Category: Cakes, Desserts, Apples, Dutch

 Ingredients List

  • 3 medium tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices (3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons + 1 cup sugar, divided use
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


1) Combine apples, 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Let mixture stand for 1 hour.
2) When ready to proceed, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Generously grease/butter a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. (I line bottom of pan with parchment paper and then butter the parchment paper as well)
3) Cream butter and remaining sugar in another bowl until mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine flour and salt and gradually add to creamed mixture and beat until smooth.
4) Transfer batter to prepared pan. Push apple slices vertically into batter, placing them close together. Bake for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
