Scandinavian Gold Cake

                      Oops, didn’t have a picture of the cake so here’s an enticing coffee cake!

Today, I’m getting a jump on my baking for next week. One of my favorite recipes is the Sandinavian Gold Cake taken from the James Beard’s Amerian Cookery Book. And being me, I don’t follow the recipe exactly. This cake is so rich it doesn’t need any icing and is great with coffee. I add, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to make it a spice cake. I also substitute vanilla extract for the almond because of allergies.


1 cup soft butter

1 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour

5 eggs

1 1/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 salt (I leave this out)

1/2 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract (I use a teaspoon of either vanilla or rum extract)

If spicing it up, here is where I add the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. I use 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ginger and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.


Preheat oven to 325-degrees

Combine butter and flour in bowl and mix on low speed for 5 minutes, until mixture is meal like and well blended. Next, again on low speed add the eggs one at a time. Sift the sugar, baking powder, and salt together, gradually adding them to the above mixture, add the flavoring (still blending on low speed).


Turn into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake for one (1) hour or until the cake springs back when touched lightly in the center. Turn out on  a rack to cool.


This cake as I said before is so rich, no icing is required or recommended. Take a paper doily and place over the top and sprinkle with confectionary sugar (I sometimes combine the powdered sugar with cinnamon here)


Enjoy your holiday and be safe! For me the holidays are about family and most important the meaning of Christmas!

  113. Oh, Marian, this sounds perfect for taking to my children’s house Christmas morning – my hubby and I go to watch grandchildren open presents and I like to take something warm and wonderful to eat while we watch…and this is perfect!! Thanks so much for sharing:)

  114. I know, Gail. I love all the special foods for the holidays. My grandmother used to make something close to this recipe ;but it was lost, so when I found this, yummy for the taste and the memories.

  115. Sounds yummy. Might have to try this, right after I make Joni’s Eggnog Pound Cake and this delicious sounding apple cake. LOL. Think I’m going to need to space these out a bit or my jeans will be complaining!

    Thanks for sharing.
