This is a very old recipe that my mother made often, when I was a child in Germany. It was our Sunday dessert. You can also use other fruit as a topping, such as plums, fresh peaches or apricots.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 large tart apple, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the egg, milk, butter, sugar, lemon peel, salt and 3/4 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn onto a floured surface. With floured hands, knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Press into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; build up edges slightly.
For topping, in a small bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar. Gently spread over dough. Arrange apple slices over top; brush with butter. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 6 servings.
