Apfelkuchen is a german apple cake or pie-like dish. It is one of those recipes where every family has a different recipe so there are hundreds of different recipes. This was a recipe that I found on the internet many, many years ago for a project in German class in high school and have not found one similar to it anywhere. I LOVE this Apfelkuchen and being of mostly German heritage I love it even more! It is more of a custard type pie but it is by far one of the best apple dishes I have ever had! I always make sure to make it every year when apples are in season!
