Swedish Nut Cake

This may be a vintage recipe but this cake is a classic through and through. And that’s the great thing about The Recipe Tin Project – sometimes you come across a recipe that you otherwise never would have known about but can’t imagine ever doing without again. This Swedish Nut Cake is moist, thanks to a full can of crushed pineapple, but it has some nice crunch too. It also has cream cheese frosting, and I don’t know about you, but I think that makes every cake better.

This recipe card came out of an old recipe tin that I’ve been cooking my way through. I call it the Recipe Tin Project. It’s chock full of old recipe cards, most of which seem to be from the ’60s and ’70s. I love food history, and the idea is to breathe new life into these recipes from the past and maybe learn a technique or two from them along the way. The recipes come from different people with different handwriting and some have sweet illustrations while others are on plain (often smudged and stained) index cards.

This card comes with a vibrant little picture of a pot, an artichoke, and some mushrooms, and the handwriting is in blue ink that’s still bright. There are a few smudges and stains but the card is still easy to read and the ingredients and instructions are thorough and laid out in a logical way. (That’s not always the case with these old cards.)
