Apple Cake

This is my new favorite apple cake.  I am a reader of Söta Saker which is a Swedish baking blog written by Theresia.  It’s a fabulous blog and I found this recipe there.  Theresia has a baking cookbook out in Sweden as well. She swore that she has tried all kinds of apple cakes, pies etc. and this one was the best she has ever had.  I had to try it.  And I have made it twice already.  Huge hit and I love it. The cake is a in-between of a pie and a crisp. The great part about this cake is that it is very easy to make and only takes about 30 minutes in the oven.

While I am writing this I am also away on my “babymoon,”  a new word I just learned a few weeks ago. I am in Hawaii, so this is my view most of the day. If you are ever here i wrote this post last year about the best place to eat in Kona, Hawaii.

Hope everyone is enjoying their October and you have to try to make this apple cake. This cake goes very well with some vanilla ice cream.

If you have a favorite apple dessert please link it in the comment section.

Apple cake

Adapted from: Söta Saker

Yields: 6 servings | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 30 minutes

4 medium sized granny smith apples
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
9 tbsp (125g) room temperature butter
½ cup and 2 tbsp (150 ml) sugar
3/4 cups and  2 tbsp (200 ml) all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder

Turn your on 400F.

Peel the apples and cut into ½ inch slices.  In a bowl mix the apple slices with the brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.  Butter a 9” pie form and place the apples in the form flat so they all fit nicely.

In a mixer add the butter, sugar and blend, then add the baking powder and flour and mix.  Remove the dough and place in the refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes.  Then remove and roll out the dough big enough to cover the whole pie form just like a blanket,  You want to cover it end to end but it is ok if you have a few holes. Put into a 400F for 30 minutes.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

    Lucky you to be in Hawaii, the scenery is lovely all year round. I love Swedish baked goods and this looks like a keeper! “in between pie and crisp” that has won me over-I have saved this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the idea that this apple cake is between a pie and a crisp…and I would definitely serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
    Hope you are having a great week :-)

    That sounds good, my grandmother made the best apple cake and I’ve always had a soft spot for a good apple cake.
