Norwegian Apple Cake (Eplekake)

Best served with a nice hot cup of coffee, this delicious and easy apple cake is the perfect cake for the holiday season! In spirit of my Scandinavian Midwest background I thought it would be super fun to make a cake I had never made before… and it turned out amazing! A mix between an apple cake and a coffee cake you’ll be getting a taste of comfort in every bite. I’ll definitely be making this recipe a new favorite!
