Goodies in Aalborg: What you need to try this fall

By: Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

We’re halfway through fall break, and whether you’re off work, cozying up at home, or working 9 to 5 there’s plenty of things to enjoy about the season.

You can break out all your favorite, fuzzy sweaters, light candles, and of course enjoy something delicious on the side. We’ve put together a guide so you have an overview of the all goodies you should try this season.

Prepare to expand your horizon and gain great memories – as well as a few pounds.

Afternoon Tea at Salling Rooftop

Why not start on the top? That’s at least where you’re headed if you decide to start with a round of afternoon tea at Salling Rooftop.

Here you’ll be served a selection of finger sandwiches, cakes, and scones, beautifully arranged on a three-tier cake stand, along with tasty sides and a pot of tea.

Hot tea and cakes. It doesn’t get any cozier than that, does it?

The Christmas stall by Salling

After enjoying some sophisticated afternoon tea, you should head down to Salling’s entrance by Algade and visit the Christmas stall that just opened.

The stall offers all the best Christmas goodies such as the classic candied almonds, churros with ice cream, candy apples, and other crunchy delights.

Is there anything more appealing than the smell of candied almonds? We think not.

The stall is open from 10:30 to 17:00 during weekends and 11:00 to 18:00 during weekdays.

Danish dream cake roll from Surdejsbageren

A short while ago, Surdejsbageren introduced a new kind of baked good: the Danish dream cake roll (drømmekagesnegl).

The roll is made from the same dough as the baker’s flavorful cinnamon roll but instead of cinnamon you’re treated to brown sugar and coconut, which is spread across the dough, rolled up, and then baked.

Right now the dream cake roll is limited edition but we’ve been told that if you’re fast, you can get one today!

Rum balls from Mabel Kafferi

If you haven’t already visited Mabel to chow down some of Denmark’s Best Rum balls, fall is the perfect season to do so.

Mabel became an official distributor of the goodies in September and has already sold hundreds of the famous rum balls.

If one isn’t enough, you could embark on our Tour de Rum Ball – because who knows where your personal favorite might be hiding.

Cake tapas from Caféministeriet

Now that you’ve sped around town to try all the different delicacies, you might want to try something that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home.

Local café Caféministeriet recently launched its version of cake tapas, which offers you the best from the world of cakes.

The amount of seatings in the café does not correspond to the many cake-loving locals so Caféministeriet decided to offer the tapas as a takeaway option in October – for just 99 kr!

Order your cake tapas by e-mail (mad@cafeministeriet.dk) or phone 98 19 40 50.

Gingerbread cake at Penny Lane

If you’re of the conviction that Christmas decorations should stay hidden until the 1st of December then stay far away from Penny Lane!

The café and bakery has gone all-in on Christmas, and you’ll find everything from glittery curtains to swirling carousels and Christmas elves in all shapes and colors.

Instead of chewing on the golden tinsel, we have a much better suggestion:

Penny Lane has also “decorated” its cake display and that means that you’ll be able to indulge in the bakery’s legendary Christmas goodies.

One of our personal favorites is the gingerbread cake (honningbomben), which brings us right back to our childhood.
