IMG_1163-001

I’ve always loved ice cream more than any other dessert, regardless if it’s winter and minus 20 degrees celsius outside or a hot summer day. This ice cream is so simple to make, contains no eggs, is absolutely delicious and will be perfect for summer! I’ll definitely be trying this recipe as a base for other sorbets like cherry, rhubarb or raspberry! Here’s what you need: Continue reading

I’m still alive!

Hi everyone,

I’m just stopping by quickly to say that I’m sorry it’s been so quiet in here lately! I’ve had so much to do in school that I just haven’t had the time or energy to write anything… :( I have done some delicious baking though! I’ve baked the most amazing vanilla buns, chocolate cookies with buttercream filling and cranberry- and pistachio biscotti and I’m excited to share the recipes with you! I promise to post at least one of them in the coming week! :)

Recipe – “semlor”

semlor

I made these traditional Swedish buns – semlor – last week. I’ve never really been a fan of them but have dutyfully eaten one each year anyway ;) But this year I found a FABULOUS recipe by Swedish baker Roy Fares and WOW! The buns were so soft and fluffy, the almond filling was perfectly sweet with a hint of cardamom and to top if all off – some delicious fresh whipped cream.  Continue reading

Recipe – raspberry and blueberry tart

IMG_9664-001

This pie didn’t turn out quite the way I planned. The flavors were great, but, well, the custard turned out more like sauce than custard.. ;) We can’t always succeed, now can we? (scroll to the bottom of this post to see how beautiful it looked once cut into ;) ) Continue reading

Tutorial – camellia flower

IMG_9539-001

It’s been quite some time since I posted a flower tutorial so it really is about time! ;) I posted some pictures of this camellia flower yesterday and now I’ve put together a tutorial for it!

This flower was actually quite tricky since you want the petals to only touch each other at the base to give it a realistic look. So you probably need some gumpaste flower making experience or it will be quite hard.. But here’s the tutorial! Continue reading

Recipe – spiced apple and walnut muffins

IMG_9205-001

I baked these lovely muffins today! I used this recipe as a base but substituted some of the sugar for brown sugar, added some walnuts for texture and flavor and added chai tea. I think they turned out great; they were deliciously moist and not too sweet. They are topped with oat crumble for some extra crunch. :) Continue reading

Recipe – the best chocolate chip cookies EVER!

IMG_8973

Alright, maybe that title was a little bold, but these cookies… I mean, where do I even begin to describe them? They are everything I want from a really good chocolate chip cookie! The edges are super crispy, the center a little chewy but not soft, it has a perfect amount of chocolate flavor and a touch of delicious roasted hazelnuts. I had difficulties taking pictures of these cookies because I just wanted to shove them all in my mouth! ;) Continue reading
