When in the mood for baking something very quixk yet extra delicious, these chocolate chip cookies with pistachio nuts are just the thing!

I’ve baked cookies many many times before, but this time I made them in a new version with chocolate chips and pistachios. I think pistachios must be my all time favorite nut. And I love the subtle touch of dotted green they bring to the cookies. Continue reading

Swedish semlor

These beautiful small cardamum buns filled with whipped cream and marcipan are by far one of my favorite traditional sweets. They’re originally Swedish, but here in Denmark I think it’s safe to say that we’ve fallen in love with them perhaps just as much as the Swedes, and therefore we’re starting to see them pop up here and there in the bakeries – especially in Copenhagen.

Saffron Lucia Buns

13th of December = Lucia Day!

It’s cupcake time, yaaay!! Some would even call it their favorite time (myself included)! It’s been quite a while since a last posted a cupcake post here on the blog, so I thought it was about time.

I’ve baked these chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel filling before, and since they were sooo extremely good I immidiately knew I wanted to bake them again when I had guests coming over this weekend. These cupcakes consist of a delicious chocolate muffin filled with salted caramel and topped with an intens dark chocolate frosting. This frosting is a new version I hadn’t tried before, but it turned out pretty well I must say, and therefore I decided to share the recipe with you.

And oh, it’s about time I include you guys in a little secret I’ve been keeping for quite a few months now…
