Whether or not the Vikings are to blame for much of this, Scandinavians and Irish have a lot in common. Just look at the way we indulge in potatoes, beer, stews and old-fashioned bread made from rye etc.
Apple Potato Cake
Beef in Guinness
Herb Dumpling Stew
Irish Roast Pork with Potato Stuffing
50 grams margarine
200 grams flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
6 deciliters (or 3 cups) mashed potatoes
2 big apples
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1½ teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons margarine
4 tablespoons margarine
1 deciliter sugar
1 deciliter lemon juice
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon grated lemon-peel
Cut pieces of margarine and mix with the flour.
Add salt and baking powder and mix thoroughly!
Then add the mashed potatoes, mix. Work the dough for a few minutes.
Make two round cakes with a layer of apple-slices on top of one of them. Put the other cake on top and seal them by slightly pinching at the rim
Use a frying-pan and fry at a low temperature. Fry both sides. Take the lid off (lift the "top-cake") and finish off by sprinkling the apple-side with sugar and cinnamon and some butter. Put the top-cake back on and fry another 5 minutes.
Serve with Lemon Curd and tea.
Lemon Curd is made by putting all the ingredients above (See under Lemon Curd!), except for the lemon peel, in a pan. Stir with a wooden ladle continuously, and don't allow boiling! Mix well!
The egg yolks must not stiffen/harden/coagulate.
Pour the mixture into a little bowl and add the grated lemon peel. Set aside to cool.

If there's any Guinness left from the bottle once the liquid is poured into the casserole, the Swedish chef may be interested...
