    This is clearly one for Elizabeth to reply to (unless of course there is a particular Norwegian variant that I am unaware of ...)

      3 eggs
      2 dl sugar
      2 1/2 dl wheat flour
      1 topped teaspoon vanilla sugar
      1 topped teaspoon baking powder
      Appple boats (peeled)
      Sugar and cinnamon for the topping

      Whip the eggs and sugar into 'eggedosis'.
      Melt some butter (measured by feel, but not more than 120-130 grams)
      and mix it in.
      All of the dry ingrediences are mixed in.
      (Some also use a cup of milk)
      Pour the stuff in an oiled form, 24 cm across.
      Put the apple boats on top and then end with sugar
      and cinnamon on top of that.

      The form is placed in 175 degrees for 40 minutes.

      Out of this, you should have 16 good and juicy pieces of cake.

        Well, my dear, Big S's looks good. You have to narrow down the parameters for something from me... apple cake for coffee? Apple cake with icing? Apple upside down cake? Grated apple? Applesauce? Spiced apple? Apples wrapped around cake? Tart apple? Sweet apple? Gooey cake? Firmer cake? I only have 200+cookbooks to help!

        Um..I'm figuring that "apple boats' are apple wedges??

          Oh yes, that's totally correct. But you know, I can't see them as other than boats, as they remind me of old egyptian papyrus vessels

            such a cute way of describing them!!

            Jan-- I actually DO have a good recipe from the Goddess of Southern Cooking, Paula Deen--but I want to make sure my metric conversions are right, so I'm going to make it tomorrow..(oh, the sacrifices, the sacrifices....) and will give it you then...

              Okay-- I just made this and it's yummy...

              Forgive my crazy measuring..it's been a LONG time since I baked "metric-ly" ...

              Recipe Name: Jan-Olav's Apple Cake in Metric

              Ingredients:
              400 grams sugar (4.7 dL)
              3 eggs
              3.5 dl vegetable oil
              60 ml orange juice (about one orange)
              385 grams flour (7 dl)
              5 ml baking soda
              1.25 ml salt
              15 ml cinnamon
              15 ml vanilla extract
              400 grams apples, chopped (about 5 small apples) (7.5 dl to 1 liter)
              90 grams shredded coconut (2.5 dl)
              100 grams pecans or walnuts, chopped (2.5 dl)

              Sauce:
              120 grams butter (1.2 dl)
              200 grams sugar (2.2 dL)
              1.20 dl buttermilk (or kefir?)
              2.5 ml baking soda

              Instructions:
              -Preheat oven to 160° C.
              -Grease or lightly oil a 20 x 30 x 5 pan (or a bundt or tube pan).
              -Mix well together: sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
              -Mix in lightly the apples, coconut and nuts.
              - Pour into pan- batter is very sticky and thick.. Spread evenly in pan.
              -Bake for one hour.

              -About 5 minutes before cake is done, make the sauce.
              -Melt butter in a sauce pan.
              -Add sugar, buttermilk and baking soda. Bring to a boil. Let boil for one minute, stirring constantly.

              -Remove cake from oven. Immediately pour sauce over cake. Let stand one hour for sauce to absorb into cake.

              -If you used a bundt or tube cake pan, after one hour, you can invert the cake onto a wire rack to finish cooling.





              Just so you know... a cup of sugar measures about 235 ml in a liquid measuring device.
              if you don't want the coconut, just don't add it....ditto for the nuts.

              The basic cake is more like a glue holding the apple pieces..so I don't see why you couldn't add more apples...
              The sauce really makes the cake...don't omit it!

              It can be baked in a bundt pan...and dusted with powedered sugar.

              It's really moist....wil be better the next day, I bet!!..Really good with a scoop of ice cream on top....
