What is different about our German Apple Cake? We use giant slices of quartered apples to fill the center of the cake. Most recipes use thinly sliced apples or tiny chopped cubes but we’ve left ours bigger for double the sweetness!

Place the awesome apples on top of a soft, vanilla cake base and bake in the oven until the cake is soft and moist and the apples are crisp and golden on top.

To make German Apple Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make German Apple Cake (Versunkener Apfelkuchen)

1

Preheat oven and prepare baking pan

10

Preheat oven to 350 °F and lightly grease or line the base of a 9 or 10-inch springform with cooking spray or baking parchment paper.

2

Slice apples

5

Thinly slice each apple lengthwise being careful not to cut all the way through.

3

Beat butter

1

In a standing, electric mixer, beat the butter for about 1 minute until creamy.

4

Add sugar

2

Add sugar and continue beating for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy.

5

Add eggs

3

Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat for 30 seconds on high, in between each addition.

6

Add flavor

2

Add vanilla, salt and lemon juice and beat again, to combine.

7

Combine dry ingredients

2

In a large bowl, stir the cake flour, baking powder and salt until combined.

8

Add milk

3

Using the mixer on low speed, add half the flour and 1 tablespoon milk and mix. Then add remaining flour and remaining milk and beat until combined. Do not overmix.

9

Prepare cake

5

Pour batter into prepared spring form and spread evenly using a spatula. Add the apples with the sliced-side up.

10

Bake

45

Bake in the lower third of the oven for 45 minutes, until lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once cooked, transfer to a cooling rack and remove the springform ring to allow cake to cool to room temperature.

11

Serve

3

Decorate with sprinkles of powdered sugar and whipped cream, for serving.
