You are doing it to me igjen! Faren min used to make this! Delicious! It was the best part of going back east at Christmas when I was in college(did you guess Northfield?). Chez Jude used to be a bakery and made the best cardamom cookies. I would eat them and get misty-eyed from the memories it brought back.


Jon- What fantastic Nisse Engelsk (a good blend of NOR and ENG) you speak! I'm sure Chez Jude's cookies were great as everything they make is delicious. Northfield, huh? Were you an Ole or from the Carleton persuasion? My maternal grandparents met at St. Olaf in the 40s.


This looks delicious! Will be trying this myself!

I've been thinking of making julekake this holiday season and thought I'd check your blog to see if you had a recipe. Sure enough, you do! I grew up eating it with gjetost as well, and love it. Thanks for the recipe!


I see you made yeastspotting!


Your gramma, Myrtle Larson, would be so proud of you!


Yes, she would!


Thanks so much for the recipe! My family comes from Norway originally but we've lost all our Norwegian in America. The whole family has loved the bread and I think it might be a new tradition in our family. We're stuck, though, on how to pronounce it. Could you help?


Hi Sarah,

Glad that you can get some use of our my julekake recipe, it really is quite good!

As for the pronounciation, Yul-eh-ka-keh is my best shot at spelling it out phonetically. Jul means Christmas (maybe you already knew that) and Kake is a general term for any type of sweet treat (cakes, cookies, quick breads, etc....)

Hope you do try the recipe and that it turns out well for you. Happy holidays!

Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you just could do with some p.c. to pressure the message home a little bit, but other than that, that is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
