My famous Skyr Cake

Icelandic Skyr Cake
My famous ‘Skyr Cake’ is always a big hit – it is very fresh yet sweet, crunchy and soft – A delicious treat as dessert or as birthday cake. If you are a fan of cheese cake you will love this one. You can make this cake weeks in advance, just put in straight in the freezer after you make it. You can buy ‘Skyr’ in Iceland, Denmark, Sweden and at Wholfoods in the US. Skyr Cake Recipe
