Dorset Apple Cake / Eplekake fra Dorset

A traditional British recipe found on
313_dorset apple cake_post

In Dorset, the areas around the towns of Bridport and Beaminster have a soil which particularly suits apple growing. Cider is made from some of the apples grown in the county, and in the past was used as a necessary supplement to farm labourers’ wages.

There are many recipes for Dorset Apple Cake, as it seems to be one of those recipes which people find their own way with. This is based on the advice of a long-time Dorset resident, Marion Watson, who writes on “ ” website that “most traditional recipes are based on the rubbed-in method mixed with milk to give a rather scone-like mixture.”

This recipe comes from a page on, and it follows the method just described.

traditional badge americanWhen I found this book at a flea marked last month I almost dropped it right back in the cardboard box I found it in. The cover is so badly designed that I thought “Not bloody likely”. Luckily I leafed through it and found that it was crammed with decent recipes and good photos. I refuse to believe that the inside was designed by the same person who designed the cover – Ted 😉


Apple Turnovers / Epletriangler

An afternoon tea classic found on essentially-england.com524_Apple Turnovers_post

What are apple turnovers? At the most basic, they are sugar-covered puff pastry triangles, filled with stewed apples. But at their most wonderful, apple turnovers can be a lot more than that. Served hot from the oven, golden and crunchy with sugar, filled with spiced apples they make a memorable end to a meal.

Alternatively, you can serve them cold with your afternoon tea. In that case, a second filling of whipped cream may be added to the pastry triangles.

Whichever route you choose, apple turnovers need to be fresh to be memorable, the puff pastry at its most crunchy. There’s nothing appetising about soggy, flabby pastry. And there are many brands of good quality ready-made puff pastry in the shops if you don’t feel like making your own.

Puff Pastry Lengths With Apples – Butterdeiglengder Med Epler

A recipe from “Nye Mesterkokken” (The New Master Chef) published by Skandinavisk Presse AS in 1974 

butterdeiglengder med epler_post

Airy, light and crispy, these cakes are equally suitable for dessert as for coffee or tea. Sour, wafer-thin apple slices laid on puff lengths before baking almost melt into the dough. A little apple jelly over makes them shiny and nice.
