Moist almond cakelets rolled in aromatic crushed cardamom seeds and sugar.
This small independent bakery located in a church square in Stockholm is filled with all sort of delicious-looking treats. These little cakelets caught my eye immediately because I love cardamom.
When I bit into my tiny cake I was literally speechless at how good it was. It was made with almond meal, which made it both incredibly moist and dense at the same time. The prominent almond taste was accompanied by the strong flavour of vanilla and egg, reminiscent of custard, with the overriding taste of the fresh-crushed cardamom seeds making it fragrant and slightly spicy.
It was such a deliriously good combination that I immediately ran back inside and bought 6 more cakelets to share with my family. The guy behind the counter told me that they were an original concoction dreamed up by the baker, who had named them Mummas (an abbreviation of the word cardamom in Swedish).
Grillska Husets Brödbod is located on Gamla Stan, the old town on Stadsholmen which is the island in the center of Stockholm.
