As promised on the Scandinavian forum I am going to post some recipes I have in old Swedish cookbooks. This comes from "Husmoderns Nya Kokbok" (The Housewife's New Cookbook) and was published in 1947. The measurements are sometimes hard to translate and they hardly ever give the cookingtime. All of that is estimated. It's also written in old-fashioned Swedish. Fun to browse through!
