Thanks to Susan Oleksiw for yesterday's guest post. Characters are my favorite part of reading and writing, and it's wonderful to see how others approach them.
Sorry there's no picture of the completed recipe this week. I'm trying to have everything ready for my trip to the Emerald City Writer's Conference, so I'm not cooking much. I do want to keep sharing recipes on Wednesdays, however, so here's one from my mom. She likes things simple, and this one, like the almond torte recipe which is also one of hers, is done in a food processor.
(And remember – if you share a recipe, you get an entry into my "cleaning out my bookshelf" contest.)
German Apple Cake
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a 9" springform pan
1 c sugar
1 t vanilla
1 c flour
4 T butter
4 large tart apples
1 t baking powder
3 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
3 T melted butter
With metal blade, add all ingredients except apples to bowl of processor. Process until mixture resembles cornmeal. Spread mixture in bottom of a well greased 9” springform pan
Peel, quarter & seed apples. Slice in the food processor. Arrange in layers on top of crumb mixture. Bake 45 minutes. (I put cake mixture up sides of pan about ½ - 1 inch). Save the ‘best’ apples slices for top layer so it looks like you've spent a lot of time on presentation.
Add sugar, butter, cinnamon & egg to bowl of processor with metal blade. Process until mixture is smooth and sugar dissolves. Spoon mixture over apples & bake until top is firm, 30-45 minutes.
