Purchase Swedish Cakes and Cookies (book)
Known as “Sju sorters kakor” in Sweden, this popular cookbook is a modern classic. It features cookies, sweet breads, butter cakes, tortes and other delights of the Swedish dessert table. The first edition came out in 1945, right after the war with its years of rationing, when home cooks were exicted about baking again. Over the years it has been continuously modernized and improved so that today’s edition, with almost 300 recipes, is a combination of new, modern cakes, cookies and pastries, as well as classic favorites. Prize-winning recipes from earlier editions are noted. Ingredients are common and easy to find, and if not, substitutions are suggested. For those with dietary concerns, there's an index directing you to 33 gluten-free, 8 sugar-free, and 54 egg-free recipes. Over 3.4 million copies of this exciting cookbook have sold in Sweden over the years. Every easy-to-follow recipe is accompanied by a color picture of the finished treat. 184 pages, hardcover. All in English.
