The world's best with peanuts

The world's best or Kvæfjordkake is known to many. Since salty and sweet taste good together, we have made a variant with peanuts. It tastes very good and can be safely recommended.

5 egg yolks

4 tablespoons milk

150 g wheat flour

1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder


5 egg whites

2 dl whipped cream

2 teaspoons vanilla sugar

5 dl finished vanilla cream or cream

Set the oven to 175 ° C.

Stir butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the egg yolks and milk. Add flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder. Cover a long pan with parchment paper and spread the dough evenly.

Beat the egg whites almost stiff with a mixer, add the sugar in a thin stream while whisking and beat until you get a stiff and shiny meringue. Spread the meringue over the dough and sprinkle on the peanuts. Bake the cake in the middle of the oven for 15 – 20 minutes and cool it down.

Divide the cake into two equal parts. Place one part on the plate with the meringue down.

Mix cream and vanilla sugar with the vanilla / rum cream and spread the cream over the bottom.

Place the second cake part on top with the meringue facing up and serve.
