Apple Kuchen: what every cake wishes it could be
I’m getting myself ready for the holiday baking season,
and I think you should too.
I am in disbelief that Thanksgiving is next week. That said, I am excited.
I still have to figure out what pies I will be making. And going further than that, what edible gifts and cookies I will be concocting for loved ones this year for Christmas. I’ve already purchased plentiful holiday-themed cookie tins in anticipation of the season.
The stores are starting to fill up with all of the good bits of capitalism. And the deals, oh the deals. I will definitely be indulging in a few nice things, needs and wants. I always say I am going to get ahead for my Christmas shopping, but alas, I failed again seeing as next week is already Thanksgiving.
We’re taking Thanksgiving very casually this year. And after a crazy 2017, I am thankful and excited for a relaxing night of food and good company.
Now I have not been baking as much as I used to due to the busyness of life. So in an effort to get back into it, I made this apple kuchen. My grandmother cut this recipe out of the newspaper with me in mind, and I am glad she did. This cake is delicious. It has a tender crumb and the perfect balance of apple to cake. It will infuse your home with the smells of apple and cinnamon.
Though this cake is fantastic room temperature with coffee, it is exceptionally good warmed up with a huge scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. Perfect for a holiday after dinner dessert or a sweet accompaniment to coffee in the morning this cake has everything you desire for a coffee cake.
