German Apple Cake

German Apple Cake is one of my favorites, because it is lightly, feathery and fluffy. When I bake them I like to place the apples in there layers. One at the bottom of the pan, one that is combined into the batter and one layered neatly on the top sprinkled with brown sugar. Super delicious. This cake is perfect for those tea time parties or even dinner when topped with some warm rum custard.

In an apple pie fresh apples are lightly stewed in butter and cinnamon and baked in a flaky whole wheat crust.  It is great to have a rolled out and crimped pie crust ready and waiting in the freezer. Well sealed in a freezer bag, the crust will keep for up to a month. When ready to use, juts pop it into a preheated oven as if you had just prepared it. Alternatively stock your inventory with delicious cups that can come in handy any time.
