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 […]

Hello my beloved strawberry ice cream

Now then, it’s proper summer It’s been a magnificently stressful week. After having sold our flat (when our neighbours sold theirs, there were some additional bidders and we just couldn’t resist) and gone house hunting a few months ago, we realised that time was running out. While waiting for our dream house to turn up, […]

My best hot chocolate

Hot cocoa

Let’s talk hot chocolate for a few minutes. I think I said it before, but I’ll say it again – there is nothing wrong with prefab hot cocoa like Swiss Miss when you’re in places like Sälen or any other ski-resort, smeared with sunblock like a movie from the 80’s and air is filled with the […]

Mini cheesecake with raspberries

Cheesecake mini

Hooray for simple desserts that are anything but simple in taste!

Financiers with chocolate ganache

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

We’ve come a long, long way my baby During those lazy years as a student at the university, when most of my time was spent at a café with a cigarette, a latte and a piece of pastry the carrot cake and I had a pretty crappy relationship. We were a bit like a Nicholas […]

Banana cake – it doesn’t get any better than this

banana cake

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 […]
