Top Review by twissis

This is an easy-to-fix, lovely & flavorful tea cake that DH & I enjoyed w/coffee instead of tea for the tradition of Icelandic afternoon *Kaffi og Kaka* (Coffee & Cake). DH enjoyed his w/a generous amt of the spray variety whipped cream & I ate mine plain. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
