What to do with those apples!!

Well, I went apple picking a couple weeks ago with my daughter and granddaughter and need to do some more baking.  I've been looking for this recipe for Apple Kuchen for sometime now and finally found it a few minutes ago.  It's a recipe that my sister gave to me years ago and was always one of the apple favorites in my house.  So, here goes!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Sift together:
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder

Cut in:
1/4 c shortening
(butter, margarine or Crisco)

Stir in:
1/2 c milk
1 beaten egg

Spread mixture in 9 x 12 greased pan.

Put sliced apples on mixture, overlapping.  Sprinkle with a mixture of 1/4 c sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes and ENJOY!!


  1. I have a recipe for Apple Kutchen too, but it has a yummy sour cream topping baked on. If you want it email me.... questfortheperfectclothdiaper at yahoo dot com

  2. I have gone apple picking twice and have been baking and canning up a storm. I still have some left, so I might have to give this a try.

  3. Stopping by from Tuesday Blog Hop, come visit me sometime.

  4. I love apple everything! I even love apple decor. Anyway, my wonderful McIntosh tree bore no, (yes, NO) apples this year after several years of a bountiful harvest. I think we must have had a hard frost after it blossomed. I will keep your Apple Kuchen in mind for next year - or buy apples. :-)
