Norwegian Buttermilk Cake / Surmelkskake

A delicious cake baked in a roasting pan. Around 1900, several changes occurred which made cakes and different desserts more common on the menu of most Norwegian people because the cast iron stove now made it possible to bake things in the oven. In addition, access to sugar had become better in the  early1900s.

This recipe was submitted by Randi Fossland to Norway’s Associated Country Women’s recipe relay in 2012.
