Apple Kuchen

I really like Apple Kuchen. The bottom is a thin cake and the apples bake right into it. It’s also another great way to use up those apples you’re going to pick this season.

Unfortunately, I can’t remember where I found this recipe for Apple Kuchen (if it’s yours, let me know). I really liked it, but I liked my mom’s better of course.  



Apple Kuchen
Makes 18 servings (I think – it depends how you cut it)

Ingredients
Cake
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
Topping
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9x13 baking sheet (I also line with parchment).

Wisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon peel, nutmeg and salt and set aside.

Add the milk, butter, egg and vanilla, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes until well blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Arrange apple slices over the batter.

Place all the topping ingredients into a bowl, and use a fork to mix until it’s crumbly. I use my fingers sometimes. Sprinkle the topping over apple, and bake for about 40 minutes or until lightly golden.

I prefer to eat it completely cooled.
