Viking dessert

In late August, I attendedĀ a pot-luck gathering with a medieval theme (those readers who also follow my Dawn’s Dress Diary blog know more about this!) and for it I decided to pick two recipes from a Viking Age Norse cookbook.

The cookbook can be found here. (PDF)

The first was honey-nut cake, and the second was wheat & hazelnut pudding.
