Danish Æblekage is a traditional Danish dessert. Æblekage actually means apple cake in Danish, but it is not a cake, and no baking is involved, so I have no idea why we call it cake. I would say it is more like a trifle, and it is one of the easiest desserts I know.
My mom’s recipe is very basic, but you can add your own twist such as marzipan, cinnamon and honey if you like. You can use most kinds of apples but remember to taste the apple puree along the way, as the tartness varies for different sorts of apples, and you might want to add or leave out sugar.
Notes and Recipe by my mom, aka Mummi P
Almond macaroons: In this recipe I use ready-made Danish almond macaroons, which you can get in most grocery stores in Denmark. In other countries they might be harder to find, so you can either make your own, or use breadcrumbs instead.
If you are using breadcrumbs: Melt a little butter in a frying pan and add breadcrumbs and a tablespoon of sugar. Toss it around until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
A good granola, such as the Cardamom and Cinnamon Granola from Hungry Bird Eats can also be used instead of macaroons.
