I saw a nice Dutch apple cake and was impressed by a gorgeous Nordic Heritage cake pan.  Finally, I got it from the US to Hong Kong without paying high shipping charges.  Very nice!  Thank you, Justin.  It is made in the USA,  sturdy and the conduction is very good.  I shared the majority with church friends and received wonderful appreciation.  One liked especially ‘no butter’ because she is aging. The sweetness was right.  Ha, I reduced  from 2 cups (450g) to 250g.

Grease every single crevice of your pan. Preheat the oven to 180C.
