If there is something I LOVE it’s chocolate. So when I saw this amazing three-ingredient recipe that’s delicious, insanely easy to make and healthy, I had to make it. Hope you enjoy it! I think it would be really delicious … Continue reading
When the weather is like ours was yesterday, broken (lol), my mom and I thought; “why not bake a million things today and have grandma over as well?” So we did! We picked up the ingredients we needed, picked up my grandmother and then we (I) started cooking. Funny how a ‘we’ always turns into ‘I’ or ‘you’. Oh well it’s probably for the best. I’m known to become slightly (a lot) dictatorial when I cook.
We (I) made pineapple cupcakes, sausage rolls, marzipan and apple rolls, cinnamon rolls and buns with raisins. It took about 3 hours and holy shit we ended up with so much food. The cinnamon rolls are my favorites, they are so delicious! The best part is that you can use the same batter for the buns as well as the cinnamon rolls so it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share them with you!
As the recipe is a basic batter you can use it for lots of things like sausage rolls, small pizza buns, use it for home made burgers or add chocolate, raisin, cinnamon or whatever you feel like. The sky is the limit!
You need (for about 20 pcs)
500 grams wheat/white flour
75 grams of butter
50 grams of fresh yeast
About 2,5 dl/1 cup of milk (lukewarm)
1 tbsp (25 grams) of sugar
1 tsp salt
How to do
1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk
2. Add the flour and the other ingredients. Important! If you want to add anything like chocolate or whatever you have to add it before you add the flour.
3. Mix in your kitchen aid for a couple of minutes or by hand until the dough is smooth and non sticky. (If very sticky add a tiny bit of flour)
4. Separate the dough into small buns and set them to rest for a couple of minutes. Working with the dough is easier if you have a little flour on the table and on your hands but be careful not to use too much or else the dough will become to dry.
5. Put on to a baking tray and cover them with a wet and clean cloth and put to side in a warm place until double the size and your oven has preheated to 220°C (428°F)
6. Brush the buns with whipped egg (gives them a nice color in the oven. You can use water instead if you like)
7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked and golden.
If you want to make cinnamon rolls
You need (if you like them very “wet” you can double up the ingredients)
100 grams of soft butter
100 grams of brown sugar
Cinnamon to your liking
How to do
Follow step 1, 2 and 3.
4. Roll out the batter to a big square (25 x 30 cm)
5. Make the cinnamon filling (remonce) by mixing the ingredients together.
6.Spread the filling all over the dough and roll it together like a roulade
7. Cut them into 1-2 cm thick slices
8. Brush the rolls with whipped egg (gives them a nice color in the oven. You can use water instead if you like)
9. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked and golden.
When cooled decorate them with frosting made by mixing icing sugar with a bit of water.
If you want to make sausage rolls
Ketchup (if you like)
How to do
Follow step 1, 2, and 3.
4. Make 3 larger balls and roll them out into circles.
5. Cut into about 6-8 triangles
6. Spread the ketchup on the triangles
7. Put half a sausage on the wider end of the triangle and roll it together
8. Let them rest and rise to double size for 20 minutes
9. Brush the rolls with whipped egg (gives them a nice color in the oven. You can use water instead if you like)
10. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked and golden.
If you have any requests for the other things I made or questions/comments in general
please just comment down below!
I know most of you have absolutely no idea what koldskål means and I don’t blame you.. my language is pretty damn weird! Anyway I have searched the internet high and low to find a translation just to find out there isn’t any. The best I could come up with is the direct translate which is cold bowl. Lol.
But hey! Now you know a word in Danish I guarantee you your friends don’t know.
This dish is a very traditional summer dish in Denmark and you can eat it anytime during the day. People mostly have it as dessert but in my family we eat it whenever we get the chance.
Ingredients (for 4 people)
2 liters of buttermilk
1 fresh vanilla pod
2-3 tbs sugar (or a sugar/sweetener alternative, your choice)
Fresh or semi frozen berries
Kammerjunkere (a kind of biscuit) – for an alternative look further down
Mix the buttermilk with zest of the lemon, scraped vanilla seeds, the whole pod and sugar.
Adjust the flavor to your taste with sugar and lemon juice. I like it when it’s more to the lemony side and not too sweet especially because we mostly eat it as dinner and therefore I don’t want it too sweet.
When mixed and you’re happy with the taste put it in the fridge for at least an hour till it’s really nice and cold.
NOW HERE IS THE FUN PART! You can add any type of fruit you want on top and make it even more summerly and not to mention healthy.
We always always always add raisins and if we have fresh raspberries or strawberries those too.
Another essential is kammerjunkere. They are local dry, crispy biscuits that just give that good crunch. As I know kammerjunkere is a Danish ingredient and not many other countries produce these little beauties I have an alternative.
You need for 4 people
4-6 slices of rye bread (preferably thick slices)
About 25 grams of butter (adjust to the amount of bread and to your liking)
Cut the bread into quite rustic bites
Melt the butter on high heat
When caramelized saute the bread for a couple of minutes
You want a crunchy but not a hard texture. You can add honey too if you like it to be sweet and sticky. Then you just saute the bread first in a little bit of butter for a couple of minutes and then add honey at the end.
ENJOY! Let me know in the comments what you think
