Skåne, my country … Sweden’s most southern county, 1 241 075 people lives here. – our highest point is 212 meter over the sea – a county of farmers, sandy beaches, Absolut Vodka, apples, purple trains, the REAL Wallander and a twisted building plus a bridge over to Denmark – but also “Äggakaka” – “Eggcake”and nobody can do “Äggakaka” as mum. Here is her recipe.
Mamma’s Äggakaka (Mum’s Eggcake) , 4 portions
400 g sliced cured bacon
50 ml flour
6 dl milk (3%)
15 gr butter
45 ml (3 tbsp) caster sugar
5 ml (1tsp) salt
1 pinch of pepper
1.Whisk together eggs, flour, milk, sugar salt and pepper to a smooth paste and let rest for about 30 min.
2. Fry the bacon, remove the bacon and keep warm
3. Pour the batter into the hot pan. Stick, while the egg mixture solidifies, with a wooden spatula to dissolve the batter to flow down and solidify. When the cake has set, a little on the surface, turn it over to a pot lid or a plate.
4. Add the butter to the pan and let egg cake gently glide back to the pan. Bake the other side until egg cake completely solidified.
5. Turn the cake and serve with bacon and lingonberry jam (IKEA)
