I had my first taste of this cake when I first visited Norway, I asked my mom what is the name of the cake and she said: “Favoritt Kake” or Favorite Cake in English. Okay, so when people ask me what is my favorite cake, I will say “favorite cake”. Baka sabihin pilosopo pa ko. Hehehe! Anyway, it is now known as “The World’s Best Cake” or Kvæfjordkake.
My mom always bakes a cake every weekend. They have a fellowship every Sunday and she always brings food and cake for potluck. She knew that I like favoritt kake so she baked it and she said to me “Kumuha ka agad nito kasi pagkaserve nito, nauubos agad”. Waah! So I said, magbake na lang ng iba, dito na lang yan cake sa bahay. So I baked rainbow cupcake to replace the cake. Hehehe!
If you are following me on Instagram @michisolee, you already see this cake. The World’s Best Cake is a layered cake, there is sponge cake, meringue with almonds and vanilla cream. There is a different texture on each layer of the cake and every bite is heaven.
I watched my mom in making this cake and my only contribution is putting the chopped almonds. Hehehe! Effort din sa paggawa ha because you have to mix three different batters/cream. First, she prepared the batter for sponge cake then put the meringue with almonds on top. Bake together.
Indeed, it is the “The World’s Best Cake”. If you don’t believe me, try it and let me know your experience. Happy eating!
