Swedish Visiting Cake


Here's to Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs (gotta love that blog title, I have some of those in my house, too!) for choosing this week's TWD recipe. It is a complete winner of a cake called Swedish Visiting Cake. This recipe couldn't be any easier to make. Perfect for that afternoon cup of tea or a Sunday brunch.

I had everything on hand to put this cake together which was awesomely easy. If I wouldn't have been in such a hurry, I would have thrown in some frozen berries. Definitely next time for sure! Dorie baked her's in a cast iron skillet, like you do cornbread. I unfortunately, do not own a 9" cast iron. So I baked mine in a 9" springform, which made it easy to come out. You have to give this one a try for sure. Check out Nancy's blog HERE for the recipe.

We give this 5 glasses of milk, for utter goodness!

Springform, skillet, cake pan... I think any of these work wonderfully. Looks beautiful!!! I agree - this has so many variations - berries are a perfect choice, coconut too... hm! I'll have to whip up another version - and try the springform this time!

Your cake is beautiful and I can see how it would win such high praise! I love your variation with the berries - I keep thinking "fruit" with this, but so far have baked 4 batches of the plain cake. Thanks for baking along with me this week.
