Dutch Apple Cake

Ingredients

  • 3 medium tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices (3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the apples, 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; let stand for 1 hour.
  • In another bowl, cream butter and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and beat until smooth.
  • Transfer to a greased 9×5-in. loaf pan. Push apple slices vertically into batter, placing them close together.
