RECIPE BACKSTORY
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.
