Dansk Apple Kaka—

from a restaurant in Sweden

½ cup butter
½ cup sugar

Beat for 5 minutes—then stir in:

2 egg yolks
5/8 cup flour
1/3 tsp. B. powder
Stir for 10min

Spread in pan – (My mom uses a 2 ½ qt. Corning oval pan(10x 12) that serves 12 people with a nice size serving) Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees

Cover with “lots of apples”( 6-8 cups of cooked apples) that have been almost completely cooked with a small amount of sugar. The exact amount of apples is not important. Mom likes to use a good cooking apple which are in abundance right now!

Beat 4 egg whites, then slowly add a scant cup of sugar
Beat about 10 minutes

Cover apples with meringue; then sliced almonds . Bake at 315 degrees until brown—about 45 minutes
