By the way, the word cake is kake in Norwegian, pronounced (ca) as in caviar and (ca) as in (caring. This is my very own method of teaching how to pronounce Norwegian words.
Keep stored in a lined plastic container in the freezer.
I love to sit by my computer and munch on a piece of Mor Monsen Cake with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
Here is the recipe.
(*Check the expiration date on your baking powder. When it is near the expiration date, buy a new one or you may end up with a very flat cake. Buy the smallest container and keep an eye on the date.)
Mix baking powder and flour before adding.
Sprinkle with almonds, currants, and sugar.
Swirl almonds and currants into the batter with a fork so it does not fall off when the cake is done and sprinkle with pearl sugar on top.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven at 350° F. for 30-35 minutes to light golden.
Cool slightly on a wire rack.
Cover cake with waxed paper and a cookie sheet and turn the pan upside down on the sheet.
Finish cooling on wire rack.
Keep this tasty Mor Monsen Cake in your freezer and you're always ready to serve a Norwegian dessert.
