I have baked a little for my children 🥯🍪💛

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

I’m enjoying my Easter holiday, and I’m using it to more and less what I had in mind too 😊.

I have been sleeping a lot, and I needed it. It was some very busy days on the phone before the Easter at my customer service agent job 🎧. That’s the way it is sometimes 😊. And I know it will be busy on the line after the Easter as well, so I need to “recharge” my batteries a bit 😊.

I have been working at my freelance work too during the Easter. But that’s a job where I can log in and out a bit like it suits me, so I can more and less choose when I want to work as long as there’s work to do. And it’s has been some work to do the lasts days, and that’s good 😊.

And I have been baking to my children,- my oldest and my youngest. The one in the middle is in Norway so it’s a bit difficult to bake something to him. But maybe my daughter is travelling to Norway next month, and then she can bring something from me to my son in the middle 🥰.

Homemade cinnamon buns 😊

I like to bake, and I like to help my kids with fill up their freezer a bit. And of course I bake something my kids like to eat too😊. So at my first baking day it’s became homemade cinnamon buns 😊.

I know my oldest son is working a lots of nights at the moment, and I know he can be a bit lazy with the food then. So then it became some pizza whrils too from mammi 🍕.

Homemade pizza whrils 🍕

And then it also became some homemade sweet cookies with a lots of calories. Something that’s good for both of my kids (actually all three, but still one is in Norway 😊) and me. I have that opinion that it’s better to have a couple of kilos to much on the body then to less. Something that it’s a bit difficult for both my children and me. We are obviously just created to be a natural thin, but still we can “help the nature” a tiny bit and as good as we can with some good and homemade food with a touch of magic calories for our bodies now and then 😊.

Homemade American cookies 🍪

It was actually one of my students when I was a teacher for bakery and conditioner many years ago that teached me this recipe for the American cookies 🍪.

And to the end the cookies that takes longest time to back- Sara Bernard cookies 🍪

Normally I bake Sara Bernard cookies to Christmas, but this Christmas became and was a bit different then “usual”,- so I made them to the Easter instead 😊.

You will find all the Norwegian recipes under the category for “Homemade Norwegian food and recipes” , if you are interested to try to bake some of my “baked goods” 😊. I have made and shared this before 😊.

My mam did this to me,- baked different kind of “baked goods ” when I was living in Norway so I could have in my freezer 😊. And I really presage it. It made busy days with three children so much easier for me 🥰. My children don’t have their own children yet, but I know they have some busy days at work. And if I can make their days a bit easier with some homemade food and “baked goods” in their freezer, I do it with love and pleasure ❤.

If you want to try some of my “baked goods” I have shared with you today I hope you will enjoy it. I think it’s tasty and delicious, but we all like different things 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

My “baked goods” this Easter to my children so they can have some homemade and tasty food in their freezer for busy days 🥰

I have been baking a bit to my children during the last Easter days, so they can have some Norwegian homemade and tasty food in their freezer for busy days 🍪🍕. I like to bake, and it’s in general nice to have something homemade and baked to also offer friends and guests when they are dropping by 🥰.

Waffles for lunch with cheese and ham in the batter- mmm… tasty 😊🥞

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As some of you know one of my best friend, Natasja, visit me after work this week, and I wanted to give her some tasty homemade Norwegian food with a “touch” of “the lunch- feeling”. Then it became waffles with cheese and ham in the batter/ mixture 🧀🥓.

It’s tasty, delicious and fill up your stomach 😊. And well worth to try. This is something you easy can bring to work in your lunch box too, or just enjoy at your home office, or together with family and friends 🥰.

I actually made two waffles batter/ mixture. One ordinary and one with ham and cheese. Just in case Natasja didn’t like my “lunch waffles” with ham and cheese 😊. And Norwegian homemade waffles are in general not wrong, and in general “a safe winner” 😊.

My ordinary Norwegian waffle recipe: ( around 10 “waffles plates”) 🥞🥓🧀

2 eggs and 1 dl water – whisk together.  4 tablespoons sugar, 3 dl wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 dl sour cream, 100 g melted butter.  Mix everything together into a fine and rich mixture. ( I actually also did have a tiny bit pepper and oregano in the mixture- just to spice the waffles up a bit.)

Then mix in 150 g ham, cut into pieces, and 200 g grated cheese.

Spread a little butter on the waffle iron and fry the waffles golden.  Eat and enjoy 🥞.

You can also put the waffle batter in the fridge for a while.  Sometimes I make waffles once the waffle batter is ready.  Other times I make the waffle batter the day before and leave it in the fridge to the next day.  I think the waffles taste just as good anyway, – while others think the waffles are best after the batter has stuck in the fridge.  But as you know – the taste is like the butt, it is divided 😊.

To the ordinary waffles I did served different jams, butter, sugar and cinnamon 🧂.

To the waffles with the jam and cheese I did served a mix of onion and paprika mixed together with Greek yogurt, homemade garlic dressing, potato salad and tomatoes. I also had s bit Spanish omelette, just in case 🥘.

Norwegian homemade waffles spiced up with ham and cheese in the batter 🧀🥓.

The waffles with ham and cheese was not to bad, they was in their own way tasty, and like I mention, good to use as lunch, special together with something else like a creamy cheese or potato salad or maybe boiled eggs. But I need to admit that the ordinary and original Norwegian recipe for homemade waffles is the best. And Natasja was agree with me in that case 😊.

It was the first time Natasja actually tasted homemade Norwegian waffles, and just to make it a bit extra cozy and create a nice atmosphere I took out the waffle iron into the patio and fried the waffles outside in the lovely Springsun.  Fresher waffles than that I do not think it is possible to get 😊🥞. And the best thing, Natasja actually did like the taste of homemade Norwegian waffles 😊.

In general I like to try my best to create a nice and cozy atmosphere around me, and special when I have guests. For me it’s my way to show that I really presage my guests, their company and the time they choose to use together with me, and I want them to fell welcome too 🥰.

So when Natasja came to visit me we had a lovely time outside in the sun, made waffles outside, drank tea and had some very value conversations as well as good laughs 😊. A nice afternoon in very good company, like a kind of “refill” of energy 😊. Something that’s necessary,- and I really hope you have some great friends that give you a “refill” of energy now and then 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡.

See you soon 😊

Homemade Norwegian waffles, outside in my patio in the sun together with one of my best friends 😊.

I like to try out new things, and this time I did try to mix ham and cheese into the waffle batter/ mixture 🥞. It tasted good, a kind of great as lunch together with something else. But,- to be honest, my original and ordinary homemade Norwegian waffles without cheese and ham inside is still the best 😊. But the best thing with this waffles afternoon was the company 😊🥀.

A classic, traditional and simple breakfast, lunch and dessert “in one” 🍞🥞

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

“Arme Riddere” is the Norwegian name and a Norwegian variant of the French “Pain Perdu”, and the German “Arme Ritter”, and the swedish “Fattige Riddare”, and the English “French Toast”, and also the Spanish “Torrija” 😊. It’s a bit like “dear child have many names” 😊. And that’s not strange at all,- because this kind of dish is so easy to make, so tasty, and can be made with different accessories and in different ways, even with slightly different ingredients in too.

So I think many people know this classic, simple, traditional and tasty breakfast, lunch and dessert 😊. Because this dish can actually been used as all three. Or at least we, me and my daughter, eat it to breakfast sometimes, and lunch other times. Sometimes also as a easy meal in between or even as an tasty dessert after dinner 🥞.

My Norwegian recipe for this easy and delicious little meal is:

6 slices loff (light bread), 2 eggs, 2 s sugar, 2 dl milk, 0.5 tsp cardamom, 1 tsp cable, and 1 s for frying.  (and I also have 1 tbsp with honey in the mixture).

Lightly beat eggs together with sugar, milk, honey and spices.  Pour the mixture into a dish.  2. Place the bread slices in the batter and let them soak through the liquid.  3. Take up the slices of bread and fry them with a little butter in the baking pan over medium-high heat.  Bake golden brown on both sides.  Placed on barrels.

The fried slices of bread can be served as is, or with jam, whipped cream and berries 🍓🍒.

This recipe with 6 slices of bread is enough for me and my daughter. We eat very easy 3 slices each 😊.

Like I mention, sometimes we have “arme riddere” for breakfast, other times to lunch. Sometimes as a snacks between two meal, or as an dessert after dinner 🥞.

It’s so easy to make, and it doesn’t take very long time either. It’s tasty and sweet, but at the same not to sweet.

I hope you will enjoy this delicious little dish as much as we do. A tiny little dish that can be used as both breakfast and lunch, as well as snacks between two meals, or a nice and easy dessert😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

My tasty “arme riddere” breakfast with fresh blueberries 😚.

I hope you will enjoy this delicious little dish as much as we do. A tiny little dish that can be used as both breakfast and lunch, as well as snacks between two meals, or a nice and easy dessert😊. Enjoy 🥰.

How about a Norwegian homemade confectionery cake for the New Year celebration? 🎂🎆

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine and you 🧡

The New Years evening and celebration is just around the corner, and probably there’s some of us that really want to celebrate that 2020 is over?🎆 Why not celebrate it with a delicious, sweet, and tasty Norwegian homemade confectionery cake? Or maybe it is more like a dessert- and coffee cake? 😊

It hasn’t been a easy year for many people around in the world, but still we are allowed to celebrate. In general there’s something good to celebrate, even when the days can feel and be a bit dark and heavy.

This year I did made a Norwegian confectionery cake for Christmas. It’s actually 10 years since last time I did made this cake, even it’s one of my favourite cakes 😊. It’s not even a cake that’s difficult to make, or with expensive ingredients, but in general it was just me that eat this cake when my children was younger. I also remember my friends called my “DelfiaLaila” because I eat this cake “all the time” during the Christmas- time. I even had a piece or two with me at work in my lunch box 😅.

This year, this Christmas I felt for to “spoil” myself a bit, so I made me a Norwegian confectionery cake, Delfiakake 🥰. Maybe I’m going to eat it all up totally alone, but that’s fine for me 😊. I don’t need to share it with anyone 🙂. But I can at least share my Norwegian recipe with you 😊. And maybe you too want to spoil your self a bit, or just share the cake together with your New Year guests?

I haven’t found the butter we use in the cake here in Spain. Probably it is in one store I haven’t checked out yet, but I found out that I could try to use coconut oil instead. And to be honest,- it was perfect with coconut oil 😊. Coconut oil is liquid above 26 degrees and as a solid mass below 26 degrees.  So now during the wintertime here in Spain it’s not very much over 26 degrees at the moment and the coconut oil “behave” excellent for this cake 🌡.

The cake is called “Delfiakake” in Norwegian. But I’m actually not sure what translation I can use in English. So I just choose to call it a Norwegian homemade confectionery cake, or dessert- and coffee cake 🎂. It’s called this because the butter we use are called “delfiafett”.

The recipe for Norwegian homemade confectionery cake:

You need : 4 tablespoons strong coffee, 250 g Delfiafett (or coconut oil), 250 g cooking chocolate (I usually 50- 50 dark and light chocolate), 2 eggs, 0, 50 g sweet biscuits (eg Marie biscuits), 200 g marzipan,  200 gr geletopper, 200 gr licorice.

You do: Make strong coffee 2. Put Delfiafett (coconut oil) in a saucepan over low heat until it melts.  3. Add chocolate and let it melt with the oil.  Stir a little so that everything is mixed together.  Set aside and allow the mixture to cool.  4. Beat eggs and sugar until eggy.  5. Stir the melted mixture into the egg mixture.  A little at a time.  The chocolate mass should be shiny and tough when everything is whipped together.  6. Add 4 tablespoons of coffee, and mix well.  7. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.  Put the chocolate mass in the bottom.  Then add layers of chocolate with biscuits, marzipan, jelly tops and licorice to the mold.  Have the rest of the chocolate mass on top.  8 Allow to cool and store cool.

And vola- enjoy the cake, this one of my favourite Norwegian homemade confectionery cake 🥰. Tasty and very sweet, and yes, a kind of calorie “bomb” just so you know 😊.

We also are making something called “puffed rice tops” as Christmas sweets for the Christmas- time in Norway. You more and less use the same recipe as for the “Delfiakake”, but instead of the marzipan, biscuits, jelly tops and licorice we use puffed rice in the mixture.  Then we put about a tablespoon of the mixture in the muffin holders.  And put all the little cakes to cool.

I remember the first I should make this puffet rice tops. I was 20 years old, was living in Oslo and working at a hospital there. And pregnant with my first child (so maybe my mind was somewhere else?😅) After I had mixed it all together and made around 20- 30 muffin- holders with the mixture I actually did put them all into the oven, and turn it on around 200 degrees 😳.

Then I called my mam, and asked her if the eggs and sugar really needed to be completely stiff as egg yolk before I mixed it together. My mam said no, and asked my why I wonder. And I told her that all my cakes, or chocolate puffet rice tops was floated all over the oven.  She started laughing and asked if I baked the cakes.  Yes, I said.  She further asked if it said what degrees the recipe told my that I should fry them on.  No, one I said, but I thought they had forgotten to write it, the degrees, in the recipe, so I fry them at 200 degrees. That’s often the general degrees e use when we bake something in the oven.

Well,- you can say I had s bit of a work to clean that oven after “baking” the puffet rice tops 😅.

And believe it if not. The year after I did manage to do exactly the same with the Delfia cake too 😳 😅. Maybe I was to busy to be a mammi for my oldest son so I didn’t read the recipe to well? But one thing was for sure, the Delfia cake never became finish in the oven 😅. And I didn’t called my mom either, because I red the recipe one more time after a while, and I couldn’t find anything about any degrees in the oven. Anyway,- at least this time it was not so much to clean up. The cake was just never ever finish 😅.

But after this two “happenings” I have “learn” my “lesson” and never put cakes like this in the oven again 😊. Just a tiny reminder to you too 😊.

I hope you will enjoy this tasty and very sweet homemade Norwegian confectionery cake. Maybe share some with your family and friends on the New Year celebration? 🎆 Or just spoil your self a bit? 😊 …. and ps- but the cake in the cooler, not in the oven on 200 degrees 😉.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

A sweet taste of Norwegian late summer 🌞, and I did not share with anyone 😅

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡

I remember when I was a child my mam, and my grandmother too, made a delicious dessert made from currants. I did try to make it myself to my children too, but for some reason they didn’t like this dessert as much as I did, and still does,- so I haven’t made it very much.

An other thing,- there’s not so much currants here in the area, at least I haven’t found to much, and the ones I have found has been a bit expensive.

But my mammi did send me a photo one day when she was making this dessert, and I did decided that I wanted to try to make one too 😊.

My plan was actually to make the dessert to “my fling”. I had promise homemade mushroom soup, and thought I could “top it all” with this delicious homemade dessert then 😅.

Like I mention, – the dessert is made from currants,- its fresh and sweet at the same time, and I really like it a lot. It’s not even difficult to make, or “expensive”,- except from the a bit expensive currants here in South of Spain 🍒.

The dessert is called “Trollkrem” in Norwegian,- and if I try to translate it into English it will be maybe “Troll cream”? Maybe the trolls in Norway did love this dessert too, or maybe you became a bit like a troll after eating it? 😅

Well,- I did feel a tiny bit like a troll after making it,- but okay,- maybe I’m allowed to be a tiny little troll now and then? 😊

The recipe for the Norwegian dessert, – Troll cream (for two persons):

1 large cup of currants (cleaned).  1 slightly smaller cup of sugar.  1 egg yolk.

Whisk everything together to a stiff cream / mousse.  Can be cooled slightly in the refrigerator if you wish.  Can also be served with cold custard.

And if the cream does not become stiff and like a mousse it may be because the currants are too ripe.  Then you can try whisking in another egg yolk into the cream.

How big the cup should be? I did use a normal tea cup 🍵.

Anyway,- the dessert is served. A tasty, fresh and sweet dessert that tast like late Norwegian summer 🌞.

I did mention that I became like a tiny little troll after making this Trollkrem,- and that’s because I didn’t share it with anyone 😅. I did eat up all by myself. I didn’t served any dessert to the mushroom soup 😅. And I enjoyed every tiny little spoon with no regrets totally alone 😊. Snd I didn’t tell anyone either that I had made “Trollkrem”,- I just kept it all for myself 😊. So it didn’t became any homemade dessert after the homemade mushroom soup 😅. I didn’t “top it all”, instead I did eat it all 😊.

But maybe I try to make a new one another day, and even share with someone? 😊

I hope you will enjoy this dessert as much as I do,- but hopefully you will share a bit more then I did 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon, – I hope 😊
