Swedish Nut Cake

Krista Hiner


My mother, a friend and I were attending a private dinner party and fell in love with this cake. Mom suggested I find the person who brought this dessert and I did! She sent me this recipe by email and it has been a family favorite and top seller for our VFW fundraisers.
