krasupea1(10)Father’s Day in Estonia is always celebrated and observed on Second Sunday of November each year. So, Happy Fathers Day!!!
And lets bake one cake for all fathers 🙂

This is “retro” cake. A sour cream layer cake with a topping made from chunks of white cake mixed with sour cream that looks like a curly hairdo (kräsupea). This cake from times, when in stores were nothing.
My cake look very decent 🙂 ( to get better photo 🙂 ). I did not made last layer from cake cubes but as usual layer.

For lazy people tip: you can use just cookies and do not waste time for baking layers.
For better result leave cake to set overnight.

Apple Cake by Moonika. Moonika Ăµunakook

Monika kook1(19)This is again the very simple cake. If you do not have time, use biscuit cookies (like Lady Fingers or similar) for bottom and ready Pudding.

Apples are not my first choice. Apples are usual. And if you have so wide choice, why to pick the apples?

And then somewhere someone serving to me some apple jam and…I am sold.
My mother told me, when I was baby I had very bad appetite. One trick to make me eat was use everywhere apple jam and hide others ingredients and food under it 🙂

The key of this cake is apple jam. Specific  mild apple taste.

The Cat Artur Cake. Revised. Kass Arturi kook

 

Estonia has not linked with the corn. We have too cold climate to grow maize.
In 1953 was Soviet Union leader Nikita Khrushchev (Hruštšov). He was an interesting type. Made efforts to turn rivers upside down and grow corn everywhere. Even in the North.
So, Estonian farmers tried to grow corn, and the result was, that corn crown ca 30 cm in length. Suitable only for animal fodder 🙂

In 80s year was in Estonia very popular children  TV show
” Saturday Evening with Daddy”. Presenters were uncle Raivo and big fat red cat Artur.

Cat Artur

And in this show was presented and introduced The Cat Artur Cake.  This was very simple but an extra sweet combination from special toffee candies and sweet corn sticks.
I am not very sure that you have both of them in your country, so I did a revised version.  (And this is less sweet and even better 🙂 :).)
