Scandinavian Baking

Presented by Kelly Syms
About the class

It’s Fika time! What is Fika? It’s a Swedish word that means to take coffee and cake with friends or coworkers. It’s all about ritual, togetherness and breaking bread (or buns! together). Together we will explore Scandinavian Baking through some classic Fika favourites.

You’ll learn how to culture your own rye starter for Danish Rugbrod, how to perfectly knot Swedish Cardamom or Cinnamon buns and also how to make the classic Dream Cake, a magical layered cake that makes the most of seasonal fruits. Baker Kelly Syms will guide you through a fantastic Fika-fest and even serve you a delicious homemade bowl of soup for lunch with her homemade Rugbrod.

Your Menu…

  • Danish Rugbrod (Dark, savoury and seeded rye bread that’s perfect with open-faced sandwiches)
  • Kardemummabullar (Swedish Cardamom Buns)
  • Swedish Drommekage (Dream Cake, topped with Caramel Oats, Coconut and seasonal fruit)
  • For Lunch we’ll have a warming bowl of soup coupled with rye bread and condiments.
