Smörgåstårta , The Swedish Sandwich Cake

BM # 68
Day : 3
Theme : One Category - Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme - Sandwich Cakes

My third days post for Cooking Carnival is a special post. This post got glued to my mind, it is a Swedish Cake which Rajani had posted sometime back, I knew I had to make it as I simply loved it .You could check her post for step by step pictures.

The cake is called Smorgastarta and is normally served on most occasions in Sweden. Normally the fillings include cold cut meats along with veggies, but of course this is a vegetarian version and I followed Rajani's version, except for a little tweet.

I choose the sub theme of cakes this week as I had to post a cake for Dad's birthday. His birthday is tomorrow , but since we are off from posting on Sunday's I decided to post a day in advance.

Happy Birthday Dad ! God Bless you !
Here are the cakes that I have been posting on Dad's Birthday since a couple of years 

For a long time I always got a tear in my eye when I thought of him, but not anymore. I fondly think of him and smile. He was a wonderful person and has taught and given us values of life .So with a smile lets get on to this Swedish Cake which happens to be served on special occasions.



3 slices of bread, jumbo slices

Filling no 1

2 tbsp herbed cottage cheese
1 tbsp colored capsicums
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp coriander leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

Filling no 2
2-3 tbsp finely chopped lettuce, carrot, beet root, cucumber
2-3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp thick yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste

Outer Frosting
3/4 cup thick yogurt
2-3 tbsp mayonnaise
Pinch salt

Coriander leaves
Or run your imagination

How to go about
Cut the bread slices into circles using a sharp edged round cutter, any kind of jar lid would do.
Apply butter on each side of the slice.
Prepare both the fillings by mixing in the ingredients specified under them.
Place the first slice, spread filling no 1.
Cover with the second slice, spread filling no 2.
Cover it with the third slice.

Frosting the cake

Beat the yogurt to a smooth texture.
Add the mayo and salt.
Mix well.
Spread it all over the cake , covering the top and sides.
Garnish with your choice of ingredients.
Chill and serve.
