Faroese apple cake

It is not so common with Faroese food in Norway, but this apple cake tastes fantastic. In this recipe, you can easily replace homemade bottoms and the caramel sauce with ready-made ones, if you have a bad time. Of course, it tastes best with homemade.

Meringue bottoms:

5 egg whites

1/4 teaspoon salt

300 g sugar

1 ts maisenna

1 tsp 5% vinegar

Set the oven at 110 degrees.

Beat egg whites and salt on low speed until frothy. When the foam starts to harden, add the sugar a little at a time as well as the maizena and vinegar. Whisk until you have a soft and shiny meringue and all the sugar is dissolved.

Find two baking trays and place on baking paper. The bottoms should be 24 cm in diameter, so place a plate of suitable size and draw after it. The surrounding edge can be a little higher than the rest of the bottom. Pour the meringue into a spray bag with a star-shaped tip. Spray the outer edge and work your way inwards.

Lower the heat to 100 degrees and place the bottoms in the oven. Roast for approx. 1.5 hours until the bottoms are crispy and dry. Turn off the oven and leave the bottoms in the oven until they have cooled, preferably overnight.


1 dl whipped cream

60 g melis

3 tablespoons dark syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan. Let it simmer without a lid until you get the desired consistency. It takes about 20 - 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. The caramel is finished when it has turned golden brown and it has a suitably thick consistency. Put the caramel sauce in a glass when it is done. Can be stored at room temperature for several weeks.


4 green apples

4.5 dl fresh creams

3 dl cream

1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

Whip the cream stiff. Peel the apples and cut them into small cubes. Gently stir everything together.

Place the first meringue base on a platter. Spread half of the filling over. Lay on the other bottom and spread the rest of the filling outwards. Sprinkle the caramel sauce over.

The cake can be as it is, or decorated with what you want, e.g. unsprayed rose petals, fresh berries el.
