This was the second dessert for Josh’s birthday.  I made a simply and easy cake, Krupsua.  This cake has Norwegian origins and is like a large pancake.  You can enjoy it for breakfast as it’s not really sweet.  This was actually pretty good.  Very simple but that’s what I was going for.  Next time I will add more almond extract, the flavor was too mild and I will use butter instead of the oil.  I didn’t want to use more dairy than the recipe called for, but some sort of filling (chocolate, whip cream, ect) would have been a nice compliment.  Also I have officially decided my favorite food is a fresh fig!




  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/4 T Sugar
  • 2/3 C Milk
  • 1/3 t Almond
  • 1/3 C Flour (I used spelt)
  • 1/3 t Oil
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Fresh Fruit (I used figs, raspberries, and blackberries)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Place 7″ cast iron skillet in the oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs and sugar with a mixer. Add milk and almond (you can substitute vanilla). Wisk in flour. Take skillet out of the oven, coat with oil and pour batter in. Bake 20 minutes until fluffy like a soufflé and golden on edges. Remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes. It will deflate.
  4. Once cooled 10 minutes top with fruit.

    I’m not aware if there is a Norwegian version (perhaps there is), but ‘Krupsua’ is a Finnish word for a Finnish pancake. I’m Finnish-American and I grew up eating these. They’re awesome.
