Sandwich-cake (Smørgåstårta)


For Norwegian text, press HERE

This is a Swedish classic, absolutely yummy and eye-catching! The Swedes use this for special occasions. It may well be made a day in advance, and only your imagination limits what to fill it with and how to decorate it.  (Tuna / crab / salmon. Vegetarian. Sun-dried tomatoes, olives and serrano ham, just to make a few suggestions).

On my first attempt I have chosen paté and ham in the filling, and oh my gawd was it good! This recipe is more than enough for 4 people, and you can easily add up the recipe if you need a bigger Sandwichcake. You can make it round, or any shape you want. For big parties, use a baking tray or a big tray or plate.

With my birthday coming up next month, I hope someone will make this for me!

Sir Nerdalot – the above is a (not so) subtle hint! Get it? Got it? Good!

    • It’s really good! Great for events where people expect to be fed, as this is made ahead of time. Im not great at decorating (too clumpsy I guess), but google Smørgåstårta and look through the pictures for decorating tips 🙂
