Country-Style Apple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Good Looking Cooking

This cake is topped with fresh sliced apple and has a delicious home made taste. If you feel like a delicious, not too sweet coffee cake, then this is the one. Recipe came from a free succesful baking card sent to me in the mail.

Top Review by ImPat

the family really enjoyed this for dessert tonight (though I only had a very thin slice I was pleased with the ovall taste - I rarely eat dessert - it was very light and had good taste though still sweet to me). I baked a 170C fan forced oven for 55 minutes but would consider lowering temperature a notch or cooking for less time but that is my oven. The only other change I made was to make up a mix of cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the top of the apples before putting in the oven. This is also the first cake recipe I have dne were you add the flour mix and then add the liquid and I really think if you grease and fully line your pan you don't need the flour. Thank you Good Looking Cooking, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup Tag Game.
