Soaked Apple Cake

Adapted from this recipe, we love this cake either as a dessert or as a Shabbat breakfast! The original recipe calls for unpeeled red apples, but I like to use peeled granny smiths (though Northern Spy apples are fantastic when I can find them, and I’ll bet Golden Delicious would be lovely too!)

  • 2 1/2 cup freshly ground white wheat flour (the original recipe called for soft wheat, but hard works too)
  • 1 cup buttermilk or yogurt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter 

Mix together, cover and let sit in a warm spot for 8-24 hours.

  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sucanat
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs

I used my Kitchen Aid to mix this in as I find it rather difficult to blend eggs into a thick soaked dough by hand, but a little elbow grease will get the job done eventually.

  • 2 cups peeled and chopped apples

Fold into batter and scrape into a greased and floured tart pan.

  • 3 tbsp demarara sugar

Sprinkle on top of cake and bake in a preheated 400F oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown and firm.
