Apfelkuchen-Super Fast and Super Yummy!!!

My son is taking German and his class was having a food day, where everyone brings in an authentic German dish. So guess what he volunteered to bring? Go ahead…take a wild guess what he thought his loving mother, the vegetarian would like to make and bring in for the class to enjoy? BRATWURST!!! Are you kidding me??? Have I mentioned that I’m a veggie? And even if I wasn’t a veggie, I wouldn’t touch a bratwurst!!! EEEWWWW!!!! Do you know what’s in a brat? Again…EEEEWWWWW!!!! Needless to say, I asked him to reconsider and beg his teacher to let him change to something a little more vegetarian friendly! I was thinking Käse Spätzle, but he did one better…Apfelkuchen!!! PERFECT!!! Or… it would have been if he had given me… I don’t know… a 12-hour notice. No… I heard about it at 11:00PM and he needed it by 6:30AM!!! REALLY!!!!???? Yes… REALLY!!!! Luckily, I had 6 Granny Smiths and just enough flour to pull this together and deliver it right on time! WHEEEWWWW!!!
