Oktoberfest-Apple Kuchen

Kuchen is the German word from cake and they are traditionally yeast risen confections with lots of spices and fruit. This is an easy variation of a German coffee cake that I found in a Bisquick cookbook about 10 years ago. I used to make this cake often when I was first married, mainly because my mother-in-law requested it constantly!

Apple Kuchen

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 egg
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 egg
1 large apple, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

In a medium bowl mix 1/2 cup sugar, butter and egg together until smooth. Beat in Bisquick and spread over bottom of spring-form pan or round greased pan, bringing batter up on sides of pan (about 1 inch). Mix yogurt and egg in a small bowl until well combined. Stir in apple and spoon mixture over batter in pan. Combine remaining sugar,brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until center is set. Cool for 10 minutes slice like a pie and serve warm.
