Fat Tuesday Reminder

Time to fatten up before Lent! While the rest of the world celebrates Pancake Day, Swedes eat Semla, a delicacy that was recently featured in the movie “A Man Called Otto”.

Prinsesstårta (Swedish Princess Cake)

This traditional Swedish cake has its roots from the late 1800s. The name may have come from the finest, so called princess almonds, used at the time. The green marzipan version was first published by Jenny Åkerström, home economics teacher to the Swedish princesses in the early 1900s.

Sponge for Layered Cakes

Super light and airy – quick and easy to make. Useful for all layered cakes, just add your choice of fruit, jam, cream or frosting.

Raspberry Jam

Once you have made this, you will never want to eat store bought jam again! Contains only three ingredients and takes 15 minutes to make.

Almond Paste/Marzipan

In case you cannot find it in the store, this is a quick and easy recipe on how to make it yourself.

Dessert for the Holidays

Two of my favorite desserts for the upcoming holidays. I love pie, but sometimes it is nice with something lighter after a heavy dinner.

Perfect Carrot Cake

Since carrot cake is my favorite dessert, creating the perfect recipe was serious business. Moist, light and not too sweet, with warming spices and smooth cream cheese frosting. Trust me, this is the best carrot cake you will ever have!

Caramel Parfait with Cranberries

This is one of the simplest desserts you can make and it tastes like heaven! A creamy, rich, non-churn caramel “ice cream” with pops of tartness from the frozen berries. Made with just five ingredients in less than 10 minutes.
