Dutch Farmhouse Cake
/ 1 kg of sour apples
like Granny Smiths.
/ 170 g Breadcrumbs
/ 50 g Butter
/ 100 g sugar
/ 100 g raisins
pinch of ground
Preheat the oven to 180 C / 375 F / Gas 4. Grease your baking tin. I always line the bottom with parchment.
Peel and cube the apples and in a pan or microwave, cook the apples until a puree. use a potato masher to puree them It's easier!
Separate the 3 eggs, and in one bowl, whisk the eggs whites to stiff peaks and set aside. With the yolks, lightly beat.
In a large bowl, add the breadcrumbs, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, sugar, apple puree, butter and combine well.
Add the apple puree and mix again. then add the egg yolks, mix it all together very well.
Finally, gently fold in the whisked egg whites and transfer the mixture to your baking pan. Even the surface and sprinkle brown sugar all over.
Bake for approximately 1 hour. Mine took 1 hour and 5 minutes. Test with a toothpick after 1 hour, and also the top should be a nice golden brown like in the photos!
Allow to cool in the tin then serve with some chilled custard sauce or whipped cream. Delicious! oh, and of course a cup of Dutch Coffee!
