"I fell in love with apfelkuchen when I was in 6th grade. Our teacher let us order from a local German bakery and eat our treats in class once a month. These flavors bring back wonderful memories." — sneez

2 1/4 cups

1 1/8 cups
1 (.25 ounce) package
active dry yeast

sifted all-purpose flour
candied lemon peel, chopped
This was delicious and not hard to make at all. It was humid the day I made this. The dough seemed way to sticky with the amount of flour called for in the dough part of the recipie. I hate altering recipies on my first try, but like I said, it was so muggy and we make a lot of our own bread so I know how that can effect dough. I did end up adding about one cup more flour. This gave me a slightly sticky, but smooth looking dough. I had to flour my finger tips to push it up the sides of the pan. The result, regardless of the flour issue, was so so good. It formed a soft, very thin layer between the apples and dough that was almost cheese danish like..but not doughy or under baked. My family loved it and I will positively make it again!
This is a great recipe. So simple and quick to make. I used fresh apricots and no crumbs. Instead I whipped one egg with 1/2 cup sugar and poured that over the apricots. This is a keeper!
Making this one again at husband's request for Thanksgiving dessert. I used dark brown sugar in the topping the first time. A little too "gooey" with just the brown sugar - going to use half regular and half brown sugar this time. Overall flavor and ease of prep was great. Don't be scared of the yeast batter - it takes care of itself without being fussy. Would be great warm with a little scoop of ice cream or whipped cream - yum!
As good as in Germany, and my house smells heavenly!
Delicious and easy! I added some cranberries and sunflower seeds for a different flavor :)
this is a good dish I made it and everyone loved it but my first got a little burned that stunk it was such a tasty cake!
AWESOME! What a great cake. Very easy to make and just so delicious, especially warmed up.
Just loved this recipe. Kids and husband all raved about it. It's a keeper!
