Christmas in Denmark…Brune Kager (or Brown Cakes)

MCAs father made 3 kinds of biscuits for Christmas (he always makes them), but one type in particular is mouthwateringly good. So I asked for the recipe, and here it is for you to try as well…

125g fat

125g margarine

250g brown sugar

250g syrup (turnip syrup?)

7g potash

66.5g nuts (chopped almonds)

2.5g carnation? (as a herb I was told) [nellike]

10g cinnamon

66.5g  (citron) candied peel [sukat]

grate half a lemon

625g flour

Method:

Heat the syrup and cool it.

Dissolve the potash in a small amount of boiling water

Add all the ingredients together, and work well.

Roll into long rolls.

Refrigerate the mixture

Cut into thin slices

Cook at 180 degrees for about 8 minutes

IF you can find the ingredients (I think in Malta you may have as much problem with these ingredients as we had with condensed milk in Malta), I am sure you will love them 🙂 Here is a picture to try to tempt you…
