Easy and Delicious Swedish Apple Dessert Recipe

I'm craving sweets. But this late in the day, I don't have time to whip together a cake from scratch. So, I turn to my trusted Swedish Appelkaka recipe. Yes, I know. The name is unfortunate, but it is so easy and delicious, I just had to share!

  • 8 tablespoons(1 stick) butter
  • 2 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup crushed ginger snaps
  • 2 1/2 cups chunky applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons soft butter

In a heavy skillet, melt butter over moderate heat. When the foam subsides, add bread crumbs, ginger snaps, sugar, and cinnamon and stir with wooden spoon. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes or until mixture is evenly but lightly browned. Preheat over to 350 degrees.

With pastry brush, spread a 1-quart mold, souffle dish, or deep cake pan with the 2 teaspoons of soft butter and cover bottom with 1/2 inch layer of browned crumbs. Pour on a thick layer of applesauce, another layer of crumbs, alternating until all the crumbs and applesauce are used. Top with layers of bread crumbs and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter cut into small bits. Bake 25 minutes in center of oven. Serve with vanilla sauce (or vanilla ice cream).

Vanilysas (Cold Vanilla Sauce)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yokes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups light cream
  • 1 teaspoon light cream

Mix sugar and cornstarch in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Beat the egg yokes and cream together in a separate bowl; pour slowly into sugar and cornstarch pan, beating constantly with a whisk. Continue to whisk over low heat until sauce is smooth and thick. Do not boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Serve chilled.
