Danish Apple Cake (Æblekage)

Apples, Danish, Dessert, Traditional

It’s officially Autumn so my first recipe for Great British Chefs had to involve apples as they are so abundant right now. Danish Apple Cake (Æblekage) is more of a dessert than a cake. I’ve re-created my mother’s version of it so do go and check it out.

    Sometimes I need a second helping of trifle as it’s so light. I imagine I’d happily scoff a second bowl of this too.

  5. Sarah Lewis

    My mum made this for Christmas and the adults loved it – not as filling as Christmas pud!

    The recipe is easy (I had a look). Thanks for this. I’d like to try it. Are bramley apples ‘cooking’ apples and dessert apples those you might eat off the tree?

    1. Camilla

      Yes Bramleys are cooking apples and those you can eat without cooking are dessert apples:-) Enjoy your baking:-)

    This looks so delicious. A delightful twist on the old trifle recipe/

  16. Janice

    My mum used to make this in individual glass dishes. I remember one of my boyfriends being so impressed he kept trying to get invited back to my parent’s home for a meal!

    1. Camilla

      Aah, I bet your kid’s other halves were the same with your cooking Janice:-)

  21. Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    1. Camilla

    I woulden’t mind some of that. Looks really nice xxx

    1. Camilla

    Yet another fab recipe. I love anything with rolled oats in – they are so versatile.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you so much. Hope you get a chance to make it:-)

  25. Ursula Hunt

    Looks delicious but seems a bit like a trifle I wonder why they call it a cake?

    1. Camilla

      It does solidify in the fridge a bit like cake and is served with coffee and not just as a dessert:-)

  26. Jo Booth

    looks delicious, I think I will have a go at making this 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Do let me know how you get on:-)
