Made this delicious kuchen variation for a friend’s Oktoberfest party. We made two variations, but this one was the flavor winner!
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced, or more to taste
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350˚F.
- Beat milk, shortening, egg, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Stir 1-1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt into milk mixture until dough comes together. Spread dough out into the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet.
- Spread apples over the dough on the baking sheet.
- Stir 1 cup sugar, melted butter, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl until topping is combined. Sprinkle topping over apples.
- Bake in the preheated oven until apples are tender and topping is golden, about 40 minutes.
