Kakelinna (Cake Linna)

From dry to soft snow. Temperature has gone up till +2 C. Expecting rain later. Time for baking with reference to Wikipedia:
Cake Linna, at some places also called lefsetøvær or lefsetøyra, a term used for a period of mild weather that often occurs in December before Christmas. Cake Linna is through folk tradition closely linked to Tomas Messe on 21 December. In earlier times, it was claimed that the cake linna was due all baking - all ovens caused mild weather. Today, this popular belief is abandoned, but the term "Kakelinna" is still used.
