AP Cake is a Pennsylvania Dutch breakfast delicacy. One of the stories on its origins is that a baker, Ann Page, used to "carve" her initials on top of the heavy batter before baking. This recipe appeared in the East Penn Valley Merchandiser several weeks ago and tastes like the cakes you buy at the bakery.
