Old-fashioned Danish apple cake

Today I served Sunday dinner for my mother in form of grand mother-style food using recipes from "Frøken Jensens Kogebog". We had Danish pork meat balls known as frikadeller served together with boiled potatoes, brown sauce, pickled cucumber and red beet. As dessert we enjoyed old-fashioned Danish apple cake.

I have previously shared a recipe on traditional Danish apple cake with you. This time I roasted the breadcrumbs and sugar in butter prior to putting the cake together.

Old-fashioned Danish apple cake is one of the most easy cake to made at all, as it requires not any baking or freezing at all !!!! It is the style of Danish apple cake, which I grew up with at home. My mother would make the cake during Autumn, when guests were invited over for coffee, she would never serve it as a dessert in connection with a meal, but always together with coffee. In my opinion you can served it as dessert as well.

Even if it is very, very, very easy to make, you still need to make some preparation in advance in form of the apple mash/compote and the roasted breadcrupms. However, this can be done quiet easy be done 1-2 days in advance (as the preparation of the apple boats without peel is quiet time consuming).

You can either serve this cake as a single serving or in one big bowl. From my childhood home I am used to have this cake served in one big bowl. I am not used to the tradition of adding small lumps of red jams such as redcurrant jam, as my mother never did that. However, in some family this is another tradition, when serving Danish apple cake.

Old-fashioned Danish apple cake:
  • 1 kg apple - to be cored, cut into boat shape and peeled
  • 2 dl water
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 teaspoon home-made vanilla sugar or 1 teaspoon commercial vanilla sugar
  • 100 g breadcrumbs
  • 50 g sugar
  • 50 butter
  • whipped dairy whipped cream, 35-40% fat¨
  1. Bring the apple boats and water to the boil in medium size cooking pot under lid.
  2. Gentle boil the apples, until they are soft.
  3. Mash the apple boats into a homogeneous mass.
  4. Stir in the sugar and vanilla sugar.
  5. Taste the apple mask, add more sugar, if you prefer a sweeter taste.
  6. Cold down the apple mash.
  7. Mix the sugar and breadcrumbs together.
  8. Melt the butter on a frying pan.
  9. Roast the breadcrumbs-sugar mass in butter, while stirring.
  10. Keep roasting until the breadcrumbs are golden in colour and crips.
  11. Cool down the breadcrumbs. Stir it from time to time.
  12. Start by filling a layer of breadcrumbs into the glass/bowl.
  13. Afterwards fill apple mash on top.
  14. Filling a second layer of breadcrumbs on top.
  15. Followed by a second layer of apple mash/compote.
  16. Continue to fill layer of breadcrumbs and apple mash, until the glass/bowl is almost filled.
  17. The last layer is breadcrumbs followed by a finishing touch of whipped dairy cream.
  18. Let the apple cake rest in the refrigerator for 1-4 hours before serving it. It can also be eaten right away.

    Home-made juice of Ingrid Marie apples

    The apples from the annual apple harvest, which were damaged in some sort, has now be turned into home-made juice of pure Ingrid Marie apples.

    I always remove the core of the apples, when I juicing appples, as I juicing with the apple kernels gives bitterness in the final juice.

    The juice on these Ingrid Marie apples has a rich red colour combined with a very intense sweet aromatic taste. The sweetness is so high, that you can only drink a small glass of juice at the time.

    Next time, when  I have damaged Ingrid Marie apples I will not juice these apples, but instead of make apple mash, which could be used as ingredients in the classic Danish apple cake.

    Home-made apple juice:

    • Apples - core and damaged parts removed
    1. Prepare the apple prior to juicing on juicer
    2. Juice the apples.
    3. Store the juice cold in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
    4. Enjoy as cold juice.

These cookies combined the word "scary" and liquorice, where my use of liquorice can scare my good friends from Horsens !!!

    When tasting these cookies my good friends from Horsens were not scared at all ! The taste of liquorice was almost "invisible", so next time I will add in some more liquorice. You could taste the liquorice, when you were bitting into a pice of the liquorice (Heksehyl).

    2. Add in the egg, and whip for another 2 minutes at speed 2.
    3. Mix flour, baking soda, salt, diced chocolate and diced Heksehyl.
    4. Stir by hand this flour mix into the sugar-egg-butter mix. Until stir until the mass is homogeneous.

    Harvesting marigold in the garden

    Yesterday late afternoon the weather permitted me to cut all my many hosta leaves, before they had started to collapse. At the same time I also cut the last heads of my marigolds along the house. So now I am drying the flower petals for later use in my kitchen in either cake or tea.

    I have placed the flower heads with the head down on a tea towel, and I move around with the flower heads from time to time. The marigolds should dry, until you very easy can remove the petals from the flower core without any resistance at all. I am not drying the flower heads over heat or in the oven. And the flower heads should not be placed in sun light during the drying process.

    Apple harvest of 2016 is in house

    My "big" apple harvest is in the house or rather the harvest is stored outside the house :-)

    I have two apple tree in my "little" park. One unknown apple tree in pillar sharp and the second tree is a "family" tree, which should have 3 different sorts of apples, however I can see two different sorts (Philippa and Ingrid Marie).

    Today I have harvested all my apples, as the apples have been tumbling down, when the wind is busy in the garden. The apples harvest has been divided into two portions. One portion of apple, which will be stored, and the second portion of apples with damages, which will be juiced.

    Two years ago I brought some old fashion looking apple storage boxes.

    The first I stored my apples in a small outbuilding, where the mice held a big party, where I and Hannibal the Cat were not invited.

    Last year I decided to store my apples next to the kitchen door outside the house, so Hannibal the Cat could take care of the mice. Here the blackbirds had an apple feast of their own, again without issuing any invitations to me.

    This year I am trying out a new storage place, this time on the balcony on the North side of the house, and placing some newspaper on top. Hopefully I have an apple feast for myself this year. And if you come around you are invited to taste one of my home-grown apples :-)

    While I was harvesting I could see how many figs from the second fruit setting, which my fig tree is having. However, the second fruit setting will never mature in Denmark due to our climate. So I can only harvest figs from the first fruit setting of the season, which also was quiet big this year, so I actually made fig jam of figs from my garden.

    Skagen´s shopping

    This weekend my mother and I went on one night stay to Skagen (my birthday gift to my mother). Besides from filling up the memory with the wonderful paintings of the Skagen´s painters, I brought back some more tangible stuff such as:

    Clafoutis with pears and vanilla

    At last I have made this recipe on clafoutis with pears and vanilla, which I found in the weekly magazine Femina back in 2013 (issue 9/2013) !!!

    Instead of baking these clafoutis in creme bruleé bowl, I used some ramekins, which were not broad enough. So the clafoutis dough was raising a lot during the baking almost like a souffle, and then they collapsed. The taste was great, and now I know, that I wish for Christmas :-)

    Instead of pears you would also make these clafoutis with cherries or raspberries.

    Clafoutis with pears and vanilla: - 6 servings

    • 4 eggs
    • 75 g sugar
    • ½ vanilla pod - only the corns
    • 5 cardamon kernels - freshly grained
    • 50 g (cake) wheat flour
    • 25 g butter - melted
    • 2 dl full-fat milk
    • 4 pears
    1. Heat up the oven to 180'C.
    2. Glaze the forms with oil or butter.
    3. Whip eggs, sugar, vanilla corn and cardamon very well together.
    4. Stir in the wheatflour, followed by the melted butter and milk.
    5. Core and peel the pears. Cut the pears into slices of ½ cm.
    6. Place the pears slices in the forms.
    7. Pour the clafoutis dough on top of the pear slices.
    8. Bake the clafoutis at 180'C for 20-25 minutes.
    9. Cool down.
    10. Prior to serving, sprinkle them with icing sugar.

    Gin shopping in Helsinki

    During a recent business trip I brought this bottle of Finnish gin being described as the world´s best for gin & tonic !!! It was a  bottle of gin from Kyrö DistilleryCompany. I still have to see, if this gin is mentioned in any of the two books on gin, which I brought back with from London.

    Pumpkin muffins with apple and walnut

    During my busy pumpkin week-end in my kitchen I also baked some muffin with grated pumpkin inside.

    I was daring enough to bring these muffins with me to work, so they could donate a small sum of money, when they enjoy these muffins for their afternoon coffee. The donation of 177 DKK was afterwards forwarded to A Race Against Breast Cancer.

    The texture of these muffins is quiet wet due to all the pumpkin meat, so it quiet tricky to bake them enough without over baking them. They do not raise a lot during the baking, which I think again is due to the high amount of pumpkin meat. So another time I would decrease the amount of pumpkin meat from 500 g to 250 g.

    Pumpkin muffin with apple and walnut: - 35 muffins
    • 500 g pumpkin meat - roughly grated
    • 200 g walnuts - roughly chopped
    • 2 apples - roughly grated
    • 5 eggs
    • 300 g sugar
    • 1 vanilla pod - only the vanilla corn
    • 3 dl rapeseed oil
    • 2 dl milk
    • 400 g (cake) wheat flour
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • pinch of muscat nut
    • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon all specie
    • pinch of cardamon
    1. Heat up the fan oven to 170'C.
    2. Add grated apple and pumpkin and chopped walnuts into a large mixing bowl.
    3. Add egg, milk, rapeseed oil, sugar and vanilla corn together in another mixing bowl, and whip it together.
    4. Add flour, baking powder and all the different spices together in a third mixing bowl. Stir everything together.
    5. Stir in the liquid phase into the apple, pumpkina and walnut mass. Afterwards stir in the flour mix and stir everything well together.
    6. Fill the dough into muffin forms.
    7. Bake the muffins at 170'C (fan oven) for 20 minutes.
    8. Cool down the muffins.

    Esters æblestænger - Ester´s apple sticks

    "Hjemmebagt" - 73 recipes - 36 accomplished = 37 recipes to bake

    After a more than a year I have again been baking from the great bead book called Hjemmebagt.
    This time I have been baking the recipe called Esters æblestænger as my contribute to the cake regatta at the rowing club, where the topic was kringle (pretzel).

    Both taste and texture is excellent. And I am actually quiet pleased with the look of the final cake. After tasting the original recipe I already have some suggestions in mind for further modifications, perhaps sprinkling the apple boats with either cinnamon sugar or chai sugar, mixing in some marzipan in sugar and butter layer.

    Cake regatta at the rowing club

    This morning I was busy baking my contribution in form of Ester´s æblestænger for the annual cake regatta at my rowing club. The theme this year for the cake regatta as pretzel. The winner of last year´s cake regatta decided the theme and actual time for next year´s cake regatta.

    We started the cake regatta with a small rowing tour, so we build some appetite for enjoying the many home-made pretzels.

    Out of 9 rowers turned 7 rowers came together with their pretzel. All the pretzels were given a number prior to the tasting session, so the identify of the baker was unknown. After the tasting each pretzel eater can given a piece of paper, where you could write the number of your preferred pretzel.

    In September the theme of my kitchen was apples, where I created 4 recipes (apple-walnut sconescarrot cassarole with apple twistapple buns and apple curd).

    I will as inspiration for October share this recipe on with you on happy Halloween soup.
