If your looking for a bit of wow at your dinner table over the Christmas period I highly recommend making a Christmas Kransekake. It looks quite intricate but it’s actually quite easy and straightforward to make.
Even better it’s wheat free so great if you have anyone in the family who has a wheat intolerance.
I believe it’s a Norwegian wedding cake although don’t quote me on that and up until a few days ago I’d never tasted one let alone make one.
You need to but some special Kransekake pans although you can use the dough to make cookies instead.
To Make Kransekake You Will Need
450g ground almonds
4 egg whites (slightly beaten)
450g icing sugar
Icing sugar, sprinkles, edible glitter etc too decorate
1. The instructions said whisk lightly so I whisked them until they were just starting to peak but still a bit frothy.
2. The instructions said to add 1/4 of the egg white to the ground almonds to make a dough. I found I needed more like half the egg white and the dough was quite crumbly but moist. I mixed it together by hand in a large metal sauce pan as you need to gently heat the dough at the end.
To eat it just start at the top and break off the layers
This is so easy to make and looks amazing. I great alternative to cake!
