Do you know the Feeling? You’re sitting at home snuggled up on the Couch, watching a movie and you wanna have something fresh and sweet ? But you don’t wanna do a lot baking?! I know that very well!! – Gosh that’s sounds so much like an ad 🙂
Anyway I discovered mug cakes for me! I just love them. You can make them in so many diffrent variations. Chocolate, cinnamon, apple, banana, vanilla, peanutbutter and so on.
I basically just have a look which ingredients I have in my cupboard. Then I just throw everything in my mug wisk it a bit together. Off in the microwave it goes. It’s so easy and so yummy !!
Today I’ve got another Comfort Food for you! It’s one of the oldest Danish dishes from the middle of the18th century. There are different types of recipes that are prepared locally – and in its own style and variation.
Both have the two basic elements in the dish areapplesand thick slices ofstreaky pork– which at that time either was preserved bysmoking,salting or air-drying, to last for over one year. When the industrialisation period started in the19th century-and many peasants moved to the bigger cities for work – the“Æbleflæsk”dish followed with the new inhabitants – and slowly theApple Porkbecame very popular among them too.
Today the tasty and mouth watering“Æbleflæsk”is turned into a national winter supplement and recipe – that is enjoyed by nearly every Dane at wintertime – especially at Christmas time.
What dish comes first to your mind, if someone asks you for danish dishes? I’d think of smørrebrød! If you don know smørrebrød or open faced sandwich, it’s a butteredrye breadand decorated with all types of toppings.
There are so many different potions of food items ascold cuts – pieces of meat or fish – various paste – salad dressingsandcheese.“Smørrebrød”is normally served together with the famous Danishbeerandsnaps.
This one is a really easy recipe. Just take some rye bread slices, butter them and fully cover with the basic entrées of either vegetables – seafood or meat choices – and then the many types of tasty topping creations – which altogether is in great harmony with the rest of all the delicious food items on the sandwich.
I just discovert the most delicious thing you can do with a toast – beside french toast!
It’s a chocolate sandwich. Not with Nutella or anything … it’s with actual chocolate! And the chocolate was pink and with sprinkels! I felt like a little girl, who just has seen an pink unicorn! It was so delicious!!! 🙂
So now I’m gonna tell you how to have the same amazing taste experience as me !
Today I’ve chosen a recipe which will make your sweet tooth happy.
It’s a dutch candy called stroopwafle. Translated it means as much as syrup waffle.
The waffle is made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle. It is one of the favotite sweets of dutch people and their tourists. I’ve tried it for the first time in the city of Gouda, where it was originally made first.
My friend from the Netherlands has send me an authentic recipe for homemade stroopwafels, cause she knows how much I love sweet things!!!
So what do you think about this picture down below ? Let’s guess what these gentleman are eating…
These people are dutch men who eat one of their favorite small, slippery, slimy, fatty, smelly sea-creature- the hallowed Herring! To say that the Dutch like herring is a vast understatement. It’s rather a a tremendous love affair between these two.
