This Finnish "Puolukkakakku" looks like a quick bread, but this recipe really is a loaf cake. The tart berry jam with sour cream keeps the dessert moist and flavorful. I love that the recipe can me made ahead of time, wrapped and frozen. I found it slices even better the next day.

  • Servings: 8-10


½ cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1½ cups Flour
1 tsp Ground Cardamom
½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
½ cup Sour Cream
½ cup Lingonberry Jam


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 5 X 9 loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix the flour, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the sour cream and jam. Blend the dry ingredients and the sour cream mixture into the butter mixture, mixing until smooth. Turn into the prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to finish cooling.
