Dutch Apple Cake

Jan 15, 2012 by

My sisters came to visit me last year and my sister Martha made this Dutch Apple Cake  for us. She gave me her recipe and I made a few changes to the ingredients, just added cinnamon, vanilla and lemon extract.

Ingredients

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

Instructions

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

    I would love to try this, but I don't understand the Cup sizing. Is it possible for you to give weights of flour etc instead please? I was so happy to find this site, as I have been searching for Dutch recipes for a long time. My search for Gevuldekoeken brought me here. Hoping you can help out as the cakes sounds wonderful..... Thanks

      On the top there is a link to measurement conversion. I do see I need to add one for cake flour conversion. Try this one for the cake flour. http://convert-to.com/499/convert-cake-flour.html. Here is a sample: Amount : 2 cup US of cake flour Equals : 200.00 gram (g) of cake flour
