A true Icelandic classic, traditionally made with fermented and very sour milk and topped with cocoa-coffee buttercream and coconut flakes.
Here, the old recipe is revisited and simplified by using Vanilla Bean Extra Creamy Skyr for the cake and the frosting is simply luscious swirls of our Extra Creamy Coffee Skyr.
There is not a home in Iceland that doesn’t have a recipe for Skúffukaka, hand written on a slightly yellowed piece of paper somewhere in the pantry. It is THE cake Icelanders bake for any and all occasions and most children successfully learn to bake on their own from a young age. And it might just be inevitable to go through life without having Skúffukaka served at least once on your birthday when growing up in Iceland.
Skúffukaka is easy to make and absolutely delicious, best served in small squares along with an ice cold glass of milk or a piping hot cup of coffee.
