    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour-Germany. This recipe is from my German grandmother. It is different from most apfelkuchen because it doesn't use a pastry crust.

      Excellent cake! I loved the slight lemon flavor of the cake. It was initially dry (because I overbaked it!), but the next day it was actually fine because it absorbed the moisture of the apples. It stayed moist for several days, thanks to the apples. Definite keeper!

      This is a very nice change of pace for a cake. I used it as a breakfast treat for a class of adults at church. It was a hit! Because I don't use shortening I subbed that out for butter but outside of that little change everything else remained the same. I think some chopped walnuts or almonds on top would be a nice touch too. Perfectly baked in 50 minutes in my oven using the size pan as stated. Loved the flavors of the cinnamon & nutmeg in the topping! Made for Potluck Tag in the Cooking Games with Friends forum.

      This cake was pretty good. My other grandmother - Oma B - used to make a cake like this whenever her boys came back to the farm to visit. I think they may have just come for the cake! ;) I split it into two regular sized pans rather than take a chance on ruining one giant cake. We have the other cake in the freezer now. It is very dense and holds the filling nicely. I think a nice addition would be some almonds to the top. Made and Reviewed for 123 Hit Wonders - Thanks! :)
