Originally found with a sack of apples in the cellar of a home in Sweden, this recipe proved to be quite popular amongst my family for years. The cake which is a cross between an apple pie and an apple cake has a lovely rich texture, tastes great and is very simple to make.

This recipe was very simple to make and tastes delicious! I added a teaspoon of nutmeg though to give a bit of kick and served it with vanilla ice cream. My friends insisted on getting their hands on the recipe. Will definitely be making again!
