The spices make this cake taste so good! I used an 8" pan and it cooked in 48 minutes in my oven. I frosted it with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting Jackie's Snickerdoodle Cake With Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting by Linda's Busy Kitchen and my DH had two pieces! I stopped at one but I could easily have had another! Delicious.
I just got horse-shaped cake pans from Ikea, so I thought I'd break them in with a Swedish cake recipe. This one was great! It baked up well, though faster than the times listed, and was really delicious. I'm in a wheat-free household, so I used barley flour, a touch of cornstarch and a touch of mochiko instead of wheat flour, and lingonberry jam instead of cranberry because that's "More Swedish." Even with the barley, which notoriously turns my baking dry, it turned out really well.
I loved this cake. I was concerned it would be too sweet, but it was just right. I also expected the cinnamon to be the dominant flavour, but it was perfectly offset by the cardamom. I couldn't find cranberry jam, so used cranberry sauce. I consider it a suitable substitute - sweet with a jam-like texture. The cake was cooked after 45 minutes. I used a 9" (24cm) diameter cake pan, but next time I will choose something smaller, so that the cake has greater depth. Thank you for recommending and posting this cake Chef Dudo.
