This is exactly like the apple kuchen my German grandmother used to make. I have been looking for a recipe for the vanilla sauce that she served with the kuchen for years and so happy that I found this recipe!

I doubled this recipe and served to seniors yesterday at a retirement home and they finished the pan quickly. I plan to enlarge the recipe and serve to seniors at church. My husband really liked this recipe and it's a keeper.
