I am posting this for the ZWT3 (Scandinavia). I got this recipe from a old cookbook, which my mother bought me for Christmas years ago, and I love this book. I have not tried it yet, but it looks very easy and interesting. Finnish apple snow is tradionally served in a glass bowl with a pinch of cinnamon sprinkled on the top.
- 500 g tart apples, peeled cored and sliced
- 4 egg whites
- 125 g caster sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch salt
- Cook apples in a covered pan with little or no water, stirring frequently. When apples are cooked add a little sugar to taste, and whisk to a smooth puree. If it is too stiff add just a little boiling water. Allow to cool.
- Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl and gradually add the sugar, beating as fast as you can until whites form stiff peaks.
- Add lemon juice to the apple puree in another large bowl.
- Stir in a little of the beaten egg whites, and finally fold in the rest of the whites until well blended.
- Pour into a glass bowl to serve, and sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon on top.
I left my apples a little chunky and added apple pie spices. This is a great dessert or breakfast. I was looking for something that would actually make me feel like I had dessert and not some little tidbit(on a diet) I liked mine best chilled with some whipped cream. Thanks for posting! I'll make this one again.
*Made for Aussie/NZ Forum Tag Game* We really enjoyed this dessert. It was so simple and surprisingly light- just melt in the mouth texture. Very dreamy! Next time I think that I'll make extra stewed apples and put some at the base of each dish and then top with the Apple Snow. This easily serves 6 as is -giving quite a good sized dessert. I used 3 Granny Smith apples for this recipe. A very economical dish too. Thanks for another great recipe :)
This was great! I made one recipe worth for 7 people and ended up having more than that many servings - perhaps my serving size is smaller, which ended up being a good thing since most the family had seconds.
