5. Norwegian Almond Cake

Light in texture, has a subtle almond flavour, and thanks to the corrugated ridges in the pan, the cake slices are essentially pre-portioned.

6. Gas Station Bratwurst

An “Americanised”  beloved Norwegian junk-food recipe using bratwurst and hoagie rolls! The combination of the hot brat right off the grill with the cold potato salad, sweet and tangy mustard along with the texture of the fried onions make this perfect snack food.

7. Julekake Bread

Better than a brioche and firmer and more substantial but not as rich. More a bread than a cake, unlike it’s cousin the panettone. You will immediately love this recipe.
