Runeberg Torte (Boozy Almond and Cookie Cakes)
So good you'll want to write a sonnet about it
Hello to all you wonderful RLC subscribers!
To new subscribers, welcome! This newsletter is where I share memoir essays about restaurant kitchen life, and recipes I think you’ll love.
This week I want to tell you about my very favourite cake called Runeberg Torte. It comes from Finland (where I live) and it’s named after a poet called Johan Runeberg who enjoyed cake and booze for breakfast.
It’s easy to make, delicious, and drenched in a liqueur called Swedish Punsch (unless you choose for it not to be, I give you options below).
Thanks for being here,
