COOK'S NOTES ON GERMAN APPLE CAKE
When the apple cake is cooked, remove it from the container and let it stand for at least 15 minutes on a wire rack. This will stop the base of the cake going soggy.

Any type of cooking apples can be used, we recommend Bramley apples.

METHOD FOR GERMAN APPLE CAKE

Apples stewing Melt 25g / 1oz of the butter in a pan on a medium heat. Add 25g / 1oz of the caster sugar and stir until fully dissolved.

Add the sliced apples and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes until they are tender.

Take the pan off the heat and leave the apples to cool.

Preheat the oven to 180C / Fan 160C / 350F / Gas Mark 4.
 

Crumble topping for German Apple Cake To make the crumble topping, firstly melt the butter in a pan on a medium heat.

Then mix in the remaining topping ingredients (soft brown sugar, ground cinnamon, plain flour and flaked almonds).


German Apple cake mix uncooked Vigorously mix the remaining 150g / 5oz of butter with the remaining 150g / 5oz of caster sugar until they are light and fluffy.

Gradually add the beaten eggs making sure you beat well between additions.

Sift the flour and mix in the baking powder. Add the soured cream then very gently fold this into the mixture.

Spoon approximately two thirds of the cake mixture into the base of the cake tin, then sprinkle one third of the crumble mixture on top. Add remaining cake mixture then put the apples and the rest of the crumble mixture on top.

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cooked. Test with a skewer - see below.

Push a thin skewer into the cake and take it out again. The cake is cooked when the skewer comes out clean with no, or very little, cake on it. If the skewer has cake mix on it then cook for a further 7 minutes and test again.

Allow to cool in the tin before turning out onto a plate. Serve warm or cold.
