This is a recipe handed down from mother to daughter. The recipe originates in Romania and comes to this country via Austria.

Measurements are in handfuls, which equates to 1 cup for 1 handful.

The pan size can vary, however, my wife bakes this apple kuchen in a 10x15 inch pan.

2 sticks soft butter
1 tsp. salt
1 lemon, juice and rind
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 whole egg and 4 egg yolks
1 tbsp. sour cream
1 handful confectioners' sugar
all-purpose flour

Mix the above ingredients together, with enough flour to form a soft dough. (Add another tablespoon of sour cream if dough isn't soft enough.)

Divide dough in half and roll out. Place dough in bottom of pan. Put some plain bread crumbs on the dough to help absorb the moisture. Add the filling, which is your favorite apple, grated and mixed to taste with cinnamon and sugar. Add the other half of the rolled out dough. Pinch the sides together and bake in a 350F. oven for about 1/2 hour or until the top is golden brown.


After the kuchen has cooled, spread a mixture of 3 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar with 1-3 teaspoons of water. (Do not make this mixture too thin.) Cut to bite-size pieces. This kuchen will melt in your mouth. Enjoy!
