Mini cheesecake with raspberries

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 because there were racks of lamb to marinate, ganaches to make and a mouthwatering collection of dryckjom (beverages) there was no time to sit down... Read More

Financiers with chocolate ganache

Well hi there my little french darling! A while ago I came across one for me completely new acquaintance – Financier with chocolate filling.

It was of course completely... Read More

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

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 with my lips wrapped around the opening of a juice tetra and realize that breakfast will be eaten at the office this day, too. I might grab some fruit... Read More

Clementine Curd – the curdest of the curd

On the toast, to fill the cupcakes with or why not a mini-pie with clementine curd? I’ve heard so much talk about curd that I started comparing it to the sourdough bread curse. It’s like once you’ve tried it, there is no turning back. Honestly I thought curd was a bit like a mayonnaise but with fruit in. How wrong I was. A curd is juice of fruit that you mix with eggs and sugar and then heat it in a water... Read More
