Repost: Mini Vacuum Cleaners (Traditional Swedish Pastry) – Mini Dammsugare

Today is the Vaccum Cleaner Pastry day in Sweden! So here comes my best recipe again!


As strange as it might sound, these delicious small things are called vacuum cleaners in Swedish. It’s a traditional Swedish pastry, and it looks really cute. These were not hard to make, but, a little tricky and required some patients when it came to dipping the ends in chocolate. Other than that, they’re a no-bake treat (currently working with a broken oven). The traditional one’s are green, but the marsipan can be colored in any color you like. One important thing to notice is that the taste of these are very distinct, and not everyone likes them. Although, if you do, the combo of one of these and some coffee is hard to beat.

Recipe / Recept 

2 cups of sponge cake crumbles / 5 dl sockerkakssmulor

3.5 tbsp of soft butter / 50 g mjukt smör

2 large tbsp of cacao powder / 2 stora msk kako

a couple of drops of arrack essence or punch / några droppar arraksextrakt eller punsch

Marsipan / Marsipan

1 chocolate bar / 1 chokladkaka

1. Start by mixing butter, cake crumbs and arrack together. / Börja med att blanda smör, kaksmulor och arrakextrakt.

2. Mix in the cacao powder. / Blanda i kakaon.

3. Roll thin rolls of the dough. The thinner you roll the smaller the pastry. / Rulla tunna längder av degen, ju tunnare du rullar, ju mindre kan dammsugarna bli.

4. Put in the freezer. / Lägg i frysen.

5. Roll out the marsipan super thin. / Kavla ut marsipanen väldigt tunt.

6. Wrap the dough rolls in marsipan. / Rulla in degen i marsipan.

7. Cut in pieces. / Skär i bitar.

8. Put in the freezer again. / Lägg i frysen igen.

9. Melt the chocolate carefully by a water bath. / Smält chokladen med hjälp av ett vattenbad.

10. Dip the ends of the vacuum cleaners in chocolate. / Doppa ändarna i chokladen.

11. Let cool. / Låt svalna.

12. Keep in the fridge. / Förvaras i kylen.

13. Done! / Klart!


Gluten Free Almond Flour Blondies – Glutenfria Mandelmjöls Blondies


Ok, this is definitely one of the most delicious things I’ve eaten. I’ve never made blondies before because who doesn’t want all the chocolate one can have? Yet, I wanted to make something else than brownies and something else than chocolate, since I realize that is the most popular theme when it comes to baking here on the blog. So after some research I tried making these blondies, since it seemed to be the most popular recipe on -the internet-. I decreased the amount of brown sugar by accident, but they were still really sweet, and increased the amount of salt, because I love the sweet & salt flavor together. I also left out the white chocolate chips and the pecans, mostly because I didn’t have it at home. Although, THEY WERE SO SO GOOD. Honestly, they were very delicious. Although, I didn’t get the texture to become brownie like despite double time in the oven, so I would more so call it a blondie cake, nonetheless, you should make them too!
