Gladkokkens Apple Cake - Dangerously good

I do not bake that often, but when autumn comes, there is not much better than a freshly baked apple cake.


Apple cake

Cake batter

  • 250 gram butter
  • 4 pcs egg
  • 2,5 dl sugar
  • 4 dl wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pcs lemon
  • 0,5 dl apple juice

Apple cake filling

  • 100 gram almonds without shell
  • 100 gram brown sugar
  • 1 pcs vanilla bean
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 100 gram butter
  • 6 pcs sour apples

Hot apple cake served with some vanilla ice cream is always popular with both young and old. There is something about the smell of apples, cinnamon and sugar that makes me get water in my mouth. This cake had probably not been recommended by Grete Roede, but that is probably also why it tastes so incredibly good! When I first make cakes and desserts, I do not think about calories, but to bring out the best possible taste. Once you have tried this I think you will completely agree.

Step 1

Whip room tempered butter and sugar completely white. When this has become a smooth and white cream, add 1 egg and beat again. Add 1 egg at a time and beat well between each time. Feel free to use a food processor. When you have whipped in all the eggs, sift the flour and baking powder into the batter and stir well to a smooth mass. Add the grated lemon peel, the juice of 1 lemon and the apple juice. Stir well to leave in the bowl until you are ready to make the cake.


Step 2

Start by running the almonds together with the brown sugar in a blender. Run until it has almost become a sticky batter. Cut up the vanilla bean (you should be able to use the black that is in the middle of the vanilla bean) and add together with the almond and sugar the batter. Mix well with the tempered / hot butter. Leave it in the bowl until you are ready to assemble the apple cake.


Step 3

Cut sour apples into slices and sprinkle with a little cinnamon and brown sugar. Leave on the cutting board until you make the cake. If you do this in advance, I put it in an airtight bag and in the fridge. I'm not so sure that all the apple pieces should be the same. I like that they are in a slightly different thickness and size.


Step 4

Start by greasing the pan with butter. Add a little over half of the batter and spread evenly. Add almond and cinnamon butter and spread out. Take about half of the apples and place in an even layer and press a little into the batter. Then take a new layer of batter, almond and cinnamon butter and the rest of the apples. Save some of the almond and cinnamon butter to spread on top of the cake.


Step 5

Put the cake in the oven at 175 degrees hot air. It takes about 50 minutes. Feel free to check a few times when it is getting close that it is ready. The time varies slightly from oven to oven.

Let the cake rest before you cut it up and serve. It is very good with a little vanilla ice cream next to it.
