Swedish Almond Coffeecake is a scrumptious pastry made with lightly sweet yeasted bread and filled with luscious almond filling. This is a eggfree recipe.
I am starting a brand new week of blogging today. This week I am combining Blogging marathon and Bake-a-thon events. I didn’t realize what I was getting into when I signed up for both of them. Last week was literally a circus trying to cook, click and post (AND there was Bread Bakers too). Today I have an absolutely delicious Swedish Almond Coffeecake recipe that is very scrumptious and addictive.My theme for this week’s blogging marathon is ‘Cook by Capital’. Theme sounds simple enough, but the challenge that Valli gave us made it slightly challenging. So first we pick a capital – so I picked Stockholm which is in Sweden. For the next 2 days I have pick 2 more capitals that start with the letter S and cook from the respective countries. You will have to wait and see what other countries I picked for the next couple of days.I love baked treats from Sweden and I have quite a few that I want to bake. Swedish cinnamon rolls are on the top of that list – hopefully I will get to bake them soon enough. I also want to try my hand at making Princess cake which is a very elaborate Swedish pastry.
But for today I ended making this Swedish Almond Coffeecake – recipe courtesy from my favorite King Arthur flour site. Swedish almond coffee bread/ cake is a Christmas tradition in Sweden. It is traditionally it is either braided or made in a wreath form. Cardamom flavored sweet yeast dough is filled with creamy almond filling and then shaped and baked to make this scrumptious Coffeecake.This version of the coffee cake has an interesting shape and is quite a show stopper. Shape of my bread didn’t turn out as impressive as the original version, but it tasted absolutely amazing. The almond filling tasted like badam halwa and I loved it. It tasted great warm and the leftovers also were good warmed lightly in microwave.Here’s another delicious Swedish bake traditionally made for the holidays – Swedish Cardamom Bread.Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 95.
