Omenakakku – Mini Finnish Apple Cakes

This Finnish version of apple cake doesn’t seem to be too different from a standard cake, maybe apart from the sour cream, but it certainly is a delicious treat and this particular recipe is now next to my Pulla recipe for sweet treat recipes to have on hand.

Overall, this isn’t an overly sweet dessert and the texture is soft, moist and dense without being too heavy.

1 egg, beaten
