I am so glad to share with you an amazing Norwegian cake, called Kvæfjordkake – or Verdens Beste ( World’s Best Cake) that is absolutely delightful. This cake consists in two layers of soft vanilla sponge cake topped with crispy baked meringue and toasted almonds filled with a smooth and creamy vanilla custard and whipped cream. No wonder why this Norwegian cake was named Verdens Beste meaning the World’s Best Cake as with its great flavor and texture it is truly a delightful experience.
