No-bake Danish Apple Cake
Anyway, this makes for a great dessert.
You will need:
1kg apples, peeled, cored and cut into small pices
150g bread crumbs (I wasn't sure how much it was, so I used 6 slices of bread; 4 white and 2 wholewheat. It was enough for the size cake you see in the picture, however it wasn't enough to fill the round baking pan as the original recipe suggested. You will need to remove the crust and cut bread into small cubes)
100g jam ( I used red berries jam, and it was more than 100g, in fact, I used nearly the whole jar)
1c whipping cream
First, you need to make apple compote. For this, cook apples together with some water and 75g sugar until the pieces become very soft, then mash them, add soaked gelatin. and let it dissolve. Let it cool completely
Whip the cream together with 2 tbsp sugar, very stiff. In a skillet over medium heat melt the butter, add the bread crumbs + 50g sugar, cook and stir until brown.
Next, assemble the cake. First a layer of crumbs, then apple compote, then jam, top with bread crumbs. Now spread whipped cream all over and refrigerate. You will have to eat it during the next 2-3 days, as the whipped cream tends to turn sour, even in the fridge.
