Aunt Rose's Apple Kuchen
- Gala apples (about 9 medium sized)
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 T melted Crisco
- 1 egg beaten in 1/2 cup milk
- 7 eggs & can evaporated milk mixed together
- 1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel and thinly slice apples. Place slices in a bowl of water with fresh fruit or whatever you use so the apples won't turn brown. Precook apples in the microwave. About 2 cups of slices in a bowl with 1 cup of water. Cover and heat for about 6-8 minutes. They will be done when you can put a fork in and they are soft but not mushy. Like a cooked potato. Repeat this process until all apples are precooked. Put in strainer and run cold water over so they stop cooking and set aside.
Dough: 2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
Mix all these ingredients together. Add 3 T melted Crisco.
Beat 1 egg in 1/2 cup milk. Add each to dry mixture. Place on a floured board and knead dough until all thoroughly mixed together. It will be a little lumpy.
Roll out dough and place in a jelly roll sized greased pan. Bring it up the sides and trim at the top. You can either flute it or just trim at top.
Beat 7 eggs and a can of evaporated milk together. Add 1/2 cup sugar and beat in with eggs an milk mixture. Place all the apple slices in a single layer side by side in dough lined pan. Pour the custard mixture over top. Sprinkle generous amount of cinnamon on top. Pan will be filled to the top.
Place in a preheated oven 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
You can eat this warm or cold. Keep refrigerated.
