Apea Cake

50 Min

From the hills of Pennsylvania comes this Amish-style cake full of solid goodness. Try it with your morning cup of coffee or tea for a real breakfast treat.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into 12 pieces
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon; stir to combine well. Cut in the butter, using a pastry cutter or fork, until the mixture is crumbly and forms pea-sized clumps. Stir in the raisins and walnuts.
  3. In a 1-cup glass measuring cup, beat the egg with a fork. Add the vanilla and enough milk to equal 2/3 cup total liquid. Add to the flour mixture and stir until thoroughly moistened.
  4. Transfer the batter to a 9-inch pie plate that has been coated with cooking spray. Smooth out the top of the batter.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
