Retsept: Õunakook - Krista Ameljušenko -

Recipe: Apple cake - Krista Ameljushenko

I've loved to cook and prepare food (read to come up with recipes) for half of my life. Probably because my mother, as a big sister, took me behind the stove from a very early age. Today, I have a 5-year-old son diagnosed with celiac disease, and there is even more baking and experimenting as all recipes have to be adapted to suit him. I myself just love a healthy lifestyle, and spending time in the kitchen with my child is our way of spending quality time. Our family doesn't go to Mäki, we also make our own burgers from start to finish. This time I made a "sin-free" Christmas-inspired apple cake, using gluten-free flour and Nick's sugar substitute and flavoring drops. Almost all sweets can be made healthier and with fewer calories. What's even better, it's also gluten- and lactose-free.
Cake base:
Vanilla Cream:
  • 2.5dl of milk
  • 0.5dl of sugar substitute
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp vanilla stevia
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
Heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the cored (cubed) apples, Nick's 'use like sugar', cinnamon and vanilla stevia drops.
  2. In another bowl, put flour and baking powder and a little salt.
  3. Melt the butter.
  4. Add 2 eggs, milk and cooled butter to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.
  5. Add apple pieces to the mixture and mix lightly.
  6. Pour the mixture into a baking dish with a diameter of approx. 25 cm.
  7. Bake for about 40 minutes until the cake is dark brown on top.
Vanilla cream.
  1. Heat the milk in a small pot, do not let it boil.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks, sugar substitute, vanilla-flavored drops and cornstarch and a little salt.
  3. Slowly pour the warm milk into the egg mixture, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour the sauce back into the pot and heat until the sauce has thickened.
  5. Remove from stove.
Add cranberries for decoration and pour vanilla cream on the piece of cake.
Have a nice and easy holiday season!
