Apfelkuchen (Traditional German Apple Cake)

Well, you all remember when I made plum cake a few months ago, right? Well, the recipe also works for apple cake as well. And here is my interpretation of my grandmother’s apfelkuchen.

applekuchen

You use the same sweet dough as the plum cake, but line it with sliced apples instead, and sprinkle it with a crumb made out of melted butter, flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Bake it as you would the plum cake. Delicious. :)

  1. Becke ~ I’m glad that you got around to making the apfelkuchen. It looks inviting in a different way to the pflaumenkuchen. I love its warm, honeyed coloring, and I bet the aroma was amazing as it baked. What variety of apples did you use?

  2. no web site but would love the recipe for apfelkuchen ( apple cake) I used to make it years ago for the children ( one of their favourites)but have lost the recipe and can not access it on your columbus foodie site would be very grateful if you could oblige

  3. I would appreciate a link to the original pflaumenkuchen so I can make the crust.
