Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

Filling

  • 2 cups chopped peeled baking apples (about 2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup apple jelly
  • 1 tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice

Cake and Topping

  • 1 1/3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch round or 8-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix all filling ingredients; set aside. In medium bowl, mix 1 1/3 cups flour, the sugar, orange peel, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until small crumbs form. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture for topping. To remaining crumb mixture in bowl, add sour cream, eggs and vanilla; beat with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until blended.
  • 3
    Spread batter in pan. Spoon filling over batter and spread evenly. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and the pecans; pat gently.
  • 4
    Bake 65 to 70 minutes or until light golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging. Cool 30 minutes. Serve warm if desired.

  • Try a piece of cake warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel topping!
  • Braeburn apples work well in this cake; or try another crisp, sweet-tart apple such as Cortland or Gala.
