It’s almost the season of Ho Ho Ho and cozying up by the fire. So I thought I would share with you the Swedish Pepparkakor Spice Cake. A great cake when you want spice but not a lot of sweet. I dusted mine with powder sugar but a side of homemade whip cream would be perfect too. Celebrate the season with a big cup of coffee and a slice of cake after a long workday. I’m counting the minutes to that moment today.
