Norwegian Fyrstekake

Ingredients: For the pastry:

  • 2/3 cup (150 g) unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup (100 g) powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


For the almond filling:


  • 10 oz. (300 g) almonds
  • 1 ¼ cup (250 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp (25 g) melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) heavy cream
  • Seeds from ½ vanilla bean


To brush:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon water


  •  Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Grease an 8 or 9-inch (20-24 cm) pie dish. Make the pastry. Put all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the pastry comes together. Do not pulse more than necessary. Dust your work surface with a little flour and roll out the dough.


  • Place on a lined baking tray, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Remove the tray from the refrigerator and use your rolling pin to make sure the dough is evenly rolled. Once rolled, the dough should be about 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick. Use it to line the pie dish and trim off the excess. Gather the excess dough and wrap in plastic wrap for later.  Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.   Make the almond filling. Finely grind the almonds in a food processor with the sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until everything is well blended.





  1. Much of this recipe cannot be viewed. The last thing I’m able to see is to pulse the filling ingredients until well blended.

    How long does it cook? What temperature?
