This apple pudding cake, aka Apfel-Puddingkuchen, tastes just like a traditional Apple Bread Pudding recipe. It's one of those easy dessert recipes that's delicious served warm with ice cream and sprinkled with cinnamon. It's also one of those dessert recipes because it's a "quick clean-up" version. It's made right in the baking dish, so it's really quick and easy.
Apple Pudding Cake is best served warm, right from the oven. Top it with whipped cream or ice cream for an extra special treat and sprinkle extra cinnamon over it if you wish.
This recipe comes from my German friend, Heidi. It was a recipe she tweaked from a newspaper years ago. She would often treat us to this warm apple pudding cake and was very willing to pass on the recipe for you AND me to enjoy!
Actually, since it's best warm, it's great to make when company comes calling. Not only is it best fresh, but clean up is so easy. Everything for the dough is mixed right in the baking pan. I prefer to use a 9 X 9 inch glass baking dish, because it looks pretty enough to serve from.
This is a fun dessert to make with kids, because it looks really weird when you pour in the water. You'll want to stir. Don't! Don't stir this. It'll work out. Trust me. You'll have delicious apple pudding cake to enjoy once it's baked!
