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.
