Chocolate buns

This is last blog in this month.We had lots of guest´s yesterday so to have something tasty for them i made these chocolate buns and boy are they good and just the best buns ever i think.

very soft and fluffy buns are the best ,the recipe is very big but in a big house you need BIG

  • 900-1000 gram hveteml ,flour
  • 5 dl melk (ca 30 grader) ,milk warm
  • 25-50 gram gjær ,yeast depends on how long you leave the dough to rest ,i used 40 gr and left it for almost an hour
  • 150 gram sukker ,sugar
  • 1 ts kardemomme,cardimon
  • 1/4 ts salt
  • 1 egg
  • 150 gram smør, i terninger ,butter in bits
  • kokesjokolade, finhakket ,chocolate chopped small
  • brunt sukker ,brown sugar
  • smør ,butter
  • kanel,cinamon
but everything (not the butter) in the mixer and mix very well  then add the butter in small pices at a time and mix good ,then let the dough rest for an hour or so with a plastinc film over it (in a warm spot) i put in top of the stove while im heating the oven

here you can see how to make these beautiful buns ,rolling the dough is fun and makes pretty buns as well .

these are great for the kids with cold milk :) and for mums since mums like chocolate
bake and enjoy .

Made these as desert for the family ,easy and tasted wonderful.

here is the meringue recipe


  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 150g caster sugar 
  • Heat oven to 110C/fan 90C/gas ¼. Tip the egg whites and lemon juice into the clean bowl of a food mixer. Whisk until the whites double in volume and hold a peak when the whisk is drawn through them. Keep the whisk running and add the sugar a tbsp at a time, incorporating completely before adding the next. Whisk until all the sugar has been added and the whites are glossy.
  • Place a square of baking parchment on a large baking sheet. Pencil nine circles, about 7cm each, onto the parchment. Spoon the meringue into a large piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle and pipe concentric rounds to fit each drawn circle, piping two or more rings around the edge to form a nest. Bake for 2 hrs until they are crisp and lift off the paper easily. Leave to cool completely.
the filling
  • 250g Original Philadelphia
  • 50g icing sugar
  • ½tsp vanilla extract
  • 400g fresh strawberries
  • 8 meringue nests, either homemade or shop bought.
  • Approx 80g strawberry dessert sauce
  1. Whisk together the Philadelphia, icing sugar and vanilla extract.
  2. Roughly chop the strawberries into small bite size pieces and stir into the Philadelphia mixture. Divide this evenly between the meringue nests.
  3. Drizzle the dessert sauce over the nests and if you like dust with a little icing sugar. Best served straight away.

Chocolate cake

On sunday we had so much to do around the house and we got guest as well so i made a cake and it was delicious everyone loved the cream on top and the cake was very moist and i will for sure make that one again .
Its poring rain today so im not really sure what im gona do ,maby some thing around the house ,more laundry boring i know but someone has to do it .
 I wish i had some cake left ,then i would snuggle under a blanket with my son and watch some tv and eat a litle cake .No im trying to watch my diet and ive lost 1 kg in a week so its going great .
I cant wait to paint my new table /bench white ,it will look so good i think .
I wish some of the rain here would go to Iceland ,that would help alot with the ash,
some peoble in Kirkjubæjarklaustur have left there homes :/ and are staying with friends and family ,they say that it could turn into lava soon ,so then there wont be as much ash but it could stay like that for one or two months !!
stay safe everyone


The volcano in Grímsvötn is not slowing down far from that and the ash is already in Reykjavík the capital of Iceland

,my family and everyone else is staying in as much as they can with closed windows so the ash wont go in as much ,i feel so bad for the peoble that live near the volcano its just horrible there now ,im sure that alot of them will leave there homes soon if they have not already .
there is just no way for them to stay there ,and farmers are loosing some animals :( and this is the 3rd eruption in a very short time .
This is just not what the peoble of Iceland need as this point
its having an impact on airtraffic and not just in Iceland ,the Uk as well
I just talked to my sister and she lives close to the capital and they are seeing ash there ,im not sure i feel good about not beeing there or not

This is the begining of the eruption
You have to see this amazing video

Yesterday was really busy in a way ,we dint go anywhere just staying home and doing things around the house ,hubby was building me a table with seats on ,its so cool and since he was working all day and the day before i made him a healthy salat and we had a cozy time in the green house.
its bankabygg wich is grown i Iceland with schrimps ,mynt ,tomatos salt and pepper ,really jummy and so healthy
you can see the table he made for me ,i just need to paint it white .
Im not really sure how things are going back home in Iceland ,all i know it that there is so much ash but it seems as the volcano is slowing down but making much ash and the ash is already in Reykjavik ,i feel sorry for the animals ,but the farmers are trying to get them inside or those animals they can reach .
Its really strange watching this on the internet and not beeing home ,so i hope everyone is save .

Oh my

this eruption is turing out to be really big they say :( wich is not good ,all flights in Iceland have been cancelld
there is alot of ash so this is not good for the peoble that live near ,i dont think they need to move peoble away from the place .
No one is in danger .
