Does anyone have the recipe for the apple cake served at IKEA's restaurant? I've tried making a few of them I found on the internet that sounded similar, but there is no comparison.
Swedish Apple-Lingonberry Cake
3 tablespoons milk
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2 large baking apples, peeled and cored, and cut in half horizontally
1/2 cup lingonberry jam *(see notes below)
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Extra butter and flour, for greasing and flouring pan
1). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Butter an 8 or 9-inch (20cm or 23cm) springform pan and lightly dust with flour.
2). In a bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and the almond and vanilla extracts. Mix well.
3). In a second bowl, combine the dry ingredients and add the softened butter and half of the milk-egg mixture to the dry ingredients.
4). Using an electric mixer at low speed, blend until the dry ingredients are moistened, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the remaining milk-egg mixture. Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes.
5). Pour the batter into the pan. Carefully place the apple halves, flat side down, in the pan. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of the lingonberry jam into each of the apple holes (which were the apple cores).
6). Bake the cake for 45-50 minutes, or until it's golden brown and a wooden skewer, toothpick, or cake tester inserted into middle of cake comes out clean.
7). Remove cake from oven and place on rack to cool in pan for 20 minutes. Run a knife or a rubber spatula around edge of cake in pan, and then release sides of springform pan. Let cake cool on rack completely. When cake has cooled completely, lightly dust top with confectioners sugar before serving. Slice in wedges and serve with whipped cream, if desired
Makes 6-8 servings.
