This week, Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs selected Swedish Visiting Cake for her TWD week. I'll be honest here, I saw this while flipping through recipes for my TWD pick, and thought how simple and non exciting it was, reminded me of a coffee cake. BUT after reading the P&Qs of it, I was very wrong! It was well received by other TWDers and being such a simple recipe (ingredients you probably already have!) how could I say no?
So for my cake I used orange zest, fresh from our tree, and upped the vanilla extract leaving out the almond extract. I baked it in my 9" Pampered Chef Deep Dish Pie Stoneware (that I found NEW at the swap meet for $3!).
It needed a longer bake time than suggested since my dish is a thick ceramic. Once it was done, it reminded me of a sugar cookie! Mr. commented on liking the crust, I loved the chewiness of the cake as well as the flavor. We all loved this so much it was gone fast! The orange was wonderful in it. I considered making another just so we can have another piece. This goes my Fave Dorie list!
Head over to Nancy's blog where you can get the recipe yourself, and see how wonderful this cake is!
