TWD - Swedish Visiting Cake


Today's post will be short and sweet. For this week's Tuesday with Dorie, our host, Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs, chose Dorie's Swedish Visiting Cake.

What's not to like - it is a sweet vanilla plain cake with almonds on top and a crispy bottom obtained by baking in a skillet.

It is delish served warm with icecream.



See the blogroll for other interpretations of this cake, or Nancy's site for the recipe.

Hmmm...I haven't tried it with ice cream yet! Maybe I'll do that with the leftovers:) I loved this cake.

A short and sweet post is appropriate for this cake! I loved it plain and I'm sure it's even better with ice cream.

Your cake looks wonderful! I should really think ahead because ice cream would have been great with the cake!
I love your serving dish too - it's soo groovy! (That's the word that came to mind when I saw the dish!) =)

You have a good point, whats not to love? It looks delicious.

I feel a little ripped off as I never encountered this when I was living in Sweden. Perhaps I didn't have enough visitors. Or do enough visiting.

Ice cream makes everything better.

Elizabeth and Jared said...

This does look really yum! and who'd have thought it was baked in a skillet!

Kayte said...

Ice cream, ice cream...not once did anyone mention ice cream with this cake, until now. Maybe I should make another so some ice cream could be given its rightful place. Yours looks perfect.

Ivy said...

What a lovely cake. Sometimes, the most plain and straight-forward things are the best!

Nancy/n.o.e said...

Ice cream? That's brilliant! Love your cake, and I'm going to take notes from your short and sweet post. Thanks for baking along with me this week.
