Amazing berry cake with crispy bottom and top and juicy filling. Marzipan is very sweet and tartness of berries balancing and complements the light sweet almond taste of the marzipan.
Marzipan is one of the oldest sweets made in Estonia, and it was first used as a medicine as it was thought it has healing properties and was sold in the Town Hall Pharmacy of Tallinn. As the legend has it, the sweet was invented by a man who worked at the pharmacy. However, the city of Lübeck in Germany also claims to have invented the treat.
The word “marzipan” is derived from German Marzipan or Italian marzapane, most likely after St. Marcus; the Estonian name is martsipan. This product is an elastic paste made of grated, powdered almonds and powdered sugar. Read more about marzipan
Historically kama was a non-perishable, easy-to-carry food that could be quickly fashioned into a stomach-filling snack by rolling it into butter or lard; it didn’t require baking, as it was already roasted. Today the Kama is a perfect summer dish. Just add quark cream and dessert is ready!
The Kama is not translatable and technically not a dessert, but rather an ingredient sometimes used in desserts. It’s actually a mix of different flours – usually barley, rye, oat and pea. The Kama, like many Estonian foods, emerged because a lack of ingredients made people imaginative. After using all the different grains, they would simply mix the leftovers together.
You do not have the Kama 🙂 ?! Look at for recipe. Honestly. I do not know what to replace it with 🙂
Because the specific taste of Kama gives the necessary and specific and delicious taste.
Did you know? In Estonian Kama means in slang “stuff, things” and the same time the Kama means ” drugs”…:)
And the Kama is not only “muesli”: In desperate times, people turn to cheap comfort food. In the 1970s, cocoa prices skyrocketed, pushing chocolatey sweets out of reach for millions of people. In the Soviet Union, states lacked buying power because the government centralized foreign trade. Chocolate became extremely scarce in the Baltic countries. During the shortage, an Estonian candy company began experimenting with kama—a grain blend of rye, wheat, barley, and pea—to find chocolate alternatives.

This is a classical Seto salad. Traditionally it is made with herring, but I got freshly smoked Peipsi Lake vendace …
Look at this! See, if it is not appetizing : ) 🙂
A combination of strawberries and fish may seem strange. But sour and sweet berries complement saltness of fish very well. The onion adds a structure and a sparkle.
And rye bread. This is just a base. The heart of this salad.
Cleanse fish. Herring or other smoked and salty fish
Toast rye bread and cut into slices
Cut strawberries into slices
Chop (red) onion. If you are going to use “white” onion, I suggest to marinate it for a couple of the minutes in strawberry juice. For salad dressing
season sour cream with pepper and (taste your fish !!) with salt.
Simple and Delicious Sour Milk and Semolina Cake. This one of the cakes that makes your fantasy work.
You can bake it as simple version or add lot of different ingredients and additives and get every day new cake.
Why not to add some berries. Or nuts. Or during wintertime little bit candied fruit and ginger and cinnamon. …
This cake would like to have the accompany a sauce or jelly or kissell.
This is real and very Estonian cake. And what is important: this is not baked cake. And what is more important; this is weight watchers cake 🙂 Quark and yoghurt have low-fat but full of protein. Fermented rye bread contains B group vitamins and good probiotic bacteria. And cowberries are a source of vitamins and antioxidants.
And forget this previous story:)
Prepare this because of taste and flavour not benefit 🙂
Quark and rye bread and cowberries give Estonian flavour. Wonderful combination of sour and sweet soft and crispy.
Did you know: There has been a long debate over who erected the first Christmas tree, Tallinn or Riga. We’re not going to take sides, but some historical sources report that in 1441, the Brotherhood of Blackheads brought trees into their guild houses for the holidays in Reval (Tallinn). On the last night of holiday celebrations, the tree was taken to the Town Hall Square. This tradition still continues today in Tallinn’s Town Hall Square. If you’re looking to get your own tree this holiday, download the RMK mobile app, which shows you where you can cut your own tree from the state forests. Afterwards, you’re asked to pay a small fee, by internet bank transfer of course, and voilà, the tree is yours!

Estonians call this dish ” pork treats” 🙂
Kama breading gives for meat special sweet taste. In case you do not have Kama, use rye bread crumbs. The tart plum sauce complements pork sweetness very well.
This is a very soft, tender pie. Use for toppings apples, berries or just cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Milk keeps this pie fresh and soft for days… in case you really have leftovers.
The fragrant smell of cinnamon and baked apples mingling with the heady blend of soft bread……
You know. So
Take a glass of cold milk and.. there is cake no more 🙂
