Grace’s Dutch Apple Cake

A small and simple cake loaded with apples and dusted with a cinnamon-sugar mix. The number of apples seems large for the amount of batter but maybe that is what makes this cake unique and interesting.

With an almost even ratio of cake to apples, I imagine it being extremely moist. And lots of cinnamon? Well, that’s a must-have when dealing with apples.

Grace’s Dutch Apple Cake
1 cup pastry flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 T sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 egg, beaten
2 T milk
3 apples
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 T sugar
1 T butter

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut shortening into the mixture.

Add beaten egg and milk to the mixture and stir until combined. Spread batter in a greased 10 x 6 x 1 1/2 pan.

Peel and core apples, then slice thinly. Arrange apples flat side up in rows over the batter. Sprinkle top of cake with a mix of 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 T sugar. Dot with 1 T butter.

Bake at 400F for 30 minutes.
