German Apple Cake

If you are looking for a delicious and quick apple dish, go with this German Apple Cake recipe from What Megan’s Making.  I can always count on Megan’s recipes to be tasty and easy, and this one was no exception. 

In fact, I made this cake when we had some new friends over for games.  We enjoyed it so much before I knew it, we had just one piece left and I realized I hadn’t taken any photos of the cake sliced and served.


Guess that’s a sign of a good recipe, right? 

German Apple Cake – Adapted from What Megan’s Making


  • 2 medium apples
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 C white whole wheat flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg (optional)


Mix together 3/4 C sugar, 1/4 C olive oil, 1/4 C applesauce, 1 egg and a splash of vanilla in a large bowl.  Stir well. 

Mix together 1 C flour, 1/8 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Add a pinch of nutmeg, if desired.  Add to the wet ingredients and stir until incorporated. 

Peel, core and slice apples into 1/2-1 inch pieces. 

Stir in the apple pieces. 

Place into a lightly greased 9x9 or 8x8 (or 9-inch pie plate) glass baking dish. 

Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes, until center is set and the edges are lightly browned. 

Serve warm, with ice cream, if desired. 



  1. Did you accidentally leave out the baking soda?

  2. Great catch! Yes! 1 tsp. baking soda -- add to the flour mixture.
