Is this German? 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.

German Recipe?

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!

Oma's Disclaimer:

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!
