Swabian Apple Cake

Swabian apple cake or Schwäbischer Apfelkuchen is another German dessert perfect for Thanksgiving. 

Sometimes, just a few simple ingredients are the tastiest. The simply delicious apple, raisin almond filling in this cake is covered with a pie-like crust. Sort of  a deep dish or mile high apple pie. A butter, sugar, almond combination is layered on the top and baked in for added sweetness and crunch. 

This recipe is from the Swabian part of Germany. Simple, hearty, unpretentious food is a trademark of that region.

This was hands down the best apple cake I have ever made. Highly recommend it for your holiday table. It's also a good excuse to use up extra apples you may have lying around.
