If you have been following along, you know how excited I am for fall this year. It’s finally getting colder in San Francisco and today I was in the mood for something sweet so I decided to bake! I love anything apple cinnamon flavored and with a touch of vanilla ice cream, Apple Cake is heavenly! I actually like to bake, but I am all for the simpler recipes. I don’t have the patience if you have to fly through hoops and hassles to get the result. After all, I am in it for the baked goods at the end!
I don’t really know where the recipe is originated, but I am very lucky to have a few homemade cookbooks with my moms and both my grandmothers favorite recipes, which is where this one is from :) My grandmother on my dad’s side passed away a few years ago, which totally broke my heart because we were very close. I have so many memories from her cooking up the most delicious meals and dessert throughout the years and I feel incredibly honored to have her recipe booklets!
I figured there is probably a few Norwegian recipe gems that I can share with you, so I started a new series: Norwegian Recipes! Let me know how you like it :)
Ok, moving on to what you came here for: Warm Apple Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream
4.5 oz/125 grams of butter
4.5 oz/125 grams of sugar
4.5 oz/125 grams of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 apples (I used red gala, but you can choose any kind you want)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 395 degrees. (200 Celsius)
What to do
1. Stir together all the dry ingredients (except brown sugar and just a dash of cinnamon)
2. Cut the butter into smaller pieces and stir it in. This is where I could have spent some time cutting out perfectly shaped small cubes of butter, but then I didn’t…
3. Add in the eggs and stir it all together. I was on the hunt for a hand mixer with better attachments and slower speed settings for so long! I was tired of mixing powdered sugar with powdered sugar all over my kitchen! Finally I found target=”_blank”this hand mixer from Amazon. Dough mixers, better regular mixers AND slow speeds. So much easier!
4. Add the batter into a 9-10″ (24 cm) round pan. Peel the apples and cut into thin slices. Push the apples into the cake in circles. Wipe over the dough and add another layer of apples for decoration.
If you have a dishwasher, you can just butter the pan, but because I don’t, I used parchment paper. Yes, I have gone five years with no dishwasher. Five! If you ever think about moving to a big city, make sure you can go without a dishwasher. They do not exist here… but I digress. The cake is now ready for the preheated oven! And while it’s baking for 25-30 min, you have lot’s of time to do the dishes :)
All done! Hope you like it :)Yum! This Norwegian Apple Cake looks amazing! Have to try it! #Norwegian #recipes #applecake Click To Tweet
