    Olha's Note:

    This is basically a wonderfully light and eggy sponge cake that absorbs the juices of fresh strawberries and the rather thin custard in its filling. Literally translated the name means “wet cake.” Although it is called “Norwegian,: it is popular throughout Scandinavia with custard, jam, and berries. Whipped cream is pile on top in a cloudlike drift. Scandinavian cooks sink a few beautiful fresh strawberries into the topping for a final garnish.

      This is one of my favorite recipes of Beatrice Ojakangas. My daughter is turning 26 tomorrow and every year, I have made this cake for her June birthday. Intially, the American children were not sure if they liked it because it is so different from the traditional 'sheet' cake but as they grow older, more they appreciate the cake.

      This is wonderful and as close as I've been able to get to the real thing! I've been looking for a recipe like this for a long time to serve to my husband who is Norwegian. The recipes I'd gotten in the past from his aunt in Norway just never translated quite right. Between the difference in ingredients available here and the conversion from metric to US units, my cake never turned out very good. So glad to have found this recipe!!
