Runebergintorttuja – Runeberg Torte is a Finnish pastry named after the Finnish national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg and is traditionally made and eaten on February 5th, Runeberg’s birthday. Runeberg cakes are dense, super moist, bursting with great flavours of cardamom, almonds, ginger and zest. Almond meal and biscuit crumbs lend a great texture. Laced with rum syrup and jam topping with icing ring makes it to die for dessert. It takes a lot of time to make them but the effort is well rewarded!
