A quick and simple Swedish cake that's moist and not too sweet. Pairs perfectly with coffee. I used almond flour, but the original recipe calls for all-purpose flour, so use whichever you prefer. I added coconut on top for extra texture. From Baking: From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan, via Melanger
