Comfort Foods For Dark Days
This is a Scandinavian (Swedish) dessert, which according to my book is called aeppelkaka med vaniljsaus (spelling?) which means apple pie with vanilla sauce.
It's very easy to make and tastes really great, plus you won't need to buy any expensive ingredients.
For the cake, you will need:
5 apples, medium to large size
lemon peel, rasped
2 tbsp sugar extra
Knead flour, 2 tbsp sugar and butter into soft dough and put into the refrigerator for about 25-30 minutes. In the meanwhile, peel the apples and cut into thin slices, place into a greased baking pan, layering with 4 tbsp sugar and lemon peel. Roll the dough out, cover the apples and bake the pie for about 25 min in a warm oven (+200*C).
While the pie is baking, make the sauce. You will need:
2 tsp corn starch
1 3/4c milk
1tbsp vanilla sugar
In a small cooking pan, whisk together the egg, sugar, corn starch and milk, and cook on low till nearly boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from fire and add vanilla sugar. Keep in the fridge and serve together with the pie. Enjoy!
