    Fresh cherry cake recipe

    The cherry season has definitely begun. It seems like cherries are a bit like coriander. Either you like it or you don’t. Cherry cake seems to be what unites the camp though. Hungarian heritage Cherries are one of the best things I know. I recently discovered a supermarket close to where I live. To my excitement, I discovered that they sell sour cherry juice. This brought me back to my childhood and the warm Hungarian summers. I used to eat a lot of fresh cherries. Of course, eat cherry cake. And drink cherry juice. Cherry flavours There are cherry trees in Sweden too, but somehow baked goods with cherries, cherry lemonade or cheery sherbet…

    Rhubarb cream with strawberries

    Rhubarb cream is one of those old Swedish desserts that were always homemade. I have added strawberries to my cream. Thick rhubarb and strawberry cream as dessert is hugely underestimated. The rhubarb marries really well with the strawberries. It’s like a summer day in a bowl. Flavour memories I ate a lot of rhubarb cream when I was a kid. My mum used to get the store bought for me and my brother. We loved it. Sugary thick cream. What’s not to like? Strawberry was my favourite. We are it with ice cold milk. I have only now realised how easy it is to make. And the rhubarb with the strawberry is such a marvellous flavour…

  • Piña colada cake

    Piña colada cake – summer in a cake

    Piña colada cake, it sounds exotic, doesn’t it? While not typically Scandinavian somehow it is. I think Piña colada is one of the first flavours I came in contact with. It was the first tropical drink I drank and I think it was the first bottle of alcohol I bought too. Needless to say, it’s a flavour that I hold very dear. Why the Piña colada cake? When the heat is on, my need for the Piña colada cake is on. Or anything containing that flavour really. I can sit in my garden feeling the warmth of the sun on my face, smell that special smell everything gets from the rays of the sun. And…

  • pineapple cake

    The best pineapple cake recipe

    Pineapple cake has to be one of my all-time favourites. This cake fills me with warm, fuzzy feelings. Especially when pineapple is combined with coconut. This tropical cake is hard to beat. My love for the tropical has to do with the fact that I have grown up in a cold non-exotic country. Although I was really lucky. My parents took us abroad for a couple of weeks every year. Somewhere around the Meddatarrianan. Therefore pineapples, palm trees, the sun and coconuts make me very happy. It’s addictive This cake started out as an experiment. I combined things I thought should taste good together. Like butter, quite a lot of it, sugar, coconut and pineapple.…

  • New York Cheesecake

    New York Cheesecake – a classic

    This classic New York Cheesecake is one of those desserts that taste like a piece of heaven and is equally pretty to look at. Almost like you don’t want to eat the New York cheesecake because it’s too pretty to look at. But only almost. It is a New York cheesecake after all.    Now, I won’t say it’s very simple to make because that would be a lie. It’s not complicated. However, it’s takes some time. This New York cheesecake is not the kind of cake you whip up in when you are pressed for time. It will be worth the time though.  Tips and Tricks to succeed There are some steps…

    Bakery style white chocolate raspberry muffins

    Bakery style white chocolate raspberry muffins with crumble on top, ever wondered how to make them? Me too! I see beautiful mouthwatering photos of muffins and I always wonder, how do people succeed with their muffins? It supposed to be one of those baking skills that you just have, however, let me tell you I didn’t. I have tried and failed so many times now. Which is good news for you, because then you don’t have to. I love it when they are full at the top since it’s my favourite part of the muffin. I love to break off the full top and devour it. But ever so often I get so…

  • vegan pineapple pie

    Vegan pineapple pie

    I have been cooking a lot of exotic food lately and thus the vegan pineapple pie was born. I love pineapple and to me, there’s nothing as exotic as a pineapple. It makes me think of sunny endless days, good vibes and sunkissed skin. The exact opposite of what’s going on in Sweden at the moment. Although to be fair, I have never seen a pineapple tree grow in Scandinavia.Anyway, wanted to make something to be reminded of everything that’s good in life. And at the moment the grocery shops are filled with beautiful pineapples. Therefore, I decided to make a vegan pineapple pie, to suit everyone’s needs. As you may have seen on…

    Petit choux Semla – the perfect cream puff

    The day of the Petit Choux semla has finally arrived! It’s the official Semmel day in Sweden today. I love these little creamy delights. When I was a kid, now no judgment, I was little. I ate so many of them I got really sick. I couldn’t eat a Semla for what it felt like ages. However, I now make up for lost time. I love traditional Semla too. But this little Petit choux Semla is pure perfection. It takes a lot less time to do than the traditional one. They are also perfect in size. Just a little mouthful. It’s difficult to eat only one, I promise. Petit choux are actually quite easy…
