Or sheds are still full of the nice apples we picked a few weeks ago. As my husband pointed out, it is very nice to eat apple cakes (almost) every weekend, made from our own apples. And I like variety, so I took my big Danish baking book, and opened it at the apple cakes. I chose a recipe they call Let Æbletærte, which can be translated to either light, or easy apple cake, but since it is quite full of suger and butter, I chose to go with easy, because it is very easy to make, and results in a light texture. But not “light” from a diet point of view 🙂
I have changed it a little bit, and here is the recipe I followed:
For the cake:
- 2 eggs
- 175 g sugar
- 100 g melted butter
- 125 g flour
For the topping:
- 3-4 apples
- 25 g chopped almonds
- 1 sp sugar
- 1/2 sp cinnamon
Beat eggs and sugar together until its hard, add melted butter and flour, mix it and spread it out in a baking form (about 26 cm in diameter), that is greased with butter and sprinkled with breadcrumbs.
Peel the apples and cut them into boat shapes. Mix them with half of the sugar and the cinnamon. Place the apple pieces on the top of the dough, and push them gently into it. Sprinkle rest of the sugar and chopped almonds on top. Bake it at 200 Celsius for about 30 mts.
Enjoy it warm, probably with a hint of whipped cream, or vanilla ice-cream 🙂
