Apple Kuchen

Apple Kuchen is a tasty German cake perfect for a fall or winter treat!


  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • ¼ cup margarine, softened
  • ½ cup flaked coconut
  • 4 large Granny Smith apples
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉ (175℃). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch pan. Peel, core and cut each apple into 8 wedges. Set aside for now.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cake mix, coconut and margarine until crumbly. Pat the mixture lightly into the prepared pan, building up the edges slightly to form a crust. Arrange the apple wedges on top.
  3. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the apples and the cake mixture.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the sour cream. Drizzle over the top of the cake.
  5. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes, or until the edges of the cake are golden brown and the apples are tender. Serve warm or let cool.
