Dutch Apple Cake
My sisters came to visit me last year and my sister Martha made this for us. She gave me her recipe and I made a few changes to the ingredients, just added cinnamon, vanilla and lemon extract.
- 4 small apples (you need 3 1/2 but you can eat the rest)
- 1 cup sugar plus 3 tbsp
- 2/3 cup unsalted melted butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups cake flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp lemon extract
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp apricot jelly
Put parchment paper underneath the circle of the spring form and draw a circle. Cut out the circle and spray the springform with Pam. Put the parchment circle on it and spray it again with Pam. so the cake won't stick to the bottom.
Peel the apples and take the core out. Cut the apples up in 4. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 3 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon to the apples. Mix it up and set aside.
Add the melted butter to the sugar and mix well. Add one egg to the butter sugar mix, alternate with 1/2 cup of cake flour. When you used up all the flour and the eggs, add the vanilla and lemon extract.
Pour in the prepared spring form and top it off with the apples. Cook in a preheated oven of 300F oven for 1 1/2 hour. The last 10 min top the cake with the apricot jelly and cook 10 min more. Take the cake out of the oven and put on a wired rack, let it cool for about 10 min then you should be able to take the cake out of the spring form.
