We, Germans love to mix and top fruits in our cakes, tarts, tortes or pies. Very classic ones are with apples, plums, berries, tangerines and even with rhubarbs.
My family loves anything with chocolates and fruits. And I have to be honest, my husband’s aunt, Luise is the best German baker. She bakes for fun and can stay in the kitchen for hours or even the whole night.
I remember, once she baked 14 cakes/tarts in a day. That was her daughter’s (my cousin’s) Confirmation. We were all just gobsmacked!
Ok, back to this cake. You’ll literally fall in love with this German Apple Cake. It’s crusty outside and soft inside. It’ll be perfect to eat it while it’s still warm and serve it with vanilla ice cream ohhhh yum!
For this recipe, you’ll need:
3 Large Apples (I used Granny Smith, buy you can use any kind you want or you have in hand), thinly sliced.
125 gr (1 Cup) of Rum Raisins. You can also use regular raisins and add some rum aroma in your raisins and mix them well.
2 Cups of all purpose flour.
180 ml (3/4 Cup) of Vegetable Oil. You can also use Sunflower Seed Oil or Canola Oil, any oils that have plain flavor. I’d not recommend to use Olive Oil.
2 Medium Eggs. Get organic eggs, pls.
330 gr (1-1/2 Cups) of Granulated Sugar.
2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon.
1 tsp of Baking Powder.
1/2 tsp of Salt.
