Tomorrow my family and I are gonna leave little, boring and very cold Denmark and drive to the awesome, exciting but also cold Italy! We are going to indulge ourselves with a weeklong vacation on ski! So I’m finally going to try my grand new pink snowboard! I’m so much looking forward to this!!!
Well, the drive to Val Gardena  take about 13 boring hours in car, so I thought, what can make this drive more exciting?? Cookies of cause! So I search the internet I found this amazing recipe on this really nice blog (madenimitliv.dk ). I tasted a little sample (or 3 actually…) and they are great. Just like a basic chocolate cookie should taste! Soon I’m gonna eat many more while seeing an episode of Game of Thrones on our way (enjoying life!)

Ingrediens:

  • 250 g butter
  • 240 g sugar
  • 160 brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g oatmeal
  • 300 g wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 200 g hazelnuts
  • 200 g dark chocolate

Well, this is easy: Melt the butter and mix it with the other ingredients but the nuts and the chocolate. Chop the nuts and chocolate and add it to the rest. Divide the dough in small balls on the baking sheet and squeeze them a little flatter. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 200 degrease Celsius in 16 minutes. Cool down on a baking rack. Done! Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!

White chocolate and blueberry symphony.

Theres no such thing as one of Bree’s (Desperate Housewives) homemade pies and cakes. So when baking this white chocolate and blueberry symphony, Bree was in our minds the entire time. We wanted a cake with the sweet flavour of white chocolate, and the contrast of a sweet, yet fresh blueberry. So we created this following recipe.

What you need:

  • 410 g flour (14.5 oz)
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1.5 tsp. vanilla sugar (you can use vanilla extract as a substitute – 2 tsp)
  • 165 g sugar (5.8 oz)
  • 3 eggs
  • 90 g butter (3.2 oz)
  • 3.75 dl sour cream 9% fat (1.6 cups)
  • 120 g white chocolate (4.25 oz)
  • 3 dl blueberries frozen or fresh (1.25 oz)

Start by sifting the flour and baking powder. Put the salt, sugar and vanilla sugar in. Beat the eggs together in another bowl, and pour in the melted butter.

Whip the sour cream in and combine the two bowl mixtures. Chop the chocolate and put it in the mixture. Afterwards, whip in the blueberries.

Make sure to butter the cake tin before pouring in the batter.

Now heres the thing – we have made this before, but as a use for cupcakes. This means that they only need 25-30 minutes in the oven at 200°C (395°F). Making this as a cake, we weren’t sure how long it took to bake it.

Let it bake at 200°C (395°F) for about 45 minutes. Then turn down the heat to 150°C (300°F) and let it bake another 20 minutes. BUT make sure to check on it every 5-7 minutes, since we don’t have the exact time yet. If it’s still not done hereafter, just keep the baking going until the batter doesn’t stick to a needle, when feeling it.

Until next time – enjoy some cake!
