A Dessert Called Sunken Apple Cake Goes By Many Names  

Because the sliced apples seem to be "sinking" into the cake, sunken apple cake is a light and easy dessert with a captivating appearance.   

Although its name in English is fairly self-explanatory, this delightful treat goes by several names in its native Germany.  

Germans strongly assert their claim to the sunken apple cake, even if its exact origins are unclear. The cake is referred to by its traditional name, "versunkener apfelkuchen,"  

The cake is prepared similarly to the American form, although the lumps of hasselbacked fruit may look more evenly displaced because German apples are usually smaller than American ones.
