Apple Cake

Hands-On Time: 15 minutes
Ready In: 45 minutes
Yield: 8 servings


8 cups peeled and thinly sliced apples – about 4 large or 8 small
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar – divided
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I prefer freshly grated)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Layer apples in a 9×13 baking dish.

Combine butter and 1 cup sugar until fluffy.

Add eggs and beat well.

Add flour and baking powder and mix until a soft dough forms.

Combine 1/4 cup of remaining sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons over apples in pan.

Drop spoonfuls of dough over apples and spread together until apples are evenly covered.

Sprinkle remaining cinnamon-nutmeg sugar over dough.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.

I serve this with sweetened sour cream: To 1 cup of sour cream add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar. Stir to combine
