Æblekage/Danish Apple Cake

Æblekage/Danish Apple Cake, is a very simple, no bake

home-made comfort dessert.  My husband Scott’s

Grandma started the tradition, of making it for birthdays.


This is a photo of my husband Scott’s Grandma, Grandpa, &

Father, “Edward J. Kellstrom”around the time they moved

to Modesto Ca. in the early 1920’s.  They came from the

island of Bornholm in Denmark, to Modesto Ca. where

Grandpa was a butcher for Anchor Meats.  We still have his

hand-made knife! April 23, this year would have been Scott’s

father’s 100th birthday Image result.  Although Ed died in 1983, we

celebrated in his honor.  Dinner was grilled t-bone steaks,

Amador Zinfandel wine, and baked potatoes with real butter.

After dinner, we played games of cribbage on Ed’s old board.

For dessert we enjoyed Æblekage/Danish Apple Cake, with

coffee of course.
