Hope this works! Hope this is the right recipe.
This one is called Scandanavian Apple cake.
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.
you might try www.copykat.com They have recipes from many chain restaurants. Happy hunting!

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
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!
