Apple cake – Skånsk äppelkaka
Pare 6-8 apples and slice them into flakes.
Use a greased (with margarine) ovenproof dish and take raspings in the bottom.
Then make one layer of apples and powder with sugar, raspings and cinnamon.
Continue in this way with layers of apple and layers of sugar, raspings and cinnamon.
The top layer should consist of raspings, thin slices of margarine and then sugar and cinnamon.
Put the cake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes.
The oven should have a temperature of 200°C, which is equivalent to 392 Fahrenheit.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or vanilla custard.
In Sweden we have a lot of different recipes but this one is typical for Skåne.
