Post text and recipe from ThorNews:
Fyrstekake is a very popular cake in the Nordic countries, and it has an almond and marzipan base. In Norway it is common to serve it as a dessert. It is available in supermarkets, but every Scandinavian would agree that nothing tastes like the homemade cake – preferably made by grandma.
New York Times once wrote this uplifting story about Fyrstekake: Midcentury Scandinavian food never had the second life that Scandinavian furniture did. And if you’d like to know why, imagine the opposite — a world in which we savour salted herring and forget about Saarinen tables. No! But if we were to bring back just one worthy dish, I’d vote for Fyrstekake, also known as Royal Cake.(…) Fyrstekake is something between a cake and a bar cookie. It’s so fragrant and chewy that it begs for an accompanying cup of tea.
