I admit that when I think of Scandinavia, the first thing that pops into my mind is furniture.
All that blond wood. All those sleek designs. The timelessness of it all.
This cake has similar characteristics. It’s covered in classic white. It has no superfluous flourishes that get in the way. And it’s satisfying in a way that you’ll never tire of.
“Scandinavian Gold Cake” is from the new paperback edition of “The King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion”
The sizable book contains more than 350 recipes that span everything from breakfast treats to fried doughs to crackers to Viennoiserie.
