TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake

Remember the fantastic twisted coffee cake I blogged a little bit ago? I went on and on about a delicious almond butter cake that I loved from the German bakery. Of course, anything that remotely resembles it I have to try.

When Nancy from The Dogs Eat The Crumbs chose Swedish Visiting Cake for this week's TWD I was very excited. The picture in the book looks so similar to the almond cake I love. I knew that I would not be passing this week up!




A great plus for this recipe is that it is super simple to assemble and it uses basic ingredients. I believe Dorie said in the introduction to this recipe that it is said that you can make this cake as you see visitors coming down the road and it will be ready by the time they arrive. Okay, so it isn't that quick, but it is quite speedy!

I absolutely LOVED this cake. It was homey, but in a good way. A basic cake with good flavor. It wasn't exactly like my beloved almond cake, but it was close! It was gone quickly and I will definately be making it again and again!

Thanks to Nancy for hosting this week. Make sure to head over to her blog for the recipe.

This is one I probably will eventually try (after your Twisted Almond Cake!) basically because I am a FREAK about almond anything! ;)

Loved this one, too. I think it would be great with just about any fruit on top, too, so it's healthy, right. ;)

there is something so appealing to me about simple desserts like this, without all the fuss and chocolate, not that there is anything wrong with chocolate

I've never had that almond cake you raved about but now I really can't stop thinking about it. I need to just give in and make this myself.
