TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake


C'mon. I can not be the *only* TWD baker that made lots of Swedish chef noises while baking this cake. I know someone else did.

And yes, I've been a blog-slacker. I'm sorry. Passover just kicked my butt and I didn't really want to bake or cook anything for a while. Now, I'm slowly getting back into it. Nancy, of The Dog Eats the Crumbs, picked this cake and it's winner! So simple to make, yet elegant enough to use at anytime. I loved the lemon and almond flavor, and the crisp edges from the melted butter. Alex took the cake to work, otherwise it was too tempting to keep around the house.

I wonder if they actually make this in Sweden? I hope they do. It's delicious!

Hmm, I didn't make any Swedish noises, but it might make dishes more fun! Your cake looks great, and it was probably a good idea to get it out of the house. Mine is calling me now:)

You crack me up with the Swedish chef noises! From what I've been gathering as I read posts, they really do make this cake in Sweden - yum! Yours looks delicious, and you're right; it's one tempting cake. A little sliver here, a little sliver there...

Thanks for baking along with me this week.

I know what you mean about taking desserts to work. Better to get it out of the house. Sometimes I just have to throw it away! Cake looks delicious.
