A recipe from “God Og Billig Hverdagsmat” (Nice And Inexpensive Food) published by N W Damm & Sønn in 1955

I grew up on desserts like these, Ready made desserts was scarse on the ground in the first 2 post-WWII dacades in Norway and what was available was both lacking in taste and quality. Besides making most of these is hardly more time consuming than opening some packages and mix and heat the content – Ted

A good filled cake is always a success, either serve it to the afternoon coffee, Sunday dessert or given away as a present . And what’s a birthday without cake! Of course it is both easy and convenient to order a cake at the bakery. But there is more festive – and much cheaper – to offer a delicious cake oneself is the master of. A good housewife takes pride in being able to serve good homemade cakes.

Wheat Dough 1948, One Dough – 4 Recipes

These recipes comes from a small book simply called “Kakeboka” (The cake book) published by J W Cappelen in 1955oversiktsbilde_08_post

This little book is crammed with both traditional Norwegian baking recipes and more exotic ones. Most Norwegians have a sweet tooth so this book was probably used a lot in the fifties. The war was over, the rations on sugar was lifted so a lot of homes were filled with the smell of fresh bakery. My home certainly was, my mum was a great cook and many of my childhood memories are connected with cakes and cookies made from recipes found in this book.

There  will be a lot of recipes from this  book in the weeks to come and I start with traditional Norwegian yeast baking.

In context:
Pumpkin refers to certain cultivars of squash, most commonly those of Cucurbita pepo, that are round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin and deep yellow to orange coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. Some exceptionally large cultivars of squash with similar appearance have also been derived from Cucurbita maxima. Specific cultivars of winter squash derived from other species, including C. argyrosperma, and C. moschata, are also sometimes called "pumpkin". In New Zealand and Australian English, the term "pumpkin" generally refers to the broader category called winter squash elsewhere.
