Apple Crisps

Autumn is my favourite time of year food-wise. I love being able to choose local produce, and British apples are the best! This is a nice way of using some of the less pretty but still delicious apples. The crisps will keep for weeks in an air-tight glass, but I doubt you’ll be able to…

Healthy Waffles

Waffles made in the shape of four hearts are classic to Scandinavia. In my childhood, they would only be served made with sugar and topped with sweet stuff like brunost or jam. Now, waffles or vafler are also commonly served with savoury toppings and are a nice treat in the packed lunch. Norwegians are big…

Herby Irish Soda Bread

I do go on about no-knead bread and the importance of a long prove quite a bit, however, sometimes you need bread and that quick! I am amazed by the concept of the Irish Soda Bread, as it defeats everything I know about bread making, yet it still works. The bread is made using baking…

Sugar Free Cardamom Waffles

Few things take me back more than waffles. They remind me of my mum, who made them almost every weekend. Sometimes topped with homemade jam made from berries picked one of our hikes. My favourite was bilberry, but I particularly recall an evening we made jam from cloudberries we had picked earlier that day, served…

Simple Blackberry Jam

The first time I made blackberry jam was a tragedy. I blame it on not having a sugar thermometer, but it was mainly down to me having no idea what I was doing. I spend hours picking blackberries across Falmouth. Beautiful coastal paths covered in bushes make it a lovely exercise. I went with friends…

Knekkebrød

Scandinavians love knekkebrød, or crispbread. I have done a seeded version before, but this one is more like the classic you get in the shop. The knekkebrød is made with a yeasted dough, which means you get those lovely little air bubbles, making it super crunchy and delicious. This version is simple as chips and…

Dronning Maud Pudding

In English, this dessert translates to ‘Queen Maud Pudding’ and is a Norwegian classic. The dessert was invented when Queen Maud, the youngest daughter of the British King Edward VII, and her husband King Haakon visited Haugesund in Norway in 1906. Originally the pudding consists of layers of whipped cream and chocolate, however, here you’ve…
