Eierkuchen are flat cakes (German crepes/pancakes) made out of a starch-based batter. Eierkuchen are a staple I feel every country has in some kind of variation. The French have their Crepe, the Americans have their Pancake in Spain they have Tortilla, in Japan Okonomiyaki. It’s truly fascinating how food connects us! Our neighbours Switzerland and Austria call them Plinsen. In northern Germany, we call them Eierkuchen in the southern part they are known as Pfannkuchen. I am from northern Germany Berlin, so Eierkuchen it is!

Eierkuchen German Pancake Crepe

Eierkuchen is one of my childhood staples. We had them in kindergarten on very few occasions. The way I eat them is traditionally with cinnamon and sugar and apple sauce. Nowadays I put fruits or Nutella on it as well and I even made a crepe cake ones.

This is my mother’s recipe she usually has several pans on the stove and makes several at the same time. This is the Eierkuchen I grew up with it and got in my lunchbox occasionally. It brings bake quite a lot of fond memories. My classmates always used to admire me for my lunchboxes and the same goes for the lunchboxes of my little sister. My mom always spends a great deal of time on making healthy and tasty lunchboxes her kids would enjoy. I think her biggest concern until today is that we would be bored because she herself gets bored with the same dish quickly.

So here you go with my childhood recipe:

Moist Carrot Cake Recipe

One of the nicest things in Sweden are their endless national pastry days. We had Cheesecake and Kladdkakka (chocolate cake) on my blog so far. Well, on the 3rd of February is Sweden’s carrot cake day. Naturally, Jakob and me had to meet up and make some carrot cakes!

So here comes the adapted version from inspiredtaste’s recipe as a base. We managed to make two small cakes out of the batter, six muffins and 12 flat small cookie muffins. You could probably make six additional normal sized muffins out of the flat ones.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200° degrees.

  2. Prepare the cake batter: Mix all dry ingredients together. Add all remaining moist ingredients for the batter. Mix everything until the batter is even.

  3. Bake the cake at 200° degrees for around 35-40 minutes.

  4. While the cake is baking. Prepare the frosting. We had a rather fluid frosting since we used sour cream, if you want it to be denser, use cream cheese.

    Dense cake frosting:
    Mix the powdered sugar with the cream cheese. That’s it.

    Fluid cake frosting sauce:
    Add the powdered sugar to the sour cream. Melt 100gr butter and add to the mixture. Put in the fridge until you are ready to frost the cake.

Swedish cheesecake recipe – Ostkakans Dag!

Yet another Swedish pastry day has come. We had the Gustav Adolf Day, we had the Kladdkaka (chocolate mud cake) Day and today we have the Ostkakans (cheesecake) Day!!

Ostkaka literally translates to “cheesecake”. Do not confuse it with the American cheesecake though. It’s more similar to the German cheesecake (“Käsekuchen”). It originates from Småland, and there is a similar variant in Hälsingland.

The Swedish dish has a firm consistency and subtle, creamy taste. It is usually eaten lukewarm with different jams, fruits, whipped cream or ice cream. I love eating freshly baked cake out of the oven or when it’s lukewarm, my friends prefer eating cake cold though. I often get weird looks for wanting to eat my cake warm so I am glad that you are actually supposed to eat Ostkaka warm. How do you prefer you cake? Tell me in the comment section 😉

Ostkaka is usually made by using rennet to milk and letting the its casein coagulateIn and then adding flour. In the following recipe we took cottage cheese as our base instead since its easier to purchase.

Jakob gradually losing patience haha

The traditional version from Småland contains added almonds, bitter almonds, eggs, cream and powdered sugar. Its consistency is more grainy than in the Hälsingland version.

In the version from Hälsingland you do not use almonds. Slice the baked cake, add some cream to the cake slices and let the whole thing get warm in the oven. The cake is served with a berry sauce or with cloudberry jam and cream.
