Apple Cake with Syrup and Cider

S5 with Claus MeyerEPISODE 08


  • Wash the apples, peel and core them. Cut into smaller pieces. Dip them in the apple sauce, cider, vanilla and sugar and let them soak 10-15 minutes.
  • Finely chop the hazelnuts and mix them with butter and sugar until creamy.
  • Add the eggs and the egg whites and finally the flour. The dough should be rather thin and batter-like. Pour it into a greased cake pan. Let the apple pieces drip dry (through a cloth) and distribute them onto the dough.
  • Bake the apple cake at 180°C for 45-50 minutes. If the cake quickly browns on top, cover it with aluminum foil for the rest of the baking period. When finished, let cool.
  • Pour the liquid from the apples into a pot, boil and reduce it to a thick syrup. Pour the syrup over the cake. Top the cake with lightly whipped cream.
