What about some homemade Norwegian “lapper” for the Sunday breakfast? 🥞😊

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

When the children was living home I did made breakfast to them in the weekends, – and just not breakfast, but breakfast in bed 😊.

They did wake up a bit later then me,- so instead of waiting for them to wake up I did eat,- and then made something homemade pastries to them. It could be waffles or pancakes, muffins or the traditional Norwegian “lapper”. And a directly and not to correct translation in English for “lapper” will be “patches”. I prefer to call it “lapper” ,- and I’m not sure why this ones has got this name in Norwegian,- because in a way they can remind a bit about the big, thick American pancakes 🥞.

The recipe for Norwegian homemade “lapper” is:

3 cups flour , 1 cup sugar, 2 cups sour milk (or skim milk). I use mostly sour milk.  1 1/2 tsp baking soda, 3 eggs and margarine for frying. (And I also use 1 tsp vanilla sugar too).

Mix everything together and make a regular stir.  Use a big soup spoon to take the stir and fry “lapper” in a small frying pan.  Bake one and a piece at a time, such as when making pancakes.  The “lapper” will blow up a little.  Turn and fry golden on each side.  The number of “lapper” depends on how big you make them on the frying pan, and how much stir you have in the soup spoon.

It’s not very difficult to make and they tast good too 😊.

It’s just me for breakfast now at days, also to the breakfast. But,- Mathilde, my daughter, is probably moving back to me in May/ June this year, for some months. Someone else are going to take over the apartment she is renting now,- and it’s difficult to find a apartment with also a good price during the summertime here in South of Spain. Most people want to rent their apartments out for tourists this time of the year, and the prices is high. What we in general pays for month rent now it’s often the week- price during the summertime here in Spain 🌞.

So,- maybe I’m going to make and bake some more “lapper” for my daughter during this summer as I did for her last summer 😊. Or maybe for my summerguestes? 😊

Today it’s just “lapper” for me to breakfast,- and if there are someone left I’m probably going to share them with my kids. But at the moment they are just “made for me” 😊. Something I actually not do very often,- make and bake something just for me 🥞.

Do you want to try to bake some homemade Norwegian “lapper”? It’s not difficult at all,- just look after them so they don’t get burned,- but a golden, light brown colour instead 🥞.

I hope you will enjoy this homemade Norwegian “lapper” for your breakfast or maybe to your Sunday coffee or tea? 😊

On the “lapper” we normally use butter and some kind of jam, or the Norwegian “brunost”, or my children actually prefer butter, sugar and cinnamon. We all prefer different things and tastes, – so maybe you even prefer to have something else on the top of the “lapper” ,- like for example syrupy or honey 🥞. Any way, – I hope you will enjoy this “lapper” for your breakfast or your afternoon coffee or tea ☕ 🍵.

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

See you soon 😊.

It’s weekend and time for some cookies “snacks” 😍🍪

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

It’s already #weekend again,- and it’s always good to #bake or make something #special for the weekend. Create a bit “food”- different between the weeks and the weekend 😊.

This weekend I’m going to bake something called “American chocolates cookies”,-and I’m not sure if it is an #American recipe or #Norwegian one 😊.

I did get it from one of my #students when I was a #teacher in “Baking, conditioning and canapes- small food”,- in Norway many years ago 😊. It was actually my first teaching job 📚.

We did baked a lots of nice, #tasty and #delicious #cakes and #cookies. My students was very #creative, and really enjoyed the lessons 😊. Me too, by the day,- really #enjoyed to teach the students, be in the lessons and also bake recipes my students had with them.

This #recipe my student told me that her grandmam did made to her when she was a child,- and she really wanted to #share the recipe with both me and the other students 🍪. And both me and my children, and probably the rest of the students are very happy for that 🥰.

Because this “#Americanchocolatescookies” are just marvellous, #sweet and #soft 😊. My children really likes them,- and to be honest, – I actually think my children #enjoying that I’m sharing my different recipes with you too. That means they get a bit #homemade #food, cakes and cookies now at days 😅. More then before,- because I actually do bake and make the recipes I’m sharing with you 😊.

The recipe for “American chocolates cookies” ( it should or could be around 50 pieces)

350 g wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 t baking powder

200 g brown sugar

200 g plain white sugar

250 g soft butter

2 teaspoon vanilla sugar

2 eggs

350 g chopped chocolate

(200 g chopped walnuts / other types of nuts – but I don’t use nuts (my kids are not so fond of nuts) )

Stir the butter softly, add brown sugar, plain sugar and vanilla sugar. Stir well, feel free to use kitchen appliances if you have.

Add one egg at a time while stirring. Pour in flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Then chocolate (and possibly nuts). Stir well together.

Then cook the dough for cooling for about 30 minutes.

After cooling, roll about 3 cm sausages of the dough, which are then cut into slices and put on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.

Fry in the middle of the oven at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes.

After the cookies are a bit colder,- just try one or two, or even maybe four 🍪. Those cookies are so good and soft,- and still after the are cold they are soft.

I like that the cookies are soft 😊.

I know my children are looking forward to get one tiny box each with thise cookies,- and I’m going to keep one for myself too 😊.

I hope you will enjoy this cookies as much as we do 😊🍪.

Good luck with the baking,- and I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by #myblog today too 🧡

See you soon 😊.

#Homemade “American chocolates cookies” 🍪. Something #tasty and #sweet to the #weekend 😊. It’s a #recipe I did get from one of my #students back in #Norway many years ago,- and it’s really worth trying 🍪. Good luck with the #baking,- and #enjoy the results after 😊. This are “yammi” 😍.

What about a nice, tasty and homemade Carrot- cake for the weekend? 🥕🎂

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

I have #made #carrot-cake today,- and want to #share a bit with you too 🥕🎂.

I’m going to share with someone else as well,- so why not a bit to you too when “I’m in the run” 😊. I’m going to share a bit with my #neighbour as sharing his internet with me … again 😅. A cake as a “Thank you for your help”. He actually did get a couple of knit, homemade “elf- socks” for Christmas from me too as a “Thank you for your help-gift” ,- but I have been “hanging on” his internet for quite some days now so he #deserve a bit more, I think 😊.

And I have made some carrot- cake to some other neighbours too 😊. Also as a “Thank you for your help”- gift 😊. They did help me with my house- key on Thursday. They did lock in the housowner so they could pick up their things/ furniture,- and put, a #nice #surprise, some other furniture back to me 🥰.

Those neighbours did also got a couple each of knit “elf-socks” from me to Christmas, because they during the year brings me some fruits, vegetables and egg from their country/ finca 🥰. So I wanted to show them how #thankful I’m for that 😊. Because I’m,- very much 😊.

And I’m going to #visit Natasja this evening,- and it’s a bit my time to take a bit #care of her now 😊. So I’m going to bring with me sushi for dinner and #homemade, #fresh carrot- cake to dessert 😊. And a tiny gift to her and her husband, – one pink gin with a pink glass, and one blue gin with a blue glass to her husband 😊, (and of course some tonic too), because I know they #like gin and tonic 😊. And they deserve it,- a tiny little #attention from me 😊.

And,- of course I’m going to put a bit carrot- cake in the freezer too 😊. Maybe I need a tiny little tasty “attention” one day as well, – made by me for me? 😅

My carrot- cake was good and tasty, #fresh. I have “try tasting” it 😊,- but to be honest, – my daughter’s carrot- cake is a tiny bit better then mine. #Imagen that,- I didn’t think that could be possible 😅. Just kidding,- she really can bake, when she wants to #bake 😊. And we use different #recipes,- mine has a “touchy taste of lemon” 😊.

The recipe for my homemade carrot-cake: (for ca 8-10 pers)

1 1/2 dl sunflower oil

250 gr / about 4 dl wheat flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 dl brown sugar

60 gr walnuts, chopped up,

125 gr carrot, finely grated.

1/2 banana, must

2 eggs

1 tbsp milk

Mix it all together.

Keep the batter in a cake mold. Either covered with baking paper, or covered with butter. I usually use baking paper. Fry the cake next to the bottom of the oven, on 150 gr for about 50 min. Cool slightly before applying the cheese cream.

The cream

250 grams of cream cheese, either natural or Philadelphia, room-temperature.

2 teaspoons honey

1 teaspoon lemon juice.

Mix the cheese, honey and lemon well together and butter over the top of the cake.

Sprinkle with slightly chopped walnuts, slightly grated carrot and slightly grated lemon peel for garnish.

And there you have a fresh, tasty, homemade carrot- cake 😊. I hope you will #enjoy it,- I do and my children does too 🥰.

And,- it’s a part of “the five vegetables/ fruits per day” you know ( the carrot)😊.

The #cake can easily be stored in the freezer, and taken out and #served to #yourself, – because you deserve something #good and tasty 🥰, – or served to unexpected #guests 😊, – or invited guests too 😊. The #choice is yours 😊.

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

See you soon 😊

Ready for some #homemade #carrotcake with a tiny #touchy #taste of #lemon? 😊. I have #baked to the “whole” #neighbourhood today 😅. Just kidding,- but I have baked to some of my neighbours as a “Thank you for your help”- gift 😊. Do you want to try to bake it? The #recipe is in #mypost 😊.

And then it’s time for making the dessert for the Christmas- evening 🧡 Actually the “historic Haugesund-dessert”😊. A dessert made to a queen 🥰

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

I’m fine,- it’s going to be a #nice and #pleasant Christmas celebration together with my children and some of their friends 🧡. And a nice celebration needs a nice, #tasty, #homemade, and #Norwegian #traditional #dessert too 😊. A celebration dessert that was #originally made for Queen Maud in 1906 in Norway, the west coast of Norway 👸.

The most #traditional Christmas- dessert in Norway is something called “#ricepudding”,- and I has been growing up with this dessert every #Christmas since I was a child and until I did change the “dessert #traditions” in my home when I was an adult and started to create my own Christmas celebration for my children and my family 😊.

I didn’t like this #dessert to much, but I did really like the cold red sauce that was served together with it 😅. Oh,- I could actually drink the sauce 😅. But I did #eat the dessert, but only just because I did hope I was the #lucky one to get the almond that was hidden somewhere in the dessert 😅.

In Norway we do eat a lots of rice- pudding and rice porridge, especially in #December ❄.

It’s a tradition in Norway to hide a almond in the Christmas- dessert. It is actually a pretty old tradition in several countries in Europe to hide “something” in the dessert or cake, but at that time it was a bean and mostly it was hidden in a cake. Whoever found that bean was allowed to come up with funny names for those around the table, or ask them to do fun things.

In Norway we have a almond in the dessert instead, and the one who get the almond finds the almond in the porridge/ pudding receives a marzipan pig or a small gift. Not everyone likes marzipan so many have replaced the marzipan pig with a small, neutral gift instead. A gift that fits just as well as a boy or girl, young or adult – precisely because you did not know who found the almond 😊.

I don’t have this tradition in the dessert anymore, but I’m not sure why. I think it’s probably because the last 6 Christmas celebration in #Spain has been a bit different then from when we was living in #Norway 😊. So there will not be any almond in the dessert I’m going to make today 😊. And to be #honest, – it doesn’t feel quite right either for me to have one gift on the table this Christmas- evening just to the one that get the almond,- and no gifts to the rest 😊. So I m dropping it this year too 😊.

The homemade, Norwegian Christmas dessert I’m going to make is called “#DronningMaudpudding”/ #Queen Maud pudding”,- and it’s a dessert that’s actually are created from the west coast of Norway around there where I’m from 😊.

The #story about this dessert is that the queen Maud was going to visit the west coast of Norway, to the #town called #Haugesund in 1906,- and at this time the west coast of Norway was very poor,- but still they wanted to give the queen a nice and tasty dessert, that also was #cheap to make and didn’t need to much #ingredients 😊.

A dessert she really would #enjoy,- and obviously she did, and the rest of her people too 😊. Because it became a very “#famous” celebration dessert on the West coast of Norway after that. This dessert is also called #Haugesunddessert,- exactly and just because it was #created in the town Haugesund. Another very good reason for me to make this dessert to our Christmas celebration this year 😊,- and actually very natural too 😊. I need to admit I’m a bit #proud of this dessert and the #history behind it 😊.

They, the chefs in Haugesund in 1906, actually created a celebration dessert that’s used to wedding as well as confirmation and baptism. A dessert for big and different celebrations 😊. And this is me and my children’s #favourite dessert, – so it was very #natural for me to #change the #traditional #Norwegian #Christmasdessert from rice- pudding to Queen Maud pudding 😊. Special also since no one of us was the biggest fan of the rice pudding either. We do eat it when we get it served,- but if we can choose something else we do 😊.

Do you want to try to make a homemade Norwegian celebration dessert? The Haugesunddessert,- The Queen Maud pudding? I can promise you that if you like it sweet and tasty and pudding too,- you will probably enjoy this dessert 😊.

The #recipe for “Dronning Maud pudding” is: ( this is the recipe I’m using and it’s for 6 person)

7 plates gelatin

7 egg yolks

7 tbsp sugar

1 dl port wine or blackcurrant juice

6 dl cream cream

1 plate ( ca 250 gr.) chocolate. The chocolate should be grated / ground to almost powder

( 1/2 dl water)

Leave the gelantine in cold water for about 10 minutes. Squeeze out the water and melt the gelantine in 1/2 cup boiling water.

Whisk stiff egg dose of egg yolks and sugar. Mix the dissolved gelatin in port wine / blackcurrant juice and mix in the egg yolk. Let it stiffen a little. Then whisk the cream and mix it in.

Lay the coat layerwise in a serving bowl with grated chocolate days between each layer and of course on top of the coat. Set to cool and then serve as a tasty dessert after a party/ celebration dinner.

I’m making the dessert today, even its 2 days before Christmas. As long as I have it in the fridge it will not be a problem,- and after the Christmas- dinner and dessert,- if there are anything left I can put the rest in the cooler 😊.

It’s not very difficult to make this tasty and sweet dessert 😊. My challenge is normally the chocolate and to get it to “powder- bites”,- special when I have made this dessert here in Spain at the summertime. It’s melting when I m doing it 😅.

I hope you will #enjoy this Christmas and Celebrateion dessert as much as we do 😊. This one is really #homemade from a #Norwegian #recipe,- a recipe from the west coast of Norway ❄😊

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

See you soon 😊.

The #Christmas- dessert is finish 😊. #Homemade and #Norwegian, very #sweet and #tasty,the #recipe is from the West Coast of #Norway, and was created to the Queen Maud in 1906 👸.

The last Christmas- baking for this time 🎅😊

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

Today I’m going to #bake the last #Christmas- #cakes for this time, for this year 😊.

I have so fare shared with you some of my #Norwegian #recipes for #homemade Christmas cakes and #cookies. It has mainly been the Christmas- cakes and cookies I have been baking after we did moved to #Spain 😊. Four #different kinds of Christmas cakes,- but I did bake a couple of others too when we did live in Norway 😊.

Julegavetips til dame

It’s just not necessary to bake a lots of different types of cakes here in Spain because the Christmas- #celebration are mainly for us the Christmas- evening ,- and not like it was when we did live in Norway 🎄. Of course it’s good to have some #tasty homemade Christmas cakes and cookies as #snacks during the days between Christmas and the New Year evening,- and we have that too 😊. I have made more then enough, – also so I can share and split in 3 boxes. One box to each of my children 🧡.

The different from here in Spain and Norway in the time between Christmas and New Year evening was that we had different #family- parties during the days. We visit the ones we didn’t celebrate the Christmas- evening together with, or they was #invited to our home 😊.

ECCO Multi-Vent - 100% vanntett og pustende.

It was a lots of #food,- $dinners and #desserts, cakes and cookies from the Christmas- evening to the 1. January is 😊. Then it also was great to have a bit various kinds of cakes and cookies to serve to the guests,- as well as different dinners 😊.

In Spain it’s more and less the Christmas- evening we are together,- and it’s natural enough because our family are in Norway,- and the friends we have here in Spain #celebrate more and less the same way as us,- the Christmas- evening,- and then it’s a bit “normal” days again. The 25. December is a #Holyday in Spain like it is in Norway. Most have this day off from work 😊.

Today I’m going to make something we calls “#Sirupsnipper”/ “Syrup sipping”. Hmmm…..that’s sound a bit strange in English,- but it was the best translation I did find 😊.

The recipe for Norwegian homemade
“Syrup sipping”

1 dl syrup

1 dl cream

100 g melted butter

200 g sugar

500 g wheat flour

2 teaspoon baking soda

2 tsp ginger

2 tsp cinnamon

Mix syrup, cream and butter together. Mix the dry things together, then mix all the ingredients together into a smooth dough to roll out.

Roll the dough as flat as possible. Use shapes to make different kinds of cakes in different forms, sizes and shapes. Friy at 200 degrees, in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes.

And then you have some tasty and soft homemade Norwegian Christmas- cookies 😊. They are not very difficult to make either 😊.

Maybe I’m going to try some other homemade Christmas cakes and cookies next year? 😊 Like I did mention yesterday, – #traditions and #cultures are #changing when we and our life are changing too 😊. So there are a possibility for changing some of the Christmas- cakes and cookies traditions too 😊.

I hope you will #enjoy this Christmas Cookies like we do 😊.

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

See you soon 😊

Today’s #Norwegian #homemade #Christmas #cookies areSyrup sipping” / #sirupsnipper 😊. The last Christmas cookies I’m making this year 😊. They are easy to make and bake, and they are soft and #tasty too😊. The #recipe is in my post,- #Enjoy this Christmas cookies 🧡.

One of my favourite Christmas cakes are Sara Bernard 🥰

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

One of my #favourite Christmas cakes, or maybe I can call them #cookies,- are #SaraBernard 🥰.

They take a bit time to make,- but are worth every second in the kitchen 😊.

I remember when I was married,- ages ago 😅,- I actually needed to hide this cookies for my ex- husband 😅. If not he did eat them all. He actually did one year,- eat them all long before Christmas evening 😅.

So,- yes, – this Christmas cookies are just #marvellous 😍.

Like I mention, – you need to have some time to make this. You in away are making the cookies in three parts,- and it’s a bit important that each part are cold before you put them all together to Sara Bernard cookies 😊.

The #recipe for my Sara Bernard cookies are: (ca 15 pieces)

Part one:

200 gr almond

200 gr flour

about 3 egg whites

1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

Toast and grind the almonds. Add the flour and egg whites. Everything blends well together. You can either make small cakes using a teaspoon on a baking sheet-covered oven plate, and press the cakes a little flat – or just pour the whole mixture over a baking-sheet-baked oven plate.

Bake the cake (s) at about 175 degrees for about 15 min.

Part 2:

100 g sugar

1 1/4 dl water 3-4 egg yolks

200 gr butter

2 tsp cocoa

1 tsp vanilla sugar

Boil sugar, vanilla sugar and water, cook until it thickens a bit. about 10 min. Whisk the egg yolks, add in the sugar mixture. Stir in cocoa, then add soft butter. Cool before spreading the cream mixture over the cooked almond paste. The almond cake must also be cooled.

Part 3:

150 grams of hot chocolate

2 tsp oil

1 tsp vanilla sucks.

Melt the chocolate added oil in a water bath. Cool slightly and place over the top of the almond cookies with the buttercream. Set the cookies to cool – and keep them cold.

#Enjoy 🥰.

This cookies are just so #tasteful 😊. #Homemade #Norwegian #Christmas- cookies, – just try them,- and they will probably be one of your favourites too 😊.

It’s a bit of a calorie “bomb”,- but that’s the way I like it. Food with real taste- real food,- no “light” products 😊.

And as you probably know by know,- I like vanilla sugar too (and herbs and spices in my dinner as well) ,- you don’t need to have vanilla sugar in these cookies if you don’t want 😊. They will still be very, very tasteful 🥰.

Good luck with the baking 😊. Enjoy this tasty, #delicious, Norwegian homemade Christmas cookies, – Sara Bernard 🥰.

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

See you soon 😊.

One of my #favourite #Christmas cakes,- #SaraBernard 🥰. #Homemade, #Norwegian, #tasty and #delicious 🧡. Takes a bit time to make,- but it’s worth it 😊. The #recipe for the cookies is in my post 😊. #Enjoy 🧡.

Its no white Christmas ❄- but white Christmas cookies for Christmas instead 🥯🎄

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

In Norway the old #tradition was to make 7 different kinds of Christmas cakes and cookies. At least 7 different recipes 😊. I actually did that too a couple of times,- but after a while I found out it was better to make more of the #cakes and #cookies my children did like and ate 😊.

It’s different traditions in different parts of the country (in #Norway), also when it comes to traditional Christmas- food, – like both dinner, cakes, cookies and desserts. I’m going to focus on my traditions ,- I think that’s best, since I can and know them best 😊.

This year it will be probably 4 different kinds of #Christmas cakes and cookies in my home, I think. And on “the baking- menu” today its something we call “hvite kakemenn” in Norwegian. The correct translation will be “white cookie men”,- but there are some other forms and shapes on this cookies then men 😅. So I prefer to call it for white Christmas cookies in English. Its “suits” a bit better 😊.

And of course this is #homemade, #Norwegian #Christmas- #cookies,- nothing else. Made from “the ground” , but easy to bake 😊.

The recipe for white Christmas cookies:

250 g wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

175 gr sugar

2 teaspoon vanilla sugar – mix together

1 tablespoon soft margarine knead into the dry.

Stir everything with 1 cup of water.

Knead the dough well, it should not be chewy or sticky, preferably sprinkle with some extra wheat flour if it is moist.

Then roll the dough out as flat as possible. Put out cakes / biscuits with different cake shapes, and place on baking tray covered with baking paper.

Fry on 250 gr for about 5 min.

You have to be careful all the time, the cakes are cooked/ fried quickly. They should not be golden, but still white and fine, just slightly larger than when you put them in the oven 😊.

Then I have made 2 kinds of Christmas- cakes so fare 😊. Slowly I’m getting “there”,- and slowly the Christmas- sprit comes a bit back too 😊.

Enjoy the white Christmas cookies as best as you can 😊. Here in my home they normally “disappear” in my children’s mouths very fast 🥰. They are #sweet and #soft, #easy to #make and fun to #create 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊.

“The white Christmas cookies” are ready 😊. # Homemade, with #Norwegian #recipe. In Norway we call them “hvite kakemenn”/”white cakemen”. They are white, and not just men,- but in different others shapes and forms 😊. #Easy to make, and with a #sweet and #soft #taste 😊. #Enjoy 🧡.
