Eplekake/Norwegian Apple Cake

Scandinavian cuisine includes three countries, yes Norway, Denmark and Sweden. And these three countries shares similar cuisine style. The most important meal of Scandinavians is their breakfast as they start their work early in the morning. Though Scandinavian cuisine goes for easy cooking process, most of their dishes are quite popular around the world. Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Scandinavian Recipes' as theme. Obviously i picked three different dishes from two of those three countries, and my today's post is from Norway. Eplekake is Norwegian Apple cake, this cake is quite easy one to bake at home with quick procedure.

Eplekake, Norwegian Cake with apples

Norwegian Apple cake is definitely a delightful dessert or cake to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea. Extremely easy to bake, this apple cake calls for  easy ingredients which is mostly available in our pantry. You doesnt need any fancy ingredients to bake this incredible cake. Though i crossed many versions of baking this cake, i opted for a tart pan as much as i like the original recipe went for. We enjoyed thoroughly this fabulous apples loaded cake for our evening snacks and my kids had this cake even for their breakfast.
