Dutch Apple Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + standing Bake: 1-1/2 hours + cooling
It is my husband's favorite apple dessert. What I do not know is whether or not it can be frozen. I think not, as I do not think there are frozen apple slices in the grocery. Has anyone tried to freeze all or part of this cake?
Great "cake" to use up some apples - not too sweet. Follow the instructions/ingredients and you will have a tasty treat. Mine rose above the lip of the baking dish. Tip - don't cut the apples too thin, otherwise they will get too flimsy and it will be difficult to push them in the batter. Don't worry, they will have plenty of time to cook and soften while baking.
I followed the recipe as a previous reviewer suggested and added 2 Tbsp. of milk, an extra 1/4 tsp. vanilla, an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, and one teaspoon of baking powder. She suggested adding a layer of apples on the bottom before the creamed mixture, but when I did this and took the bread out, this was left at the bottom of my bread pan. This rose like a regular loaf of bread. I am always seeking new recipes, and this has won me over! It is like an apple pie in a bread. Wow, I have never had apple bread before, but I will make this again and again! The crust is crunchy, and I am hoping it will soften up overnight in the refrigerator.
Great cake. Made it various times and have enjoyed it as much as the last time. Easy to make, just follow the directions.
Fantastic! Didn’t make any changes, delicious as written. A keeper!
My second try turned out flawless and perfect. The first time I added BP as I read in the comments that the cake won't rise without it, but it turned out a mess and disaster. The second try, I stuck exactly as the recipe told me to do and the outcome was tasty and as it should be, like the picture shown in the recipe. Try it and it won't fail you!
Made today, easy recipe resulting in a moist tasty bread. Only adjustment was adding 1tsp baking powder. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious! Will make Again! I took tips from other reviews. I greased and floured the pan, put a layer of apples on the bottom, I also layered the apples in with the batter. I added 1 tsp baking powder, used 2 teaspoons cinnamon and in addition to the vanilla I added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. I poured the liquid from the apples on top of the batter before putting it in the oven. The only issue I had was the batter was so stiff and hard to work with so I added 2 tablespoons milk and that made a huge difference, Baked it at 325 for 90 minutes and it came out excellent!
A bread-cake hybrid. Simply sweet. A great recipe. Next time, would mix in a few of the apples, as there were too many for the top. Will definitely make again.
Extremely heavy. Fairly tasteless. Would not make again and waste the ingredients.
