A classic Danish layered cake, “lagkage” with a modern twist. The cake is normally baked for birthdays and other festive occasions.
No kidding – these are the best buns I have ever made, so give them a try. You can ice them with a mix of icing sugar and water and dip them in coconut flakes.
A traditional danish birthday party is held in the afternoon. One serves coffee or hot chocolate with a layered cake, birthday buns and small danish cookies.
These traditional buns are baked for carnival or “fastelavn” as it is called in Danish. They are supposed to be the part of the big party before lend. Even though nobody upholds lend anymore these buns are widely available in stores and are baked and eaten in February. It is a soft bun filled with custard.
