Hjónabandssæla - Icelandic Oatmeal & Blueberry Pie

Hjónabandssæla - blueberry oat slice/cake 1921 R

Don't you just love it when you come across a recipe that is easy, delicious and versatile to boot? I wish I could say the same about the spelling!

Hjónabandssæla means 'wedded bliss' and is an Icelandic 'happy marriage cake'. I found the recipe on The Icelandic Amateur Chef, a beautiful food blog written by Hjónabandssæla - blueberry oat slice/cake 1917 R
The base is made from butter, oats, flour and sugar. Spread plenty of Jam over it and top with more oaty mixture

Serve warm or cold with clotted cream - I mixed my cream with some of the blueberry jam

Looks delicious as does the blueberry jam. It's quite an alternative to the wedding cakes we're used to.

Blueberries are still my favourite even after all these years!

I had a wonderful long weekend in Iceland a few years back and was totally blown away by the food (as opposed to any volcano's lol). Never came across this little gem though and I can't wait to give it a try.

Certainly looks good Nic and I do love blueberries!

Looks wonderful.

I've some blueberry growing in pots, but not enough for a jam :(

I'm bookmarking the recipe though :0)

Hjónabandssæla (yes, of course I copy/pasted the name) looks as lovely as its meaning!

I cannot wait for blueberry season!

grace said...

that's one heck of a word! of course, icelandic folks may think the same of 'microbiological' and the like. :)
lovely treat, nic!

Maggie said...

Such a beautiful name and also a beautiful pie!

Jacqueline said...

Oh wow Nic! Mmmmmmmmmmmm :P Oh and that last pic with the swirled clotted cream. I am undone!

Hazel said...

I think this is the first Icelandic recipe I have ever seen! I absolutely love the colours of your photos in this post. Such a beautiful purple in the jam - especially when swirled with the clotted cream... mmmmmm!

Oh my word... that last photo was the kicker. Just the idea of all that creamy goodness oozing over the tart berry crumble is enough to send me overboard!!
