Fritid is the Scandinavian concept of free time, one way we love to spend our free time is on a picnic, we make a my grandmothers traditional Ginger Cake recipe and then put on our anoraks and head outdoors - be that the backyard, a park or further afield. We love this tradition and you will fall in love with it too.
