It is no secret that I am obsessed with anything Scandinavian and also no secret that given the opportunity I will happily bake for guests (or just myself) Scandinavian treats. I have yet to master the art of the cardamom bun, but I am adding more and more cakes to my Scandi repertoire.
I made this loaf cake way back in January for a gathering of the Edinburgh branch of the Clandestine Cake Club. The theme that evening was comfort cakes; Cakes to Feed the Soul, and I felt that this oatbake from The Nordic Bakery fit the bill perfectly. It is basically a warm bowl of oatmeal with berries in loaf form...perfect for any time of the day or year!
I love this loaf cake. It is dense from the oats that have been soaked in hot milk, and the fruit gets really squidgy and sweet when it is baked. I imagine it could be sliced once cooled and then frozen in individual portions making the perfect grab and go breakfast bar.
I've managed to find a link to the recipe on the Fuss Free Flavours website so you can try for yourself!
