Dutch Apple Cake

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Bonnie G 2

There's plenty of recipes for this cake listed, but I think this one sounds a little different. Found it online at Taste of Home. It looks fairly simple and baked in a loaf pan. It would be a great take along for potlucks or just an easy snack for the family. Now that our apple trees are full and ripe, it's a great time to try this out. As an update, finally got around to trying this and loved it. Simple, with a nice presentation and very good. I did add a cup of chopped pecans as we love nuts and everyone enjoyed it. Don't make the mistake I did though - be aware that the divided sugar puts 3 Tablespoons in the apples and then the 1 cup goes in the batter.

Reviewed for ZWT7- this was a straightforward cake to make and a little different to your regular apple cake. The cake batter is quite thick, but needs to be to hold up the apples. I used 2.5 granny smith apples for this recipe. Smelt wonderful baking in the oven Photo also being posted
