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)
- Preheat oven to 425°.
- Place 7″ cast iron skillet in the oven for 10 minutes.
- 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.
- Once cooled 10 minutes top with fruit.
