Sunken Apple Cake


This cake is so easy to make, I made it the evening we came home from our big road trip. Simple, yet pretty enough for company.

How to make Sunken Apple Cake:

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
3 cups sliced apples
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup brown sugar

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except apples, almonds, and brown sugar. Mix with an electric mixer till well blended. Pour batter into a greased 8- or 9-inch springform pan. Place apples on top, evenly spaced across the batter. (Apples will sink inside the cake as it bakes.)

Bake at 350-degrees for about 30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Combine almonds and brown sugar in a small bowl. Stir together. Sprinkle almond/brown sugar mixture across the top of the cake. Return cake to oven and broil on high for a few minutes, watching carefully so as to not burn the topping.
Remove cake from oven; let cool. Release springform pan.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and a smile!

    Read it, printed it, got it in the oven right now!

    I made a couple of changes, so we’ll see. EZ.

    Oh, this looks so inviting and delicious. Could one use other fruit too or is the texture and weight of the apple paramount? I was thinking rhubarb, peach or blueberry.

    No sugar in this cake?

    Drat, I am so sorry, that is a typo! Yes, fixed, there is sugar. Thank you for the catch!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
