This recipe is from Sweden
The popular Swedish sandwich cake is more like a big sandwich than a cake. It is made from toast bread with various fillings in between the layers. It is nicely decorated to reflect the fillings. The most popular version is made with shrimps and fish. If you are not fond of seafood, this homemade sandwich cake with ham and chicken is a perfect choice instead.
This is not a dessert or breakfast pancake, this is a main dish that is traditionally served with lingonberry jam (a non-sweet jam most probably to be found in a Scandinavian shop or at IKEA).
The Swedes are crazy about chocolate cake that is sticky in the middle (kladdkaka). This is a basic one that is common to do. To change it a bit you can add some chocolate both inside the cake, and on top of it.
