Smörgåstårta = Swedish Sandwich Cake

20130804_171322Smörgåstårta = “sandwich cake”

It’s one of those foods that I enjoy so much that I almost have no pictures of it and only one, taken over the past five years of smörgastårtas, before it’s cut.


It’s pretty much exactly what you’re imagining, a sandwich in the form of a cake. Bread layers with a variety of fillings and mayonnaise coating wrapped in cucumber and lettuce and topped with tomato wedges, cheese and caviar.

Ours are vegetarian and have a cottage cheese and pineapple filling between the bread and another of egg salad but they can be made however you like. I know they often have tuna salad between the bread on the meaty ones and rolls of ham on top.


This might sound a little strange but if you ever have the chance to try it, go for it!
