Love Mums – Kärleksmums


This type of cake reminds me of when I was little, since it was one of the first things my friends and I learned how to make! It’s still as good today, and is very easy to make, the glaze makes the cake crazy moist, and gives it a great coffee taste. If you don’t like coffee, the coffee can be left out!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Rose Water Frosting – Chokladcupcakes med Rosenvatten Frosting


I’ve realized over the past days working through my recipe index how my baking has changed, partly because after a while, all your traditional go to bakes has been uploaded, and you’re challenged to try new things. This led me to buy some rose water extract on bottle. I had never before used rose water up until a couple of days ago – but I’m already a fan. If you put it in cakes, they become extremely moist and soft (keep your eye’s out for a recipe coming soon), and the flavor is just something new and different. The cupcakes I used a regular chocolate cupcake recipe for, and the frosting recipe I found on this blog, although I added some more cream and rose water to mine, since I believed it was a little too thick before. Sprinkled with silver sprinkles and glittering stars, these would be perfect in a fairy tale.

Homemade Oreos – Hemgjorda Oreos


This reminds me of my best friend Jewelle! She made, a couple of years ago, homemade oreos, and I remember how impressed I was. Yet, oreo cookies has never been a thing in my life, and I think that the oreos that you buy have a quite bland taste, even though that can be desirable from time to time! These oreos are much more chocolaty and tastes more like real chocolate cookies! They are easy to make, but I made a few adjustments to how they “should” be made. Mine are not of a perfect round shape. Why? Because I was way to impatient to chill the dough enough to be able to cut out rounds. I rolled small balls and pressed them out with the palm of my hand instead! Enjoy!

Recipe / Recept 

1.3 cups cocoa powder / 3.1 dl kakao

1.5 cups of flour / 3.75 dl mjöl

0.5 tsp of salt / 0.5 tsk salt

8. Let cool. / Låt svalna.

10. Done! Store in the fridge. / Klart! Förvara i kylen!


Swedish FALUKORV with Mashed Potatoes – Gratinerad Falukorv med Potatismos


Ok, I’ve been pondering whether or not to post this recipe, mostly because Falukorv is unavailable in the US (it really is, I’ve tried so hard). Although, since this is my foodblog, I feel an urge to post this recipe because Falukorv is one of the very few things I can really crave when I’m not at home. It’s been one of my favorite dishes since I was a child (it’s not only one dish but multiple dishes you can make of it…). Falukorv is a Swedish sausage that comes from the north of Sweden that is half smoked, and I know many people compare it with the German Bologna sausage (don’t personally think it’s comparable, but, you know…). This dish I made when one of my closest friends Anna Meh came and visited Sweden, to let her experience a piece of my childhood. I was very impressed that she dared to try it, and liked it, since I’m not a fan of sausage in other countries. Nonetheless, here’s the recipe – if you ever get a chance to try… It’s amazing :).

Recipe / Recept

1 Falukorv / 1 Falukorv 

Big tomatoes / Stora tomater 

mustard of choice / valfri senap

cheese of choice (sharp cheddar is great) / valfri ost (stark cheddar är supergott)

potatoes / potatis 

milk / mjölk 

butter / smör

salt / salt 

white pepper / vitpeppar 


1.Preheat the oven to 400F. / Sätt ungen på 200 grader.

2. Slice the tomatoes thinly. / Skär tomaten i tunna skivor.

Easy & Delicious Chips & Caviar Snacks – Lätta & Goda Chips & Rom Snacks


It’s a little strange because here in the US “caviar” is such a delicacy, not to say it’s not a little “luxurious” in Sweden, but it’s not the same thing. These chips are perfect for a cocktail party or just as a nice weekend appetizer! Quick and easy to make, and something that any salt-lover will like! This recipe will go under a new category called “Phone Recipes” meaning that they are usually quicker, and photos are taken with my phone, we’ll see how it turns out, let me know what you think!

What you need: / Du behöver:

Lightly salted chips / Lättsaltade lantchips 

1 small red onion / 1 liten rödlök 

sour cream / creme fraiche 

caviar / rom 

fresh dill / färsk dill 

1.Chop the onion in small, small pieces. / Finhacka löken.

2. Spread out the chips. / Sprid ut chipsen.

3. Put a little bit of sour cream, followed by onion and caviar on them. / Lägg på lite creme fraiche, lök och rom.

4. Top with dill. / Toppa med dill.

5. Done! / Klart!


Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (!!!) – Havregryn & Chocolate Chips Kakor (!!!)


I feel like I start most of my posts with “I love…” and then whatever I’ve baked follows. And I must say that I really do like a lot of the things I make (that’s why I make them) which is a reason for the very few pies here on the blog… Nonetheless, cookies I think could be a hit or miss, since a really good, chewy chocolaty-chunky chocolate chip cookies can be one of the most delicious things ever. Although, there are quite frequently moments where the cookies are dry, hard and crunchy, which is why I like the texture of oatmeal raisin cookies. Despite this I have come to be a sucker for chocolate, so why not combine the best of two worlds? These cookies are a little crispy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside – clearly won’t disappoint.


Recept / Recipe (Can be halved if you don’t want plenty some of cookies)

1 cup of butter / 225 g smör 

0.75 cups of brown sugar / 1.8 dl muscavado socker

Easy & Pretty Carrot Sponge Cake – Lätt och Vacker Morots Sockerkaka


I love carrot cake! Always have and, probably, always will. Although, I always get stuck while making it just because the normal recipe requires a lot of canola oil, which I never seem to have at home. Therefore, this version is a little easier, and made out of a normal sponge cake. I even used the classic mold with the hole in the middle and just filled it with a sunflower for the pretty look of it! Nonetheless, this cake won’t disappoint any of you carrot-cake-lovers. It’s just as delicious.

Delicious Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies – Supergoda Choklad & Pistage Snittar


Chocolate “cuts” as we call them in Sweden (just because you cut them side-wise even though you bake them as “one” dough) are a true classic. Just as the sesame syrup cookies, they are easy to make and a true crowd pleaser. In general, we sprinkle them with pearl sugar, but this time, I chose to use both pearl sugar and pistachios, just to spice it up (and, why settle with one when you could have both?). Recipe as follows;

2 cups of flour / 5 dl mjöl 


1 egg / 1 ägg

pearl sugar / pärlsocker 

pistachios / pistagenötter 

1.Set the oven at 400 F. / Sätt ugnen på 200 grader.

2. Mix all the ingredients for the cookies together. / blanda alla ingredienser till kakorna.

3. Chop the nuts. / Hacka nötterna.
