Apple Kuchen, pronounced [koo-khuhn], originated from Germany and is a bread-like cake filled with fruit, sugar and/or nuts.
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Grease a large rectangular baking dish (9 x 13) with cooking spray.
For the streusel:
Measure the sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter into a small mixing bowl and combine with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles small crumbs. Set aside.
For the Kuchen:
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and butter. Use a pastry blender or your hands to blend all the ingredients so it resembles large crumbs.
In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks then add the vanilla extract and milk. Pour this into the crumbled dry ingredients and mix until it comes together. Press this dough into the bottom and up the sides of the greased baking dish.
Arrange the apple slices in 3 lengthwise rows on top of the crust. Sprinkle the streusel over the apples. Bake for 35–40 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the apples look deliciously glazed.
This can be served right out of the oven or hours later and with or without ice cream.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
