Butterscotch Cream Dessert Cake / Dessertkake med Karamellkrem

This book has a lot of great illustration in down toned colours that really caught my attention. I have not tried to brighten up the colours, just given them a little more depth as they probably would have lost some over the last close to 75 years – Ted

Karlsbad Cake / Karlsbadkake

A recipe from “The Best of International Cooking”
published by Hamlyn in 1984

000_recipe_eng000_recipe_nor

In context:
Two centuries ago, when the United States was putting together a government of the people, European aristocrats, in their gilded world, were flocking to the “pearl” of the international spas at Carlsbad and discovering a new pastry phenomenon The Original Carlsbad Oblaten. It quickly became the favorite treat of continental high society.

000_Carlsbad OblatenThe wafer’s delicate crispness and subtle almond flavor proved to be a taste sensation in itself and a flavor complement to ice cream, fruit, coffee, tea, or milk. Its savor found favor as an elegant counterpoint to champagne, wine or liqueurs.

The wafers themselves are a compliment to their birthplace. Each one bears a relief design of the famous Carlsbad geyser, discovered in 1349 by no less a personage than Roman Emperor and Bohemian (Czech) King, Charles IV. The town was named in his honor; Carlsbad translates to “Carl’s Bath”.

For 200 years The Original Carlsbad Oblaten recipe has been a jealously guarded secret, held closely by one family in each generation.

The ingredients are all natural and all the same as when the Carlsbad Oblaten was first perfected. Two thin wafer rounds, exactly 17.5 centimeters across, fused and filled with a delicate confection of pounded almonds, unsalted butter, powdered sugar, and natural flavorings. No preservatives are used or needed.

The Original Carlsbad Oblaten remains a dessert delicacy whose flavor is as singular and distinctive as its history.

Queen Of Sheba Cake / Dronningen Av Saba Kake

A juicy and rich chocolate cake found on allers.no 181_dronningen av saba kake_post

Most accounts of the Queen of Sheba’s visit to King Solomon speak of their interaction as strictly platonic – a matter of state and trade agreements, nothing about seduction. It’s hard to see how that’s possible if this rich, dense, chocolate cake named in her honour was amongst the gifts she brought to the King. It remains a mystery how this cake is actually connected to its namesake, but it’s so delicious you too would give the Queen “whatsoever she desired” (1 Kings 10:13) once you had a bite.

Delfia Cake / Delfiakake

A classic Norwegian Christmas cake recipe from matprat.no136_delfiakake

Delfia cake is a Norwegian classic that undoubtedly belong to Christmas! The name comes from a special coconut fat product called “Delfiafett”. The cake has been baked for Christmas in this country at least since the thirties. I have delfia cake recipes in cookbooks from that era.

Delfia cake does not exactly fall into the category slimming products. Even the most ardent cake eaters stuff themselves usually with just one piece at a time.

When I was a kid, we always had delfia cake at Christmas and I thought it was horrible and it is not exactly among my Christmas cake favourites today either. But it is a Christmas cake, so the recipe deserves a place here among Christmas recipes.
