Danish Fedtebrød – Coconut Cookie Slices with Rum Glaze

I’m so excited to share these Danish Fedtebrød – Coconut Cookie Slices with Rum Glaze with you today! My mum found my Danish grandmother’s Saffir Mel (flour) collection of cookie recipes down the back of a shelf the other day.

Neapolitan Marzipan Chocolates

I have a confession, I am addicted to marzipan as well as chocolate! So when I was asked to come up with an idea for an edible gift for Christmas that a child could help with, my mind immediately turned to marzipan. As a child I would make marzipan balls dipped in chocolate with my …

Kransekage Mummies

Having never celebrated Halloween as a child (as it was just something our American cousins did) when I had my own children I soon made up for this void. Indeed our front window gets turned into a Halloween grotto every year and until recently both of my children went out trick or treating, now it’s …

20 Fab Recipe Highlights for my 3rd Anniversary

I can’t believe that my blog is 3 years old today. I seem to have come such a long way since I started. When I posted my first recipe it was a very relaxed affair and I even over cooked my soup as I’d left it on the hob whilst on the school run – …

Risalamande (Danish Rice Pudding) with Cherry Sauce

Risalamande has been served on Christmas Eve in Denmark since around 1900. As I am half Danish I remember always feeling quite lucky as a child to have two Christmas celebrations! The first was on Christmas Eve where we had a traditional Danish meal usually with goose or duck and Risalamand followed by singing Danish …

Ploughman’s Open Sandwich

Happy National Sandwich Day everyone! I had no idea there was such a day (3rd November) until the good people at Branston got in touch and asked me to create a sandwich in celebration of this yearly event! So taking inspiration from my Anglo/Danish roots I decided to do a mash up of a Ploughman’s …

Egg & Prawn Open Sandwich with Lemon Mayonnaise

  Being half Danish I regularly put together Danish open sandwiches (smørrebrød) on traditional wholegrain rye bread but am aware it’s not to everyone’s taste. So when my mother told me about this particular Egg and Prawn open sandwich that she makes all the time, I thought it would be ideal to share during British …

Danish Vanilla Wreaths (Vanille Kranse) + Oxo Good Grips Cookie Press Giveaway – Closed

Every tin of Danish Butter Cookies has a Vanilla Wreath in it and my mother used to make these cookies every Christmas using a special star shaped disc on her meat mincer. She’d wind the handle and out would come little strips of dough that she would curl round to form a wreath shape. I …

As a child not a Christmas went by without my Danish mum baking a whole array of traditional biscuits and cookies. Finsk Brød is a recipe that she learned to make at school and no doubt here own mother would have made. This particular version comes straight out of a page pulled from a Danish …

Spelt Danish Apple Ring

I was flicking through my mother’s old recipe folder the other day when a recipe I’d never made had caught my eye (it translated to White Cake with Apple). I realised the only reason I’d never made it was because it had a type of flour in it called “Grahams Mel” which is Danish and …
