Polish Apple Cake Recipe

Makes 12 servings

  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 + 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) soft butter + 3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  1. Lightly coat a 13″x9″ pan with cooking spray. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and 3/4 cup sugar. Add 1/2 cup softened butter, milk and eggs. Beat at medium speed 4 minutes.
  2. Pour half the batter into prepared pan, then layer on half the apples. Spoon all but 1/2 cup of the remaining batter over the apples, covering completely. Place the remaining apples on top and dot the reserved 1/2 cup batter over the apples.
  3. Cut remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cloves into 3 tablespoons cold butter and sprinkle over the unbaked cake. Bake about 40 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.
  4. Let the cake cool in the pan so the apple juices will be reabsorbed to create a moist cake. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired, and cut into 12 squares.
