Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together.
  3. Mix the flour and baking powder together. Add to butter mixture.
  4. Beat together eggs and almond extract. Mix into dough.
  5. In a greased and floured 9x13 pan, press down one half of the dough with your fingers. It will be sticky, so you might want to oil them first.
  6. Mix the apples with the allspice (or you can substitute cinnamon).
  7. Spread the apples over the dough in the pan.
  8. Drop the other half of the dough over the apples and press dough down slightly. It doesn't matter if all the apples aren't covered.
  9. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool.
  10. Mix confectioner's sugar, water & vanilla to make a thin icing.
  11. Drizzle icing over cooled cake. Cut into squares to serve.

Mmm Mmmm Good! This was a huge hit with the young men in my house tonight and I thought it was delicious! I made it just as the recipe directed, execept I added some sliced almonds to the top after I spread the icing on, and it looked as pretty as it tasted! We had it for dessert tonight but I have leftovers and I am looking forward to another slice with coffee in the morning.<br/><br/>Made for Family Picks ZWT9

I can't remember baking a better tasting apple cake than this one. I loved it. I used 3 different types of apples. I used a mandoline to thinly slice them. Due to nut allergies, I had to substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract. Finally, I made it the night before we were going to eat it. It stayed fresh tasting, just being covered with plastic wrap until the next evening.
