This recipe comes from a little old German woman who I met at the pool. DD#3 is the lifeguard and introduced me Gisella who is from Germany and her husband from Holland. This is his favorite dessert. I asked her why she doesnt make it the traditional German way and her answer was because this is so much easier and then I have more time to come to the pool!....Duh LAURIE (roll eyes)....(its a 50+ free swim) I have not made it with the apples only with prediced peaches.

This was very easy to make, I used fresh peaches to make ours. It tastes wonderful warm out of the oven. I used plastic wrap to press the cake mixture into the pan. The sour cream mixture does not drizzle well, so mine were more like big drops here and there. But weather drizzled or drops it was good eating! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
