Swedish Cinnamon & Cardamom Kanelbullar

Traditional Swedish buttery pastry filled with Cinnamon & Cardamom filling. Anytime I am in Sweden, Kanelbullar is a must. These delicious pastries baked on every corner and smelling streets away and are a Swedish staple eaten for breakfast and as a part of a daily Fika. Fika in Sweden is a kind of ritual, enjoyed…

Cocoa Wreath from Leavened Dough

My biggest struggle in writing this recipe was how to name it properly. Cocoa Wreath or perhaps Bundt Babka, or maybe a Kaisergugelhupf? Well, the truth is that my wreath is a bit of everything. This dough is very similar to one I make for Babka but shaped into a Wreath and baked in a…

Grandma’s Doughnuts

Doughnuts soft and fluffy like a cloud, filled with most delicious homemade fillings. Crunchy, fluffy, creamy. Following my Grandma’s recipe and proving doughnuts for several hours to develop the right kind of flavor and texture – we could not even expect different than a perfect result. I took a twist on those traditional Slovak doughnuts…

Orange & Olive Oil Muffins

Sweet and tangy. Simple yet sophisticated – Sunday morning & Friday night. That was just a few words that described those refreshing (and pretty) summer muffins that are, straightforward – enjoyed more by adults than kids. Strong flavor and aftertaste of olive oil is what makes them insanely delicious, irresistible, and kind of adult-ish. Your…

Carrot Pulp Cake

Flummery with a Fruit Sauce

A great dessert with a weird-sounding name will surprise you with a great taste, fast preparation and minimum ingredients needed. As at the moment we are limited with a variety of ingredients, semolina, milk or fruits can be interchanged for anything you have at home right now. My flummery recipe is made with semolina –…

Chocolate Mousse with Berries Puree

Ready in 15 minutes and so delicious. It’s creamy&rich and refreshing at the same time. A great dessert for days like these, when we should track how much sugar we intake more than usual – as we don’t move too much during this lockdown. As always use what you have, if you don’t have berries,…

Homemade Ice-cream (without condensed-milk and ice-cream machine)

Before coming out with this recipe, I tried a bunch of ice-cream recipes available on the internet. Most of them call for a combination of heavy (whipping) cream and condensed milk in an approximate ratio of 50:50. A great quality of condensed milk is that it makes ice-cream very creamy, soft and easy-to-scoop. Ice-cream made with…
