Scandinavian almond cake with butter rum glaze is easy to make and oh so yummy! The warm glaze over the warm cake is a perfect dessert anytime!
Almond cake is arguably a northern recipe. No one knows if the Swedes or Finns brought it to the States, but each claims responsibility and has their own spin on this popular and traditional Scandinavian dessert.
What makes it so unique is not only its flavor, but the elongated pan it’s baked in–it’s a beveled pan and each bevel is just enough for one slice. There are recipes out there for rum cake, but this isn’t a rum cake, it’s an almond cake with a rum glaze. Instead of using vanilla extract, like you would in a rum cake, this recipe calls for almond extract.
