Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 3 C. Flour
  • 2 t. Baking Powder
  • ⅛ t. Salt
  • ¼ t. Cloves, ground
  • ¼ t. Nutmeg, ground
  • 6 oz. Butter, (cold is fine)
  • ¾ C. Sugar
  • 4 large Granny Smith apples(I used golden delicious to great effect)
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¾ C. Milk
  • 2 T. Sugar(for sprinkling on top of cake)
  • FOR THE CUSTARD:
  • 6 large Egg Yolks
  • 6 T. Sugar
  • 1½ C. Whole Milk
  • 1½ t. Vanilla

Directions

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • Grease and flour an 8 or 9 round springform pan. Using an 8 pan will give you a taller cake.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, cloves and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl. Make sure the bowl is very large to allow room for the apples to be folded in.
  • Cut the butter into the flour using your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Add the ¾ C. sugar to the flour mixture and mix in.
  • Peel the apples and slice them into uniform pieces. This cake works best and gets that chunky apple look if the slices are about ¼ wide and then cut into 3 pieces.
  • Toss the apples into the flour mixture and combine them thoroughly.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and milk together. Add to the apples and flour and mix in with a large spatula until just combined. Batter will be thick and dough-like.
  • Transfer the dough into the prepared cake pan and flatten the top surface using the back of your spatula.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the cake.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes. Test the center for doneness. The top of the cake should be golden brown. Serve slices with custard sauce.
  • FOR THE CUSTARD SAUCE:
  • *note that this sauce is not a thick, pudding like sauce. It should have a pour-able, just thickened consistency when done.
  • Place the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until pale yellow, 2-3 minutes. Place the milk in a medium saucepan and bring just to a boil. Slowly whisk the hot milk into the egg/sugar mixture. Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan and stir over medium heat until custard thickens, about 4 minutes. Custard should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Mix in the vanilla. Transfer to bowl or serving saucer.
  • Serve warm or cold over apple cake.
