Simple Apple Cake Portuguese-Style


To make these delightful squares, all you need is flour, milk, oil, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and apples, which you are likely to have on hand. The dough comes together quickly, and it's easy work to roll it out and assemble the "cake" by layering one half of dough with cinnamon-sugar, apple slices, more cinnamon-sugar, and remaining dough half. Cut into squares, bake, and serve.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup oil
  • salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
