2 decilitres of sugar
100 grams of butter
2 decilitres of milk
4 decilitres of plain flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
4-6 good cooking apples (preferably more sour than sweet)
Sugar and cinnamon-mix
(2 handfuls of dried cranberries/raisins, 1 handfuls of almonds/hazelnuts)
Making Homemade Norwegian Apple Cake
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Crack the egg in a bowl and add sugar and whisk with a hand mixer until well combined. Melt the butter and add it to the sugar mix. Add milk, flour and baking powder and beat in with the hand mixer. Pour the dough into a round cake tin, lined with baking paper and butter the sides of the tin. Peel the apples and cut them in half. Take out the apple core and slice the apples into slices. Place the apples into the cake, one outer circle and one inner. Drizzle sugar and cinnamon on top. (I have a shaker where I have sugar and cinnamon mixed already, I like using it for my cappuccinos). For a more “adult cake” you can chop almonds and cranberries and drizzle on top before the sugar-cinnamon mix, but the cake is also great without.
Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minute to an 1 hour. Use a cake pin after 45 minutes to check whether it needs longer. Enjoy with ice cream and coffee.
