Summer Cooking

Welcome Monday!

After a super hot weekend it's raining today
I'm pretty happy and the nature must love this too.
On Saturday I wanted to try something alternative
to regular cooking
For me hot meals on hot days aren't
the most desired choice so
I decided to make a layered sandwich cake instead

You might know these cold cakes are
pretty popular in Scandinavia
they are often offered at spring and summer parties
but it's just fine to make one any day
for yourself and your family!

My cake was a vegetarian one but fish and shrimps are popular fillings
Some prefer several layers, I had two on mine
I didn't follow any recipe but here is one to check out
Improvising is always accepted
For example I wanted to avoid mayonnaise
and used plain yogurt mixed with fresh cheese (such as Philadelphia)
My fillings had diced tomatoes with basil and
spring onions with parsley + grated cucumber
These cakes taste the best on the following day...

Have a happy week!
