Introduction

I do not know when I got this recipe, it is in one of my older note books. When the cake is made with cloudberries it is called Myltakaka cause mylta is crushed cloudberries. Brummelkaka is made with blackberries or as they are called in Sweden bearberries and brumm is the sound a bear makes, there is logic to the weird name. I had to go and measure up how much berries I use cause I am used to taking 2 hands of berries for this cake. The berries can be half thawed or fresh.
