Swedish cardamom buns

Buns cardamom

Cinnamon Bun Day 2013 was celebrated without cinnamon but with the best bun. At one stage back in time I ended up – and don’t ask me how – in a discussion about which spice you absolutely couldn’t live without. The obvious choices came up, like vanilla, chili and someone who had had one Fernet [...]

Mini cheesecake with raspberries

Cheesecake mini

Hooray for simple desserts that are anything but simple in taste! This recipe was supposed to be posted in advance of Walpurgis Day (the day when 30.000 students in Uppsala parties like it was the end of days while the rest of us reminisce the good old days and have the first BBQ for the season), but [...]

Apple beignets

Beignets apple

Beignets, apple fritters, whatever you might call them – they’re wicked in any language How can I even begin to describe these little precious gems of friedness? Think of a small ball-shaped donut that you can eat lot’s of. Of course, the beignets origins from France and are probably what later evolved into donuts but the [...]

Financiers with chocolate ganache

Financiers recipe

Well hi there my little french darling! A while ago I came across one for me completely new acquaintance – Financier with chocolate filling. A classic financier is often made in a fine, almost leaf-like shape, and then garnished with a little flaked almonds. But that is the classic version and although it is nice [...]

Carrot cake – finally we’re friends

A shout-out to my friends vanilla and nutmeg for a job well done! I am the typical banana consumer – standing there in the store with fingers awkwardly on a bag of organic yellow treats and I always think That will be nice in the filmjölk tomorrow morning. The morning after I come to my senses [...]

The story about how phyllo ended an agonizing hunt for a dessert

phillo pistachios apple recipe

Expectations were high but time was running low Last night my old friend Urge For A Dessert was knocking on the door. I know I should have told him to go away, to force him out of the house and return to eat rolled oats with a pinch of cinnamon. It’s almost spring, the layers [...]

Macarons with blueberry ganache

Now why haven’t I tried this combination before? 2011 was the year when every Swedish kitchen geek were obliged to offer macarons as soon as there were to be fika served. Two pods Livanto right down the Nespresso machine and a small macaron on the saucer next served with the obligatory story about how you’ve [...]

Oatmeal cookies with raisins

oatmeal cookies with raisins

Simplicity at it’s finest When it comes to fika, few things beat a beautiful mushy, fresh pastry with a lot of details that you assemble and serve immediately. But you can not just have a fika with cupcakes, brownies and cakes – it’s too much. You need something simple, something with crunch, something that can’t [...]

Glaze frosting – the real deal

glaze frosting

Glazed frosting is to be boiled, not just mixed I get so tired when something simple isn’t allowed to be just simple, when it has to be so complicated to such an extent in order to sort the common man from the professionals. When you’re not allowed doing something because the result won’t be as [...]
