'Bløtekake' (also 'Bløtkake') literally means soft cake - and is Norway's version of a Victoria sponge. The difference is that a Bløtekake is lighter - as it is traditionally made with a fat free sponge, ie. a type of Genoise sponge.
Layered with seasonal berries or fruit and whipped cream it is a traditional celebration cake in Norway - enjoyed for any occasion from birthdays to weddings, anniversaries and leaving parties. Easy to tweak to your preferences and great to look at. Ticks all the boxes in our book.
You can use any sponge cake recipe you like - this is the one Martina's Norwegian mormor (maternal grandmother) has been using forever. The mix of regular flour and potato flour makes for an extra tender crumb.
