Very delicious this one. And the first yeast-bread I somewhat mastered! It is soooooooo good!!! I started making this without a mixer, so it is possible, the ‘Krume’ as it is called in German – the stuff inside the crust, will not turn out as flexible and homogenous if you make it by hand, but […]
A third attempt, this time with longer baking and some more learned details. Just a reminder – I read on the English Wikipedia that the old way of making Knäckebröd – Knäckebrot in German and Swedish Crisp Bread in English was with crushed ice or snow.

IT IS RED!!! Ah – well – reddish at least!!! YAY!! It works. It is a little more subtle in colour than expected, but it works. YAY for trying out and getting a result!!! This is part IV of the quest and as always, the ‘final’ recipe will come when the trial phase is over. […]

A cake. I wanted to make a whole cake. With the wonderfully sounding ‘Ermine’ icing/frosting/filling. So I did. And it was better than the cupcakes before and that was mostly due to a change in ingredients! This is part II of the quest and again, the ‘final’ recipe will come, once I am happy with […]
Broken Glass Red Velvet (Dexter or Halloween) Cupcakes, what an awesome idea. I saw them, was intrigued and wanted to make them. But not from a cake packet and when I learned how much food colouring went in and about the myths, I started digging a little myself!
