Norwegian apple cake (Eplekake)

This Norwegian apple cake is an authentic, simple and exceptional cake. Classics are classics for a reason! Although I have never been to Norway, I have had versions of this cake throughout my life. This is a butter cake filled with cinnamon sugar apples, which goes perfectly with whipped cream, vanilla or plain ice cream! You can enjoy this apple cake for breakfast with a cup of coffee, as an afternoon snack or even for dessert!! But I will say that while I like this warm cake, it’s one of those cakes that (in my opinion) is better the next day!

What are the best types of apples for baking?

There are so many apples to choose from when you arrive at the supermarket! They are all so beautiful, but know that not all apples are good for cooking! I almost exclusively use Granny Smith apples when making this apple cake. These tangy apples retain their structure during cooking, without turning into total mush, and are sweetened so that their flavor really comes out!

Apples to avoid in baking:

Some apples are just too soft or don’t have enough flavor to pack a punch when cooked. Here is a list of apples to enjoy fresh or made into applesauce!

  • McIntosh
  • Macoun
  • Gala
  • delicious red

Ideal apples for cooking:

These apples are firm, sweet and a bit tart. They retain their structure when cooked and their flavor really comes out without getting too mushy!

  • Granny Smith
  • pink lady
  • Braeburn
  • Corland
  • Fuji
  • Honeycrisp
