Buttermilk and Cinnamon cake

Yesterday I had a group of Norwegian friends visiting.
There is quite a few Norwegians in Houston,
due to the oil business.
Groups has formed in different areas of town,
forming new friendships and making the transition easier.
In my group everybody brings a little something to eat.
We meet in each others homes,
and yesterday we where about ten girls here.


I made this very easy cake,
it has no eggs,
and here is the recipe:


1 liter buttermilk
4 cups sugar
6 cups flour
4 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup melted butter (margarine)
3 tsp baking soda (mixed with a little buttermilk)
350F for 45 min.

Alternate wet and dry,
and mix well,


poor into a lined large oven pan.

In preheated oven,
cook for 45 min - 350F

When done, let it cool about 45 min - 1 hour
before putting the "chocolate-glaze" on:

Chocolate topping:
1 tsp vanilla sugar (vanilla concentrate}
1 tbsp cocoa
1 stick softened butter (about 100gr) I use margarine
250 gr powdered sugar
3-4 tbsp coffee

Sprinkle coconut on top.

It is very good warm!
Enjoy!!


Jeg hadde 10 norske jenter paa besoek i gaar.
Det er mange av oss her i Houston pga all olje virksomheten her.
Forskjellige grupper moetes i forskjellige omraader av byen,
ettersom hvor en bor.

Vi samles av og til hjemme hos hverandre,
og pleier ta med oss litt hver til aa "bite i".
Her er oppskriften til kaka vi spiste,
veldig enkel, ingen egg:

1 liter sur melk
4 kopper sukker
6 kopper mel
4 ss kanel
1 kopp smeltet smoer (margarin er ok)
3 ts natron (mikses i litt av surmelken)

Miks alt godt sammen,
alterner toerrt og vaatt.

Stekes paa 180 gr C i 45 minutter

La kaka sitte litt foer du tar paa fyllet,

Sjokolade fyll:

1 ts vaniljesukker
1 ss kakao
100 gr mykt smoer
250 gr melis
3-4 ss kaffe

Sprinkle kokos over

Kaka smaker veldig godt naar den enda er litt varm...
Lykke til!

Ser deilig ut! Tusen takk for oppskrift. Jeg har også mitt lille flagg å vifte med. Send meg en email så kan jeg fortelle deg hvordan man skriver norske bokstaver? Det tok meg lang tid å oppdage det :)

My goodness I didn't realize how long it has been since I visited your blog. I LOVE the mittens and the little sweater. AND thank you for sharing the receipt for the cake cause you knew I was going to ask you for it. Looks like Mexico was gorgeous. We had a great time in Galveston too. I'm still trying to catch up though. Maybe next week I can join you at The Hen House!

Your blog always makes me feel "at home". I'll have to try this cake with my coffee - it looks yummy! I saw your note on Hege's blogg re. Norwegian letters. You don't need ascii codes, just go into your "Control Panel" and "Keyboards" to chose a "Norwegian" keyboard (you can then alternate between keyboards as you need them). You just have to remember that ;=ø '=æ and [=å.
