Dutch Apple Cake

Dutch Apple Cake

Carol

This is another great cake for the fall. When apples are plentiful and delicious there are so many ways to thank mother nature for its bounty. I pick a lot of the wild apples in the fall, and turn them into great desserts.

This cake turned out great! Lovely, light and very delicious! I made a couple substitutions to it though - instead of 1/2 cup shortening I used 1/2 cup butter and I used 1 cup (packed) brown sugar instead of the white. Also added a couple dashes of cinnamon and a few more chopped apples in the batter. Just made this lastnight and it's practically gone already! Will definitely make this again.

I made this apple cake with apples that had been hanging aroung the kitchen and it was so moist and delicious. The cinnamon and sugar combo added to the top really gave it a great gooey flavor. I'm embarassed to say, but I ate most of it before my family could get any. I guess it gives me an excuse to make more!!

This cake is DIVINE! I made it in a 9x11 pan and used three granny smith apples. My family managed to eat the entire thing within one hour of it coming out of the oven! It was soooo good. Crispy top with light cake on the bottom and perfectly baked apples. I think I'll have to make this one again very soon. Yum.
