I love this cake, and since it’s apple season, it’s time to share the recipe!
I use half oil and half sour cream. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of oil but it’s still very moist with sour cream.
German Apple Cake
Makes 16 slices
Adapted from Allrecipes.com
2 large eggs
½ cup canola oil
½ cup sour cream
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced
Preheat oven to 350F and grease and flour a bundt pan (or a 9x13 square).
Beat the eggs, oil and sour cream on medium speed with mixer until creamy. Beat in sugars and vanilla until well combined.
Combine all the dry ingredients with a whisk, then, slowly add to egg mixture with a wooden spoon. The batter will be thick.
Fold in apples by hand, then, spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool completely before dusting with confectioners’ sugar and serving.
