Gosh, I must have done something really wrong because this cake came out quite damp and dense. It did raise well, though. I made it thinking it would go well with fresh strawberries. Sorry, ElaineAnn, but we didn't like it at all.
I love love love this recipe! I grew up with Finnish cooking and baking and this cake is perfect exactly as written! I have made this twice now, the first time was for an international potluck, everyone loved it, second time was for a scandinavian choir, and again, everyone loved it! I wouldnt change a thing! thank you ElaineAnn for sharing!
Made as directed and I got a fantastically gorgeous cake that is moist through and through. Thanks, ElaineAnn! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #46, November 2010.
