A wonderful "bread", that is served with coffee, here in Norway. It only contains 1/2 c sugar, but the "secret" ingredient is cardamom...Mmmmmm..so delicious. Try a slice with butter on it! You'll love it, too! (This is NOT a sandwich bread, though lots of people eat it with butter and jam!! You decide!)

This really brought back memories! When I was a little girl we lived for a year in Norway in a small town outside Oslo, and I would have this every morning for breakfast with a heavy layer of sweet butter. Sometimes as a treat my mother would cut this up into cubes, sprinkle sugar on it and then mix it with cottage cheese. I've never eaten that anywhere else except in Norway! I made using bread flour and it turned out beautifully and wonderfully nostalgic! Thanks so much for posting this.
