Make the perfect Apple & Sour Cream Slice using this classic recipe. A sweet cake-like base and a tangy sour cream, apple and cinnamon top layer. YUM!
Argh! Every now and then I could swear that I’ve put a recipe on the blog and then when I go to search for it, I realise that I haven’t. This is one of those slices! I can’t believe that it’s taken me this long to put up a recipe for Apple & Sour Cream Slice. Seriously, what is wrong with me!?
I’m sure by now you know that I’m a girl that loves my sugar. Unfortunately you won’t be seeing me ‘quit sugar’ anytime soon. But! This is a great recipe for those of you who who don’t necessarily have as huge a sweet tooth as I do (if you are a sugarholic though, don’t worry, you’ll still love this slice!). The two layers complement each other perfectly as the tangy sour cream and apple top layer balances out the sweet, cake-like base of the bottom layer. Add to that a good shake of cinnamon on top and you have one ridiculously yummy (and not too sweet!) slice.
You can sprinkle plain cinnamon over the top, or, if you like the sweeter things in life, try using cinnamon sugar instead (a little warning: that stuff is addictive!). If you’re wanting to lighten things up a little, then you can always use light sour cream. It’s best to make this slice ahead of time and then pop it into the fridge for a few hours to cool completely. The longer you leave it, the easier it will be to cut into slices.
I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t liked this Apple & Sour Cream Slice and it seriously is just a really, really yummy little thing to make!
