This Vietnamese cake Bánh Bò Nướng is one iconic cake in Vietnamese cuisine. The name comes from the honeycomb structure which can be seen when you cut a cross section of the cake. Honeycomb cake is traditionally served warm and is perfect on its own or with a nice cup of hot tea. I love this cake and it is great if you are glutenintolerant.
I am sharing a food memory tonight to honor my Aunt Martha who passed away. Today was her funeral. I could not be there since the funeral was in Norway and due to Covid-19 it is not possible for me to partake. So to honor my aunts memory and life I have baked and eaten this Anise Pretzel that she used to bake. Any time I want I can in my mind smell it and remember the taste of her “Aniskringle.” I loved it and it was only when visiting her as a child I got this particular pretzel. My aunt had just turned 90 years old before Christmas. Peace and love to her memory.
It is quick and easy to make this luxurious sandwich yourself at home. Last week I suddenly felt like eating sandwiches. I started out with Norwegian Sandwiches and than continued to Club Sandwich. I had sliced meat in the freezer from my Christmas ham and even the other ingredients I needed at home. So I was exited to both make and eat my creation.
