    This German Apple Cake tastes just like one my German grandmother, my Oma used to make when I was a chile. 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.

    Start this cake by making a typical cake batter – beast sugar and butter together, add eggs and beat well, sift in flour and mix in some milk. Make a sweet topping from demerara sugar and cinnamon that will caramelize as the cake cooks. Arrange apple wedges in a circular spiral shape and bake until golden brown.
