TWD - Swedish Visiting Cake Bars

This week's Tuesday with Dorie (Dorie's Cookies) recipe is Swedish Visiting Cake Bars.  These are a riff on Dorie's Swedish Visiting Cake.  I could not remember making the cake, but I am in awe of how bad my photos were when I made it!

In essence, these bars comprise an almond flavoured cake topped with a crunchy almond meringue topping.  They are tasty without being ostentatious.  I also liked that they were relatively simple to make.

I chose to cut my bars into triangles as suggested by Dorie, so I got twice as many bars for my effort.  That way, there was more to go around, and the size of the square bar was quite large. 

To see what everyone else made this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD website


  1. I love Swedish baked goods. They're delicious and a bit homely too!

  2. I really wanted to try these however with nut allergies in the house it just was not going to happen! I think they look really good and I will just try and imagine how they tasted:)

  3. We really liked these too. This is my first Swedish Visiting Cake. I still need to make the one from her BFMHTY.

  4. i like looking at my old photos sometimes just to shake my head at myself. haha. i really enjoyed these cake bars, too. they were good with coffee.
