Every husband loves this cake. Therefore it was given this name and is one of the old classic Icelandic cakes wives used to make if they wanted to spoil their husbands. It is not too sweet and goes greatly with a cup of coffee. And VIP not only husbands love this cake :-)

This is how my dear grandmom made this cake.

runnergirl check out my recipie box, i got the us - europe measure help in it ;) and while you are there, check out my plum jam, when you use that one its just sooo homemade tasty

Is there any chance of getting American conversions for the ingredients? I have looked at a few tables and they seem to vary significantly. This sounds like a delicious, easy breakfast or dessert. thanks! Molly

the women used to bake this one for their husbands when they were coming home from sea ... last time I made this for my man I used my German-Plum Jam (recepie on my profile ) ;o) and it works girl ;-) i cant imagine a man who doesnt like this one ... ;o)
