Danish potato cake / Kartoffelkage
Kartoffelkage – Potato cake, is the name of this cake invented in the beginning of 1900. It doesn´t contain any potato, the name comes from the shape of it. The baker who made this one, obviously didn´t take that point too seriously.. It´s made of Choux-pastry with vanilla-cream, and a top of marzipan, covered with cocoa.
Depending of the quality, the lowest prise will be around 2,5 – 3 USD. A good quality from “La Glace” cost 6,5 USD.
