lot--the balance is perfect! I also - Read more ...

I didn't change a thing other than using rice milk and a blob of sour cream instead of the cream (whey allergy). Talk - Read more ...
  6. This is absolutely wonderful apple cake. My husband and kids loved it. I made the recipe exactly as written. The only thing I did differently was baked it in a springform pan. Next time I think I will try a layer of caramel between the cake layer and apple layer. This is definately a keeper.
  7. Oh YUM! Really lovely- the bottom cake layer reminded me of a sugar donut and the top was really delicious. I made it in an 8" x 8" pan and had to bake it an extra 15 minutes because it was thicker but it worked perfectly. Thanks for the great recipe:)
  8. I recently made this for a Ukranian Christmas party I was invited too and it was a big hit! I used mostly all purpose flour with some whole wheat and milk instead of cream and it worked really well! I was so scared because when everthing was mixed the batter seemed really wet but it - Read more ...
