Norwegian Apple Cake

Welcome to Fall! To start the season I love preparing a delicious Norwegian apple cake. It's sweet and tart, and best served with a little powdered sugar and vanilla ice cream. It's a simple recipe I'd love for you to try!


1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/4 cups flour

2 large apples or 3 small apples (my favorite to use are honeycrisps)

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Powdered sugar to taste



I like to shred my butter to make it more fine, then beat together butter and sugar until fluffy (at least 4 minutes)

Begin to add the eggs one at a time, make sure to fully incorporate egg before adding the next, at least beating it for 1 minute in between. 

Combine the baking powder and flour and sift into batter, beat until combined well.

Peel and core your apples, cut into thin slices and sprinkle with cinnamon, toss apples to distribute.

Pour half of your batter into a buttered 9 or 10 inch baker and align 1/2 of your sliced apples on top

Pour the remaining batter and top with remaining apple slices

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar, serve with ice cream!
