A hint of rosewater adds sweet, floral aroma to this moist, dense semolina cake, packed with four types of coconut. Refrigerating overnight gives the semolina time to soak up the sweet coconut liquid, resulting in a softer, more tender crumb.

Delfia Cake / Delfiakake

A classic Norwegian Christmas cake recipe from matprat.no136_delfiakake

Delfia cake is a Norwegian classic that undoubtedly belong to Christmas! The name comes from a special coconut fat product called “Delfiafett”. The cake has been baked for Christmas in this country at least since the thirties. I have delfia cake recipes in cookbooks from that era.

Delfia cake does not exactly fall into the category slimming products. Even the most ardent cake eaters stuff themselves usually with just one piece at a time.

When I was a kid, we always had delfia cake at Christmas and I thought it was horrible and it is not exactly among my Christmas cake favourites today either. But it is a Christmas cake, so the recipe deserves a place here among Christmas recipes.
