Swedish Visiting Cake - Tuesdays with Dorie
Swedish Visiting Cake

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs picked Swedish Visiting Cake on page 197 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Nancy is awesome! I've been following her blog for a long time, and all her tweets. Her entries are filled with notes...you know that she made the cake and analyzed it for us. And of course Nancy picks a winner of a cake!

This is a simple and delightful cake. I love tea cakes, and this was super yummy.

You are supposed to make it a 10" cast iron skillet but I made mine in a 10" cake pan. Both still yummy! :)

your cake is gorgeous! perfect crumb, too. Mine was 'slightly damp,' not in the way Dorie intended, but now that I know how delicious it is I'll definitely make it again.

Love that lonely little almond sliver in the first picture. Honestly makes that picture for me. I'm a sucker for lonely little nuts. HA HA! Happy National Library Week to my favorite librarian!

Your cake is so pretty - perfect for tea, or breakfast, or midnight snack (if there's any left!)

Extra special thanks for baking along with me during National Library Week, and I appreciate the kind words, too.

I LOVED this cake - so simple but so tasty! I love the look of the almonds on yours, my almonds were naked but I like it with the skin on for the more rustic feel/look. =)
