Danish Apple Cake - A recipe from Denmark

"Æblekage" is a classic Danish dessert. It's not a traditional baked apple cake as the name suggests - it's more like a traditional apple crumble or cobbler with a Danish twist. It's especially delicious served with whipped cream from our own Danish dairies.


750 g Apples
etwas Water
75 g Sugar
150 g Breadcrumbs
75 g Margarine
250 ml Whipped cream


Boil the apples in as little water as possible.

Season with sugar and set aside.

Melt the margarine in a saucepan, and add breadcrumbs and sugar. Stir until the mixture is light brown.

Alternately fill breadcrumbs and applesauce in a glass bowl.

Decorate with whipped cream.
