Aggkaka, Ready to Slice

Aggkaka is a Scandinavian breakfast food that is the simplest to make. My sister, Lisa Lyles, discovered this delish food while working at Holden Village in Chelan Washington. If you remember 3, 2, 1,  you can memorize the recipe: 3 eggs, 2 cups milk, 1 cup flour, plus some butter, salt and sugar


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  • Melt 4 Tablespoons butter in a 9×13 inch baking pan in the hot oven.
  • In a medium bowl whisk 3 eggs a minute or two.
  • Whisk in 2 cups milk and then 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt just until blended.
  • Pour batter over the melted butter and place in the oven.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until very puffy and lightly browned
  • The puffiness falls right away, so if you want your guests to visualize this, make sure they are standing at the oven.
  • Cut into 9 squares to serve.
  • You can serve with sifted powdered sugar, maple syrup, fresh or cooked fruit….
  • It’s great reheated as leftovers too!
  • Adding sliced apples to the melted butter and cooking them slightly in the oven before pouring the batter over them is yummy too 🙂

  1. I first had Aggkaka when I went to Holden Village in 1980. Wonderful food!

    My wife, son and I made it our tradition to savor it by having it only for Christmas Day Breakfast. That made it even more special.

    But now the church we attend has a breakfast brunch before Christmas Day worship service – “bring your favorite Christmas Day breakfast food”. We take it to that event; but because there’s some much other great food, I don’t get to enjoy the aggkaka like when it was just the three of us. So this year, for Epiphany Day (January 6; the Twelfth Day of Christmas) I suggested we have aggkaka for breakfast. We (just the two of us now since our son is grown and off doing his own thing in another state) very much enjoyed the special treat of aggkaka with the added apple, which was a very nice, new addition for us. Thanks for suggesting that.

  2. I learned about aggkaka when I was at Holden Village too! Eating this dish reminds me of that special place.
