Norwegian Lingonberry Cake With Streusel Topping

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

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
