Ragnhilds apple cake

Our back yard is full of apples, and there are only so many apples you can eat before you grow sick of them.

And well I do not know how many apples I’ve eaten this last week, so I though I would turn them into something a bit more creative, than just a plain apple.


I found this recipe online, and I instantly fell for it due to its name, Ragnhild is an old Scandinavian name and it was the name of my very loving and wonderful grandmother. The very same person who is my inspiration in the kitchen, the woman who could make everything taste like it came from a Michelin star restaurant.

This recipe is in coffee cups, you know old quaint coffee cups, with a saucer. there is something special standing there baking with old porcelain made coffee cup, decorated with pink flowers. but if you don’t have a cupboard filled with vintage porcelain cups i’m happy to inform you that one coffee cup is about 1,5 dl / 0,65 cups

This cape is so easy to make, it only requires a handful of ingredients and its caramelized surface is a pure delight to enjoy during rainy fall days


1 egg

1 coffee cup sugar

1 coffee cup flour


50 grams/half stick/ 1/4 cup / melted butter

2 -3 apples

Sugar and cinnamon


Beat egg and sugar until it becomes white.Add the flour, melted butter and oil.

Mix until it becomes a smooth batter.

Butter a baking tin and add the batter in to the baking tin.

Peel and chop the apples, add them to the batter.

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the surface of the cake.

Bake for 30-40 minutes in 180 c

What do you make of your apples? Cakes, muffin, marmalade or just eat them like they are?img_5887
