First a bit of news to my Danish readers: I’m hosting another Macaron Workshop on 4 November. Interested? Read more here! Happy Cinnamon Bun Day! I’m just checking in briefly, as we’re en route to London; The first city Mikkel and I visited together, and now we can’t wait to show it to August. But, I couldn’t let an opportunity to share the recipe for these soft cinnamon rolls spiced with nutty brown butter along with a whisky glaze go…

White Chocolate & Geranium Ice Cream

September 28, 2017

A big truck just parked outside our house. Its trailer is stocked with our new windows and doors shared between four carefully packed pallets. Sitting there they don’t look like much, but we’ve ordered enough to replace every outer door and window in our yellow-brick villa from 1935. Ever since we saw the house for the first time it has been our dream to bring it back to its original architectural style. Now, six months later, the beautiful, white small-paned…

Blackberry & Dark Chocolate Cremeux Tart

dark chocolate cremeux and blackberry tarts

Today I want to share a recipe for a blackberry and chocolate dessert I’m quite obsessed about. It is made from a classic tart crust with a rye twist, filled with a creamy dark chocolate crème, and topped with juicy blackberries from our garden. The chocolate crème’s fancy French name is cremeux, but don’t be scared; It’s actually really easy to make – especially if you have a cooking thermometer at hand. But before we jump to the recipe, I…

Yes, it must be Summer. So, today I present to you my…

Mother’s Day Rhubarb Meringue Cupcakes

May 11, 2017

(Danish translation below) This year’s Mother’s Day will be my second as a mother. Last year August was only a baby, we had just returned from an awesome road trip around California, and I had just watched him crawl for the first time. One year later the whirlwind of worries and insecurity, which I’ve learned is inevitably linked with being a first-time mum, has almost settled. I’ve watched him grow into toddler-August and he has just spoken his first word;…

Coffee, Smoke & Whiskey Layer Cake

March 8, 2017

Some ten years ago I met a man on a hot Summer day in a whirlwind of music festival dust. He wore worn out Chuck Taylor All Stars and a crooked smile, and lured with the promise of cold beers and good laughs. We went to a concert together later that night, and to this day I still can’t stop smiling whenever a song from that concert is played on the radio. To me, that’s the sound of young love.…
