A classic cake recipe foubd in “Mat for Alle” (Food for Everyone) Published by Tiden Norske Forlag in 1985
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.
A cookie recipe found in “Cooky Jar Favourites” published by the Tested Recipe Institute in 1960
Peanut butter, raisins and oats should give these cookies the perfect chewiness. Just the thing with a glass of lemonade for the children of the Norwegian post-war baby boom which I was a part back in 1960 when this book was published. Little Ted was 7 back then.
