Pretty cupcake

messmorsbakelse

Isn't this gorgeous? No, I didn't make it. I ate it, though!

It has Swedish "messmör" in it, which might sound scary - it's soft whey butter, and a popular sandwich spread here. It's sweet, caramelly and slightly salty at the same time, and I get a hankering for it about once a year. Here, the messmör is used to flavor a white chocolate cream, and it's paired with a cloudberry mousse and a dark chocolate cake. Delicious, in every way. I wish I had another one.

messmör has a slight tint of dulce de leche flavour to it doesn't it? I don't like messmör so I never eat it but I've read somewhere the production of messmör and condensed milk is somewhat the same.

Yes, that's true! And it has a bit of vanilla, as well.

this sounds like my idea of heaven. where can i buy it? (i'll be in stockholm in december)

a note on messmor (which i adore)... two friends reluctantly agreed, on two completely separate occasions (and who have never met), to taste it and both thought it tasted of fish! one was turkish and one was english...

Anne said...

Sorry Waspgoddess, I don't think you can. I think it was just a special promo from the producers, Fjallbrynt. Too bad, it was so tasty.

Hi Anne. I just bought a Messmörcake at Törners here in Östersund today. I'm having my little early birthdayparty for my relatives tomorrow. Nice to read your comment about it.
And Åsa's comment, the inventor of this lovely cake.
I am raised with a lot of messmör and brown goat cheese, I simply love it. I was so glad when I heard about this cake :)

I had a cupcake today from a place in DC, where lines are forming up for people to get a taste. Not so good, I have to say. Yours looks much yummier. Thanks for sharing!
