"Apple Fish" a la La Tascha

I have found this recipe on a apple cake called Æblefisk (=Apple Fish) on this blog La Tascha æblefisk med marcipan. It just looked so tasty, that I decided to make a portion of apple mash, so I could bake these "Apple Fish" myself. I have only made some thiny modifications to this recipe.

My apple mash is not very sweet, so the use of marzipan is providing a good level of sweetness. If you have no marzipan to use or if you do not like marzipan, you need to increase the sugar level in the apple mash.

Today I served a new portion of these "Apple Fish" for my work colleagues. And we had a discussion, why the name is "Apple Fish" (Æblefisk) for these cakes. No one had any idea why, perhaps you can help us with an explanation ?

"Apple Fish" a la La Tascha:

  • 1 portion puff pastry (ready to use)
  • 1 small piece of marzipan
  • 2 dl apple mash
  • 1 egg
  • pearl sugar

  1. Heat the oven to 200'C (conventional oven).
  2. Cut the puff pastry into 8 equal size squares.
  3. Divide the marzipan into 8 pieces as. Squeeze into a thin layer.
  4. Place the marzipan on a triangle part of the square.
  5. Cut the apple mash on top.
  6. Whip the egg together to homogeneous mass.
  7. Bast the edges of the puff pastry squares
  8. Fold the square into a triangle.
  9. Press the edges together using a fork.
  10. Bast the top of the puff pastry with the egg
  11. Sprinkle with pearl sugar.
  12. Bake the "Apple Fish" at 200*C for 10 minutes
  13. Cool the "Apple Fish" slight before serving them.
  14. These "Apple Fish" will be crispy the day of baking, the day after baking they loos the crispiness, so they are still very eatable.
