Norwegian Buttermilk Cake / Surmelkskake

A delicious cake baked in a roasting pan. Around 1900, several changes occurred which made cakes and different desserts more common on the menu of most Norwegian people because the cast iron stove now made it possible to bake things in the oven. In addition, access to sugar had become better in the  early1900s.

This recipe was submitted by Randi Fossland to Norway’s Associated Country Women’s recipe relay in 2012.

A classic Christmas cookie recipe found on mills.no
Norwegian Coconut Wreaths/ Kokoskranser

Coconut wreaths taste like the name suggests of coconut. They are shaped like wreaths, and traditionally also have some grooves on the surface. To achieve this the dough should be run through a meat grinder with a star nozzle or a piping bag with a star opening . If you don’t have neither grinder nor piping bag, the dough can be rolled out to sausages with a thickness of your finger and then tie them together to wreaths. 1 serving in this recipe gives about. 40 cookies.
