alFor Kitchen Gadget Tuesday… I’m cheating a bit with a reproduction pan but a traditional recipe. I think it’s legal though because what I’m focusing on is the actual recipe itself. Nothing says Christmas like a little taste of Scandinavia, especially here in Jamestown with our large Swedish Heritage.
Growing up, I didn’t have the “special” pan we would just bake it in a 8×8. The pan though makes it dazzle. I got mind at The Viking Trader. I’m not sure if Gale has anymore in stock. This month is Gale’s last month after 36 years in business. You can always stop by and see if she has anymore in stock. If not you can always look online.
The cake itself is moist and delicious. My husband and I now give it out as gifts at Christmas. SO MUCH BETTER THAN A FRUIT CAKE. Plus you can freeze the cakes as well. Let’s get down to business.
Traditional Scandinavian Almond Cake (my mouth is kind of watering right now!)
PS… You can always have it with a glass of Glogg… I shared it with my studio readers in 2006 but I’ll let you have a peak.
