Chocolate pie with Oreo crust

I love Oreos! I mean, don’t we all?

And if there’s something I love more than Oreos, it would be Oreos used in cakes! I’ve made quite a few cake recipes with Oreos, for example cupcakes, milkshakes and of course also cheesecakes.
But here I used Oreos in a new way; in a chocolate pie.

And guess what? It’s exactly as delicious as you’d might imagine! Continue reading

Sarah Bernhardt chocolate cakes

This is a cake that I deeply truly love! For some reason I just haven’t really tried baking it yet (well that’s a lie – I made them once in a licorice version, but I’ve never made the original Sarah Bernhardt).

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.

Chocolate Pecan Pie

SPONSORED

Hi weekend bakers!

There’s this very special pie that I’ve been wanting to bake for many many years now. Why I haven’t baked it until now is a mystery. I’ve actually even shopped for the ingredients several times, but I always ended up using them for something else before I came to baking the pie.

The pie I’m talking about is a chocolate pecan pie Continue reading
