The recipe I made today is for a traditional Danish cake. It was given to me by a really sweet friend named Signe who actually lives in Denmark. She and her husband Marty are such dear friends to Bryan and I, and I was THRILLED when she sent me this recipe. It makes me feel closer to them somehow, which is exactly what I love about baking: the love and feelings that go into it.
Here are some photos from the process, just to give you an idea of how it's made. The recipe follows below:
The fun part about this recipe is that I had to get out the food scale to make it! I tried looking up some conversion charts online, but the math was kind of driving me crazy, so I just decided I would weigh everything.
