Caroline's Apple Kuchen

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 30 mins

A simple recipe, I usually have most ingredients on hand. It's a recipe from my parents. It's not too sweet either.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar and add eggs.
  2. Beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour and salt to make a smooth dough.
  5. Spread into a buttered 13-by-9-inch pan.
  6. Halve the apples.
  7. Make cuts in the apples 1/4-inch apart but not all the way through, so the halves still hold together.
  8. Press the halves flat side down, making an attractive arrangement on the top of the batter.
  9. Brush apples with melted butter.
  10. Sprinkle with the brown sugar.
  11. Bake at 425 degrees F for 30 minute until cake is golden and apples are cooked through.

The cake is great but I agree that the cooking time and temp must be off. I did 400 degrees and it still started to brown to fast on the bottom and left the apples undercooked. I am thinking a cooking temp of 350 and a 45 minute cooking time might be better. Will try again though bc it was excellent, esp with vanilla sauce or a little powdered sugar on top. MMMM!

I followed the directions, and either the baking temp is too high or the time is too long. My kuchen scorched pretty badly.
