Swedish Visiting Cake

The Swedish Visiting Cake was another stellar recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours.




The main flavors are almond and lemon. This was a super easy, very quick one-bowl recipe that resulted in a wonderfully delicious cake.  I can definitely see myself baking this cake over and over again.  You can find the recipe here on Dorie’s blog.

    These recipes all look so great. I cant wait to try the Heath Bar Cookies. Dont you not feel bad eating all this sugar?! I always get down on myself when I make desserts and I am not having company, LOL. I have sugar-craver’s guilt. –jf
