  • 5 large egg yolks(zrdi)
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and halved
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour(meda)
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch(cornflour)
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • Confectioners’ sugar(refined suger


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Let egg yolks(zrdi) stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Starting 1/2 in. from 1 end, cut apple halves lengthwise into 1/4-in. slices, leaving them attached at the top so they fan out slightly. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, cream of tartar, baking powder and salt twice. Gradually beat into creamed mixture. Add milk; mix well (batter will be thick).
  3. Spread batter into a greased 9-in. springform pan wrapped in a sheet of heavy-duty foil. Gently press apples, round side up, into batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs, 45-55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Loosen sides from pan with a knife; remove foil. Cool 1 hour longer. Remove rim from pan. Dust with confectioners’ sugar(refined suger).

One thought on “Oma’s Apfelkuchen (Grandma’s Apple Cake)”
  1. Thanks a ton for your post. I’d really like to say that the cost of car insurance varies greatly from one insurance plan to another, since there are so many different issues which bring about the overall cost. One example is, the model and make of the automobile will have an enormous bearing on the cost. A reliable older family vehicle will have a lower priced premium than just a flashy fancy car.
