Danish Apple Cake

Serves 8 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 50 minutes   Rated:

I have been going through the recipe books that my mum wrote for me over the years. There are loads of great recipes in them and they will show up on here bit by bit as my hips and covid allow! This cake is the sort of thing I don't really make often as I have no one to feed it to. (The neighbours got lucky on this occasion!) But I remember this was the sort of fragrant bake we would come home to on a cold day after school. Thanks for the memories and the cake mum.

The toffee or caramel nutty topping is quite delicious and transformed this apple cake into quite elegant and above average! (I don't believe in average and neither did my mum!)

I hope you love it.
