German Apple Cake
60 mins (prep 25, cooking 35)

This makes a small cake that is big on taste. The secret is the lemon juice in the batter and a strong Vietnamese cinnamon. The recipe doubles easily and may be made in a lasagna pan. The apples may be substituted with cherries. Good for after meals, it's also great as a cinnamon breakfast pastry with some coffee. This is adapted from a children's cookbook called Cooking The German Way by Helga Parnell. Understated in sweetness, it is a family favorite that we have made for years. Don't overcook or it may turn out dry.
