Another great cake to have with a cup of coffee or tea. Lingonberries are easy to find in Los Angeles, they sell them at IKEA and at most supermarkets. If you can't find them, you can use raspberry preserves. From

Yum! Lingonberries taste somewhat tart to me, so the sweetness of the topping was the perfect complement. I would classify this recipe more as a bar cookie. The base is pressed into the pan, much like a shortbread crust. It's a great recipe and we loved it. Thank you! Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9

Excellent. I love the flavor of the cardamom in the batter and it was perfectly paired with the lingonberry preserves. The texture of the cake was a bit different (in a good way!) and I think it would also be good with a cinnamon streusel topping. It was quite easy to throw together and can be a "go to" favorite when company drops by unexpectedly. It says to eat it when cool, but we gave it maybe five minutes in the pan and ate it warm. Yum!

Loved it. I'm not much of a baker, so hit panic mode when ready to spread the 'batter' in the pan. It didn't seem to be a batter to me - it was more of a crumbly mixture. But it turned out great. My grandson had some friends over at the time and they tried it and loved it. In fact, when they got home, they called to get the recipe. Thanks Pesto lover for a nice keeper. Made for ZWT9.
