Apple Pound Cake by Rose

Rose Rauhauser


Everyone loves this. It's moist and has great flavor. I use Rome apples for it, they are always sweet and soft, done when cake is done. It came originally from a Holocost Survivor, so I want to honor her. Enjoy

  1. Peel and slice apples, thin. In bowl combine apples,cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar, set aside

    In large elec. mixer combine butter and remaining sugar, beat until fluffy, add eggs one at a time. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, add to the batter a little at a time, mix well.

Leave in pan at least 15 or 20 minutes to cool. Romove from pan, apple side up for beautiful presentation. If wanted glaze or powder sugar. Not really necessary, whatever u like. I just drizzle with confectioners sugar and milk mixed for more sweetness. Enjoy!!
