Holy matrimony!

This cake is called ‘matrimonial bliss´ in Iceland .. This a very old recipe, which I think every Icelandic family has and fond memories to go with it. It is much loved to say the least and that is because it is very quick and easy to make and it tastes delicious.

My Recipe

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Yields: 10


  • 150g wholegrain spelt (or other wheat you love)
  • 150g oats
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 70g coconut palm sugar (or other sugar you prefer)
  • 180g melted butter
  • Around 200ml of jam


  1. Heat oven to 180°C
  2. Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon for instance (very easy!) Sometimes I rinse the oats under cold water in a coolander first.
  3. Press 3/4 of the dough into an oven proof dish, spread the jam over and then crumble the rest of the dough over.
  4. Bake for around 25-30 minutes.
