How to Make Apple Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, mix eggs with sugar until foamy. Add melted butter, flour, vanilla or zest, baking powder and salt. Mix well and divide in half. Mix half of the dough with the pine nuts, raisins, and the slices of 5 apples (save about 1 apple to put on top). Butter and flour a 10 inch round cake pan and pour apple mixture into the pan. Spread the rest of the dough on top, then top with rest of the apple slices and sprinkle with a generous layer of sugar (a couple of tablespoons). Bake in preheated oven at 350 for about one hour. Use a toothpick to test if it is done. If it comes out dry it is ready. Makes 8 servings. Note: "00" Italian flour may be purchased at specialty markets or through various sources online, including King Arthur Flour, www.kingarthurflour.com
