swedish visiting cake

This cake fit so seamlessly into my weekend that I hardly know what to say about it. I mixed it up and baked it early Friday evening, and I grabbed a bite here and another there throughout the weekend until there was nothing left.

With the ingredients stirred by hand, and the light lemony almond flavor, it was easy to bake and just as easy to eat.

Nancy chose this for Tuesdays with Dorie, and she has the recipe posted. I doubled the salt (of course).

  1. You cake looks lovely. Wasn’t it so easy?

  2. This post was really hard for me to write too! I couldn’t come up with anything to say besides “simple and delicious!”

  3. I’m glad you got to “visit” with your cake all weekend – a nibble here and there. It WAS good wasn’t it? One of those lazy cakes to have on hand for those lazy weekends – it looks scrumptious!

  4. What a great recipe. Thanks for sharing, Bridget!

  5. Yipeee for Swedish cake..I loved it. The only thing I have had Swedish is the candy Swedish fish! Your cake looks so good!

  6. And that is why I shipped mine off with the fiance. Cakes that are this easy to nibble on should be illegal. Or calorie-free.

  7. Doh! I never learn. I should have doubled the salt too. Why didn’t you remind me oh Queen of Salt?? You always remind me! I did double the lemon zest though. Yum. Lemon-y! I guessss I’ll just have to bake it again. Rough life, eh?

  8. Great looking cake! I loved the taste and ease of this one.

  9. I love a simple, delicious cake – but I think nibbling on it by myself in the span of two days would be dangerous, heh heh 🙂

    Manggy – I know, it was! Fortunately, I only made a half recipe. And I did give Dave one bite shortly after it came out of the oven. Because that one bite makes a difference.

  11. next time i’ll double the salt too. great idea!

  12. I love the casual serving method. Something beautifully rustic about it, yet so refined. Also, I’m a sucker for any lemon/almond flavor and the texture fo the cake just looks so good!

  13. This looks SO good. I will definitely not make it, though, because I am quite sure I’d have no self control.

  14. This looks delicate and simple. How wonderful.

  15. Increasing the salt is always a good plan; increasing the waistline isn’t, so you were smart to halve the recipe. Your cake looks beautiful, that little temptress! Thanks for baking along with me this week.

  16. This cake was way too easy to be soooo good. Yours looks just perfect!!

  17. Your cake looks so perfect and inviting cut up into those little tempting pieces! We enjoyed it, too.

  18. I love a simple, delicious cake – but I think nibbling on it by myself in the span of two days would be dangerous, heh heh 🙂

  19. So simple, rustic, and yummy looking 🙂
