Tuesdays With Dorie – Swedish Visiting Cake
Yes, I know today is Wednesday. I baked this cake last night and was too tired to post. I’m still at Target, but I switched work centers to in-stocks, so now I have a steady schedule – 5 days a week, rotating weekends, start at 6-6:30 am and leave at 1:30-2 pm. Still not full time (roughly 35 hrs, might as well be FT). Why is it that I can move on up in a company that hires almost anyone, yet can’t find a job even slightly related to my degree? Sigh. There are days I wake up and see myself still at Target 10 years from now because getting a job I enjoy is “too good to be true.”
Dorie’s Swedish Visiting Cake is very moist. I kept forgetting to buy almonds, so I went with coconut. I was a little unsure about the baking time bc Dorie did say it would be “slightly damp,” so I baked it an extra 5 minutes bc I didn’t want to underbake it. Unfortunately, I let it cool in the pan, and it stuck when removing it, so that’s why I have a chunk of cake for my picture.
Since hardly anybody knows what a Swedish Visiting Cake is, I just called it a lemon coconut cake (or lemon almond if you use those). Thanks to Nancy of The Dogs Eat The Crumbs for choosing this yummy, moist cake! You can find the recipe on page 197 of Baking: From My Home To Yours or on Nancy’s blog.
