German Apple Cake
It was my first time making this, and unfortunately I didn’t have any applesauce on hand. I subbed some egg replacer, but I don’t think it did the trick as well as applesauce would have. The flavor of the cake was great, but the texture was a bit crumbly and dry. I don’t think this is the fault of the recipe, and I’m sure it’s great when made as written. Even though the texture was a bit off, I still could probably eat the whole thing in one sitting.
A bigger issue I had with this cake was that the apples didn’t bake quite enough for me. I pre-cooked them a bit, as instructed, but they just didn’t soften enough. I baked the cake for much more time than was called for in the recipe, so I’m not sure why the apples were still so firm.
I think I’d be willing to try this cake again with the right ingredients. I do have another apple cake recipe that I love, and while it’s not as pretty as this cake, it’s really delicious. Have any of you tried this German Apple Cake? How did it turn out for you?
