  • Norwegian Julekake

    Norwegian Julekake (Christmas Bread)

    I took my kids to the local Scandinavian bakery the other day for an after-school treat. As we peeked in–making sure we weren’t exceeding the number of customers allowed into the shop at a time due to the pandemic–I thought…

  • Lauren's Kringle

    Lauren’s Family Kringle (guest post)

    Growing up in North Dakota, Lauren enjoyed many Scandinavian goodies. One of her family favorites was kringle--a buttery, crispy, and delicious pastry. She was generous enough to share the recipe here!

  • Almond Cake with Lingonberries

    Lingonberry-Studded Almond Cake (Gluten Free)

    If you had asked me in my youth to define Norwegian food, I would have listed off a number of almond-flavored desserts: towering kransekake wreath cakes served at weddings, layered birthday cakes draped in a sheet of marzipan, buttery fyrstekake…

  • Cardamom Buns

    Norwegian Cardamom Buns (Boller)

    It smelled like the neighborhood Scandinavian bakery in my home the other day, with the aromas of freshly baked Norwegian cardamom buns and hot coffee brewed as strong and dark as the Nordic night. Boller—buttery, cardamom-scented buns —are just right…
