Swedish kladdkaka – aka Chocolate mud cake

This, my dear friends is Swedish kladdkaka - literally "gooey cake"! Personally I think "gooey cake" sounds better than "mud cake" - don't you think so? Shall we start a petition to start calling this "Gooey cake" in English? Haha. No matter how you slice it, this insanely awesome creation is the cookie dough of the cake world - and it simply doesn't get better than that! I have so much I want to tell you about this cake, and what's in, on and around it! Let's start with almonds ... Continue Reading

Raw carrot cake

With Stockholm experiencing some unseasonably warm weather, it felt like the perfect time to make a raw dish. And seeing as how it's been awhile since I've made a dessert, I thought I'd treat you to some raw carrot cake! While carrots (and many other vegetables) are available to most of us year round, I still think of this time of year as harvest time - especially for small, backyard gardeners. There are certainly a whole lot of things you can do with carrots, but I think you'll agree ... Continue Reading

Rhubarb crumble with star anise and almond

Nothing says "Summer" like rhubarb pie - except maybe rhubarb crumble!   Although rhubarb root has been used by the Chinese for medicinal purposes since around 2700 BC, it wasn't until the late 1700s that Europeans, and shortly thereafter Americans, started using the stalks in food. As rhubarb is quite tart, it's popularity grew as the price of sugar dropped. If you ask most people, they'd probably say that it's a fruit, because that's how we use it. However, it's actually a ...

XXX raw bars

Did you end up here after Googling for XXX? Come on, be honest now. Ok, so maybe this is food porn, but what I was trying to say was "3x raw bars", or "triple raw bars", or "I made 3 different raw bars" - but those titles weren't nearly as fun! When I was deciding on what kinds of raw bars to make, images of those 3-flavored containers of ice cream came flashing into my mind. You know the ones, with one brown, one white and one pink stripe - chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. While I ... Continue Reading

Perfect plant milk – an oat/almond blend

I started drinking plant milk about seven years ago, and I fell for oat milk from the start. While almond milk seems to be the number one type of plant-based milk in the US, here in Sweden, it’s oat milk that makes the largest splash – or well, if you drop something into the milk it will make a splash. Or, uh, ok, forgot the splash part. One great thing about oat milk, especially making your own, is the price. Even if you live a lot closer than I do to California, where something ...
