Apfelkuchen – God Bless You!

First things first - make this recipe the day you plan to serve it.  Don't make it the day before and hope that the caramelized sugar is going to stay perfect - it won't.  Also - don't let the left overs sit on your counter for a week being wrapped up and not do anything with it.  The fruit flies will love you - you might lose your lunch.
What a lovely way to talk about a recipe.  I pinned this recipe a long time ago on Pinterest and have two or three people a week repin it.  When I asked Andy what to make for dessert - he looked through my Pinterest board for baked goods and picked this one.  It really was quite easy and thankfully our guests enjoyed it… at least they seemed to.
Do you like my egg timer?  It’s an egg!

What you need!

1 cup of butter, softened
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
6-7 apples, peeled and sliced
¼ cup of sugar for sprinkling

Make it!
First heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a small sheet pan with parchment paper. Spray with non stick spray.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together. Blend in the eggs and stir well. Add the flour and baking powder. Mix until a stiff dough forms, add the milk slowly and stir until a heavy creamy batter forms. Spread the batter on the prepared sheet pan.

Top the batter with the sliced apples. Place them tightly together, try not to leave any gaps. More apples are always better.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
During the last 10 minutes of baking sprinkle the top of the cake with the ¼ cup of sugar and finish baking.  Serve hot.
