Kanel Snegle (Cinnamon Rolls)
The smell of cinnamon and cardamom will fill your house when you warm these in your oven. Growing up, my mom would sometimes bake them straight from the freezer to have with coffee in the afternoon, but we would also have them from the bakery as dessert after breakfast, on special occasions. Now my own family loves it when I make these, and they have become a traditional part of Christmas Day brunch the years we don’t go to Denmark for the holidays. They are deliciously gooey and just sweet enough with a simple frosting to top it off.
Herregårdskage (Manor Cake) 9″x 9″, $30
This cake to me is so Danish, so homey and so filled with hygge. One bite and I feel transported back to my childhood. It is deliciously moist inside, with a crunchy coconut meringue topping. Not too sweet, just sweet enough.
The name translated to English is misleading as I learned that Manor Cake is actually a fruit cake. But since “herregård” is manor in English, Manor Cake is the direct translation of the Danish name. How the cake got its name is a bit of a mystery to me. Perhaps it’s because there is something stately over its appearance. Or maybe it was a favorite of the Danish nobility. It’s anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure, this is a favorite cake of mine.
