Nijole’s (Lithuanian) Apple Cake and Recipe
I stayed with a an amazing host family while I was in Kaunas, Lithuania and Nijole was a fantastic cook. One of her favorite things was the little garden plot the family owned a little outside of the city. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see it, but it sounded lovely.
While we were there, Nijole served us all manner of apple products that she had made from the apples in her garden. In fact, she had at least three apple trees, planted and named after her three children. The apples that we were enjoying came from her first daughter, Victoria’s tree. They were delicious as cider, cake, jam, cheese, baked, and especially in this apple cake. Delicious!
Nijole served this cake to us during breakfast, and it sure was good with a cup of coffee. I’ve decided to try and replicate her apple cake here.
This quick and easy apple cake is the perfect fall dessert or coffee cake.
- 6 apples, peeled
- 6 eggs

This is Nijole and me. We aren’t going to eat the cake here, instead we’re waiting on the number one Lithuanian Snack Food, Fried Bread! We had such a great time! I can’t wait to see her again!
