This Scandinavian dish is very popular in Sweden. It is often served in the summer but also for big celebrations when you have many guests. It is made of white toast bread in layers with different creamy fillings in between. The fun part is to choose the ingredients and decorate the cake differently every time.
This cake is perfect if you are not a sweet tooth but still like desserts. The bottom is foft and the topping is with cream but have a coffee taste. To make it different it is possible to sprinkle som dark chocolate on top of the cake.
This is a homemade European spongecake topped with whipped cream and sweet strawberries. To make the bottom high and fluffy it's important to mix the eggs and sugar a few minutes with an electrical mixer, instead of adding more baking soda as for the American sponge cakes. You can add chocolate on the sides of the cake to give a more luxury touch.
