Runebergintorttu is a Finnish - Swedish dessert named after the famous poet Johan Ludwig Runeberg (February 5, 1804 - May 6, 1877). His wife Fredrika in order to satisfy her husband's sweet tooth used what she had on hand in her kitchen to create what has now become a national dessert to celebrate the poet's birth. There are two things that we have in common with the Runeberg family; a large family of six kids and a husband who has a very sweet tooth! Let's get started!
