It is a simple sponge cake which is one of the classical cakes to make when you will have guest coming over. This is the base recipe but it is possible to make it more like a dessert cake with whip cream and fruits.
Double breaded white fish fillets will give a moist and tender fish, as well as a nice crispy surface. This way the fish keeps its taste and fits together with potatoes or mashed potatoes and a creamy sauce, a Swedish remoulade sauce for example.
This is a homemade recipe of the famous Swedish chocolate biskvi. It is a cookie with a chewy almond bottom, creamy chocolate butter filling and a chocolate shell.
