Dutch Apple Cake

  3 med peeled, cored tart apples, sliced  1/4 inch thick
1 c plus 3 Tbs sugar, divided
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 c butter, softened
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 c all purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt

in a med bowl, combine apples with 3 Tbs sugar and cinnamon, allow to stand 1 hour. This is called macerating the fruit, a process that draws out the juices. You will use the apples but not the juice, allowing for a firmer cake.

Cream butter and 1 c sugar, add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine flour and salt and add to mixture until smooth. Place batter in greased 9X5 loaf pan.
Push apples into cake batter, close together. Bake at 300 for 1 hour and 40 min or until tests done with a toothpick.. cool 10 min and loosen from pan.
To make even more like a dessert, cut slices and top with caramel sauce and whipped cream, or ice cream.

This is not to be confused with previously publish Dutch Apple Bread, that recipe is here.

This looks like a perfect gift to give to our teachers at the end of the first 6 weeks of school. I see 3 loaves of these in our future...ok...maybe 4 so we can have one as well!
