German Apple Cake

German Apple Cake
  • 3 - 5 apples
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Grease bottom and sides of a 10-inch spring form pan
  3. Peel, quarter, and core apples. Thinly slice each quarter several times without cutting all the way through.
  4. Do this just before you place them on cake.
  5. The apples "open" when they are baked.
  6. In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar, eggs and lemon juice until creamy
  7. Blend flour, baking powder, and salt.
  8. Stir into sugar mixture alternately with the milk
  9. Spread batter in the pan. Arrange apple quarters as shown
  10. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean
  11. Cool in pan on wire rack. Remove the cake from pan.
  12. Dust with powdered icing sugar just before serving.
  13. Put a tablespoon of icing sugar into a small sieve.
  14. Gently strike the sieve with a spoon to sprinkle sugar evenly over cake.
  15. Hints:
  16. Add ½ to 1 tsp almond flavoring instead of or as well as the lemon juice.(Almond flavor is optional)
  17. After I peel, quarter, and core apples, I put them in a bowl with the lemon juice and a little sugar that way the cake won't get too mushy.
