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!
My mom calls this Donald Duck cake, but it is better known as Pinocchio cake. I do not know what Disney characters have to do with it, but it is a popular cake in Sweden. It is the perfect summer cake; easy to make and serves many. The cake comprises a sponge topped with meringue and flaked almonds that is layered with whipped cream and fresh berries. Yum!!!
This is a Swedish delicacy not to be ignored, especially if you make your own cheese. Promise me to never to throw away whey again!! It has a complex, caramel flavor, that some people like to enhance with a little vanilla. It is not only a popular sandwich spread, but is widely used as a seasoning for stews, sauces and even desserts.
A deliciously cool and light dessert for hot summer days! And such a rare dish that most Swedes will never have heard about it. This milk pudding is made of silky smooth fresh cheese, served with half-and-half or whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. As the nickname Flygin implies (meaning to fly in, in Swedish), it simply slips away as it enters the mouth.
