Sötost (Sweet Cheese from Ragunda)

This is just a sweeter, more fragrant version of fresh cheese and a traditional accompaniment to Kams. But it is delicious on its own and a great sandwich spread, especially on tunnbröd (traditional flatbread from northern Sweden). The recipe is very similar to how I make my fresh cheese.

Fresh Cheese

It is so easy to make your own fresh cheese, which you can use for cheesecakes, sauces, or as a delicious sandwich spread. This recipe has only two ingredients, milk and buttermilk, and takes less than half an hour to make.

Swedish Crisp Waffles

Waffles are a very popular street food and coffee shop item in Sweden. Feast of the Annunciation, “Vårfrudagen” in Swedish, sounds a lot like “våffeldagen” and thus became Waffle Day! These are a lot crisper and lighter than most waffles and contain no egg.

American Pancakes

This recipe results in amazingly soft and fluffy pancakes. Serve them plain with maple syrup and bacon, or add your favorite berries or chocolate chips to the batter before cooking.

Swedish Pancakes / Crêpes

In Sweden we call them pancakes but they are in fact French crêpes and we usually serve them with whipped cream and jam. The best pancakes are cooked on a well-seasoned cast iron griddle, however a non-stick pan works too. My fail-proof method guarantees lump-free batter.
