Dutch Apple Cake

A delicious sweet and dense, pound-like, cake with thin slices of apple. Yum!

Ingredients

  • 3 apples
  • 3 tablespoon and 1 cup white sugar (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 150 gram butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300 gram all purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

1

Cut apples in thin slices (apples in 4 pieces, each piece in half and each half in 3 slices is what I did)

2

Combine the apples with 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in a bowl; cover and let stand for about an hour

3

Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius

4

In another bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy

5

Add eggs, one at the time, beating well after each egg

6

Add the vanilla extract

7

Combine flour and salt

8

Gradually add to creamed mixture and beat until smooth

9

Transfer the batter into a greased loaf pan (12x22cm)

10

Push apple slices vertically into batter, placing them close together

11

Bake in the preheated oven for 90-105 minutes (mine was ready at 90 minutes)

12

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack

Notes

As you can see, I placed the apples horizontally instead of vertically. This did not effect the taste to the cake.
