Norwegian Nut Danish

It's Sunday and you know what that means...I'll be baking this afternoon.

This recipe comes from my B is for Breakfast cookbook. It's one I make often. If you try it I hope you enjoy it.

So, what's going on in your neighborhood today? Anything you care to share?

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Norwegian Nut Danish

2 cups flour
2 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
15 oz. undrained crushed pineapple
2 t. baking soda
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts
½ t. salt
8 oz. softened cream cheese
6 T. butter
1 t. vanilla
1 2/3 cups confectioner’s sugar

In a large mixing bowl whisk eggs until fluffy. Add granulated sugar and whisk until incorporated. Add flour, pineapple, baking soda and salt and beat until batter forms. Add half of the walnuts.

Pour batter into a 13"x9" baking dish.

Place baking dish in a pre-heated 350-degree oven and bake for 50 minutes. Cool cake before spreading frosting over top of cake.

While cake is baking, assemble frosting. Combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add the confectioner’s sugar and beat well. Add remaining nuts and stir. May be used to frost this cake or any other cake that calls for a plain nut frosting.

Nuts AND dairy. A double no-no in our house. But it looks so good!

Someday, when the kids move out....
