German Apple Cake


  •  1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Apples (about 3-4, peeled and sliced)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar (white)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350.

Make the cake batter by mixing the butter, eggs, milk and vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, and baking powder), blend, and pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish (I use glass for this cake).

Place the sliced apples (Topping #1) on top of the batter. Slice more apples if needed to cover the cake.

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for Topping #2 (butter, flour and sugar) and spread on top of the apples. This topping will be very crumbly.

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for Topping # 3 (sugar and cinnamon). Sprinkle on top of the crumbly mixture.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cool before serving, though this cake is delicious when served warm (and with a heavy cream!)
