Baking Challenge – European Style: Week 5 – Iceland

This week I’ve decided to get a bit more “exotic” with my culinary challenge. And also to venture onto an island I’ve never been before but would love to visit: Iceland!

Aside from it’s wild and beautiful nature, Iceland also offers an interesting variety of food specialties. Although a lot of traditional recipes are
inspired by the most available resources like fish, e.g., they also have some traditional pastries to satisfy any sweet tooth. One of them is hjonabandssaela – which I have no idea how to pronounce but apperently is a rolled oats cake with plum marmelade. I think it sounds great.

So stay tuned to find out what an hjonabandssaela looks and tastes like! And if you’re from Iceland, please let me know what’s the best hjonabandssaela recipe is! Thanks.
