Keep all the ingredients in your cupboard ready for unexpected company. You whip up this easy apple cake in minutes.
Is this German food? Nope. Is it delicious? Yep!
This is one of the easy-to-make quick dessert recipes that comes from my friend, Penny, and has become a favorite of ours.
Let me see if I can describe it?
It's chewy and sweet. It reminds me of a candy bar, only nice and moist with the apples.
How German is this recipe? It's NOT!
But it makes a great finish after a traditional German meal. Served with a good coffee, it's a treat, for sure! Whipped cream is a nice touch!
I really like cinnamon, pineapple, and coconut. It's all in this cake, including the apples.
My husband really only likes the apples. Cinnamon, pineapple, and coconut aren't on his "like" list.
However, Penny's cake looked delicious: I made it anyway.
It was so easy. I just dumped everything into the pan, baked it. Then, I offered my hubby a little bit to try. He wanted more. And more. And more!
His comment? "It's like eating peanuts. Can't stop with just one bite!"
Guess what's now stocking my cupboard? Yep, the ingredients for this Apple Cake!
Most cakes such as nut-based cakes, pound cakes, and dump cakes, can last sitting out on the counter for about 4-5 days. But make sure you keep it covered to keep it from drying out. The same rule applies for the fridge. Your cake should keep for up to 5 days covered tightly with plastic wrap. It's totally up to you if you want to store it on the counter or store it in the fridge.
Cakes can take up a lot of fridge room, so if that's the case for you, yes, keeping it out will work. Just be sure that you cover it tightly to keep the moisture from escaping.
Here we have Oma's Rhubarb Dump Cake. This is such a refreshing summery dessert that is absolutely wunderbar for family get-togethers. Use your freshly picked rhubarb from the garden and give this lecker recipe a try!
While this style of cake may not be German, they're still amazingly yummy. If apple isn't your style, give this rhubarb one a go. You won't be disappointed, and neither will your guests.
An interesting name, I know. But seeing how it's made, the name suits the cake. To get this cake ready and prepped to bake, you quite literally dump all of the ingredients into your pan. So, that's what they decided to call it.
Dump cakes often get confused for cobblers due to their similar look and tastes. But there can be a few differences. Cobblers are baked low and slow and can be done in the slow cooker even. Dump cakes will often still have some cake-like shape to them and will almost always be done in the oven.
Yes, sometimes quick wins over nutritious. Sometimes quick wins over German-style cooking.
This dessert is something that goes so quick that I'll use it when I need something that's a treat ... that everyone loves.
I like things that are easy to make. Things I can have all the ingredients already in the pantry. Things I don't need to go shopping for.
This recipe is one of those. The only problem with it is that portion control is so difficult ... because it's so YUMMY!
