Tuesdays with Dorie: Swedish Visiting Cake

Based on the reviews I got this cake was a total win. I took it downtown to WEVL on Saturday and I didn't actually eat any myself but everyone seemed to enjoy it. It was so super easy to make and I didn't have to drag out the KitchenAid or even the hand-mixer, which made it that much better. I didn't bake mine in an iron skillet because my skillet needed to be cleaned and I didn't have time to clean it. Instead I used a buttered cake pan and it came out beautifully. I might be making another this week just so I can taste it for myself. Thanks to Nancy of The Dogs Eat the Crumbs for this week's selection!

That looks SO good! I'm a fan of the almond! I'm going to have to break down and get Dorie's book.

Yipeee for Swedish cake..I loved it. The only thing I have had Swedish is the candy Swedish fish! Your cake looks so good!

Your cake looks great, and I really think you should make another one, as it was delicious! I didn't use my cast-iron pan either, but I will next time, as I think it will make the crust even nicer.

Looks like we both shared our cake, but at least I got to taste the tiniest sliver of cake ever. This was really yummy!

Your cake looks so tasty, and I just LOVE the plate that you have it on in your pictures! (or is that fabric? I can't tell but the pink and white pattern is adorable!) I'm glad you enjoyed this cake!

Cake pan-maker here too. Came out great - just like yours! It's definitely a make-again cake, it was so simple - plus the almond factor (my favorite)! Nicely done!

Oh, I do hope you get to taste this one (soon); it's so simple and good. Yours turned out so pretty and it was very sweet (!) of you to share. Thanks for baking along with me this week.

It was surprisingly easy and even more delicious than I had anticipated. A keeper, for sure.
