Apple tart on turquoise tableDoes 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

Garnish (optional)
Whipped Cream
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.

OK Found IT

The recipes aren't the IKEA Apple Cake, but they look delish and I appreciate the fact that you took the time to send them.
The IKEA Apple Cake is shaped like a tall slice of cake, top and bottom have a floured baked piece and the rest of the cake is nothing but apples (with spices and a thicked gel), so the recipe might have something like 4 cups of apples, chopped up, in it.

For the crust:
2/3 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups All Purpose flour

For the Filling:
2 large eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar


8 oz. Sour Cream
16 cups sliced apples (I used Granny Smith)
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

For the streusel topping:
1 cup and 2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 of a stick of unsalted butter, room temperature

To make the crust:
In a medium mixer bowl using the paddle attachment, mix the butter until soft.
Add the 1/2 cup sugar to the butter and beat until combined. Add all of the flour and beat until the mixture looks crumbly.

Pour the mixture into your 10" springform pan. Press the crumbs to cover the bottom of the pan, and halfway up the sides. Press firmly. (Try to get the thickness fairly even all over, but dont worry if it looks lumpy)

Put the crust into the oven for about 18 minutes at 350, until it becomes slightly golden around the top edge. Remove, set aside

To prepare the filling:
In a medium mixing bowl, using the paddle attachment, beat the eggs until foamy. Add the 1/4 sugar. Beat for about 5 minutes, until the mixture looks thick and lemon colored Gently fold in the sour cream.

In a Large saucepan, combine the apples with a small amount of water (2 cups or so).
Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer the apples, covered, for about 3 minutes just until theyre tender. (stir after a minute or so) Rinse with cold water, and drain them well. Place in large bowl.

In small bowl combine the 1 cup sugar and cinnamon. Pour over Apples. Stir to coat

Spread coated apples evenly over the crust. Pour the sour cream mixture evenly over that and spread it with a spatula as needed.

To Prepare the streusel topping:
Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl; add in the butter with a pastry knife or fork. Blend until you see some pea-sized clumps.

Sprinkle the streusel evenly over the top of the sour cream layer.
Bake the cake for about 35 minutes at 350, until the top is quite golden. Let the cake cool completely, on a rack, before you attempt to remove the side of the springform pan.

Eat and enjoy!
