Smörgåstårta for kids Ca: 12 - 16 serv. Ingredients: 1 kg shrimps, with shells White bread, toastbread 3 dl sourcream 3 dl mayonnaise apprx 300 gram smoked ham, lean fresh cucumber 2-3 tblsp grated horseradish dill Instructions: shell the shrimps. Cut all edges off the bread. Place the bread on a large plate. Mix sourcream and mayonnaise, cut ham and cucumber in very small dices and mix with the mayo-creammix. cover the bread with the ham-mayo-cream. Place a layer of bread on top of it. Spread the rest of the ham-mayo-cream on the bread. Place more bread on top. Add some horseradish in mayonnaise and make sure it's not too strong in flavour. Spread this mix all over the bread. Wrap the cake in plastic-foil and leave in the fridge, preferably overnight. If you do that, dont shell the shrimps until it's time to decorate, but I guess you know that. Garnish with shrimps, dill, tomatoes, cucumber or whatever you know your kids appreciate. Just remember to be generous with the filling, the bread is like a sponge and sucks the moist, if you don't add enough filling the smörgåstårta will be dry. I hope you will find this tasty, Greetings from Annita Johansson. up

"Bottom" for smörgåstårtas Hi! Found your yummy recipes for smörgåstårtas and thought I'd send you a recipe for the bottom of a smörgåstårta. Then it will be 100% hand made! This will be enough for at least 3, maybe more plates depending on how thick you make them. 10 dl room tempered milk (do not heat at all!) 5 dl rolled oats 2,5 hg margarine (melted) 1,5hg white sugar 100-150 grams yeast 1,7-2 litre flour Let the oatmeal soak in the milk for a while. Mix the melted cooled butter and the rest of the ingredients. Work the flour into the dough untill it "feels good" Roll out the dough rather thin on greased oven plates, appr. 3-4 baking plates. Let the dough rise for 2 hours. Then bake in oven, 175 - 190 centigrades apprx.10 minutes or until they have that nice golden colour. The recipe is from my mother in law, that's why the measurements and times are only estimates. Bye from Rita. Good luck!
