Jewish apple cake is a kind of dense cake made with apples and sold mostly in Pennsylvania in the United States.[1] It has limited known connections to Jewish cuisine. It is thought[by whom?] that this cake is a Pennsylvania Dutch culinary item that was erroneously attributed to Jews because it seemed "old world". It may also be considered Jewish because it contains no dairy, and it may therefore be eaten with meals containing meat, in accordance with Jewish laws of kashrut.
