An old-Fashioned Norwegian cake recipe found on  norsktradisjonsmat.no
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.

Norwegian Christmas Cake / julekake

A classic cake recipe foubd in “Mat for Alle” (Food for Everyone)
Published by Tiden Norske Forlag in 1985

Norwegian Christmas Cake / julekake

This type of Norwegian Christmas cake is a strange phenomenon, as we really bake it all year long. It is largely for sale in the stores all year too. And we call it Christmas cake whenever we eat it. It is mostly served either with just butter, or with butter and brown cheese. The name is so incorporated in people my age’s everyday speech that I do not think we really remember that the name really has to do with Christmas.
