A few months later

After a few months here in Sweden with no computer to call my own and only an iPhone, I've finally remembered (or got unlazy enough) to figure the iPhone/blog thing out.

We are officially a food blog.

To start off, our 2pm Sunday breakfast. 2 liters of orange juice were consumed and quite possibly a whole package of bacon. And when I say quite possibly, I mean most definitely.

This is Mr.Josefsson's birthday cake love.

Swedish sokerkaka (sugar cake)

6-8 people.

75 grams butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 cup milk or cream
2 ½ cups sugar
2 tsp ground cardamom
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
3 cup flour

Grease and flour a sockerkaksform of about two liters. (which is a basic cake pan. I obviously used heart shaped cupcake tins.)

Whisk sugar and eggs until fluffy, preferably with electric mixer or food processor.

Melt the butter and stir in the milk in butter.

Mix the flour, cardamom, and baking powder thoroughly in a bowl.

Stir together egg and sugar mixture with butter and milk mixture.

Add the dry goods and stir smooth.

Spread batter evenly in pan and bake at 400 degrees about 30 minutes. Feel with a stick if the cake is firm in middle.

Sprinkle with sugar immediately when you take it out of the oven and let it "melt" before you turn it out.

Turn out and let the cake cool on a rack.

Don't forget to eat it with a strong cup of coffee, a fantastic Swedish man (or whatever nationality you tend to love) and remember to call it "fika". Cake and coffee always deserve a special name.

    I love 'Fika' time!

  3. Love, love, love to read and see you here again, both are wonderful treats for me. Love you MOM
