Danish cream cake, Medalje

April 24, 2013

medalje

Time for a traditional Danish “flødeskumskage” – cream cake. This one is called “Medalje” /medal. Invented, as many of the other cream cakes, about 1900, when it became possible to keep the cream cold. A medal is made out of two  circular plates of sweet tart dough, with pastry cream and whipped cream between. On top glazed with icing and decorated with whipped cream and fruit or as here, chocolate . I payed about 20 Danish kroner  or 3,5 US dollar for this one.

    That cake, with a cup of coffee, would be really good right about now!

        Personally, I would just give in to temptation and enjoy the cake – with a cup of tea or coffee or hot cocoa. No sense in letting it get old!😀
