Nordic apple cake style :: Tarta de manzana estilo nórdico

I just love blogs. I am addicted (my boyfriend nods haha!). I actually love reading ANYTHING: books, magazines, shampoo labels, and blogs are in my daily reading list.

One of my favourite deco blog is Delikatissen. Kati is the owner and she writes about nordic decoration and desing. No, she is not an architect or interior designer. Her passion for the nordic style comes from the years she lived in Denmark. 
Among all decoration topics she writes about, you can find a small tag up in the blog that says DESSERTS. There you can find so many nordic sweet recipes that delight your eyes right away. The best thing? They are EASY to make so, how appealing is it? A lot to me! That's why I dared to cook her recipe and post every single step here.

You know our crush for Sweden so the whole nordic way-of-life is our weakness.

  • 1 ready rolle puff pastry
  • 4 medium apples
  • 1 spoon of butter
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • 2 tbs of cinnamon
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 egg
First of all, wash, peel and cut the apples into small squared pieces. 
Sprinkle with the lemon juice. 

Add the sugar and the cinnamon and mix everything together.

Grab a pan and melt the butter. Then, add the apple pieces and cook them for 10 minutes medium temperature until they are softer (prick them with a fork to check).

Choose a mold. I took a 20 cm width x 5 cm height crystal one (I think a 15 cm width should have worked better for this cake). 

Grease the mold with a little bit of butter and cover with the puff pastry. 
Prick the dough with a fork not to let it pump up. With the dough left, make small strips that we will use later to "cover" the surface of our cake.
Now, empty the apples and carefully cover the cake with the strips of puff pastry. Beat the egg and give it some shine painting the dough.
Preheat the oven 175oC and bake the cake about 45 minutes until it is brown noticing that the base is cooked (here is where the crystal container works perfectly so you can see through it!).

I took it together with the Roscón de Reyes to our family lunch and everybody loved it so much, especially the Swedes :)
