ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together.
  • Mix the flour and baking powder together. Add to butter mixture.
  • Beat together eggs and almond extract. Mix into dough.
  • 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.
  • Mix the apples with the allspice (or you can substitute cinnamon).
  • Spread the apples over the dough in the pan.
  • 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.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool.
  • Mix confectioner's sugar, water & vanilla to make a thin icing.
  • 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.

    This is absolutely delicious. I made it using margarine instead of butter, and I had to use some rum extract as I didn't have almond. I also used a 8x8 pan so mine was a bit thicker.I used Honey crisp apples sliced thinly. I didnt put on the icing at all. The taste was very rich and I know this will be made often at our house. thanks for posting
