Tilslørede bondepiker is a very traditional Norwegian dessert, and both my grandmothers used to make it. Layers of soft cream, crunchy crumble and sweet apples gives this dessert a fantastic flavor and interesting textures.
Norwegian Skolebolle (Skolebrød) custard & coconut buns
Long ago, a friend asked if I had a recipe for Skolebolle. I didn’t, cause I think the industrial version you get in the stores is so god-aweful I never buy them. But then I thought about how they COULD be if they were made well…
Norwegian Kneipp bread recipe

Tasty AF home made naan with nigella seeds
Warm from the oven, soft, pillowy, slightly chewy naan, flavored with nigella seeds, and brushed with ghee. That is pure happiness on a plate. We eat a lot of naan, both with curries and dahls, so this is a tried and true recipe!
New York style sourdough pizza recipe
I love all kinds of pizza, and I find this style of dough incredibly usable and accessible for most home cooks who wants a seriously great pizza, but don’t own a dedicated pizza oven.
Homemade New York Deli rye bread
This is one of my favorite styles of bread for meat sandwiches. On the rare occasion that I smoke a brisket, I always make sure to also make this bread, but it is also very delicious with aged cheese for example.
Norwegian apple cake with Calvados, vanilla and cardamom
We like to enjoy this cake with our afternoon coffee in the cockpit. A dash of crème fraiche adds a creamy freshness to it. But adding a spoonful quality vanilla ice cream certainly won’t be a disappointment either 😉

Is there really anything more Danish than Danish? I am of course talking about the world famous Danish pastry. Here’s how you make it at home – and it’s way easier than it looks!
Classic Norwegian Grovbrød dark rye bread with syrup
Until I started baking myself, I was completely unaware that my favorite bread as a kid was indeed a rye bread. All I knew was that the deep flavors, the super soft interior, and that dark, crunchy crust was utterly irresistible to me.
Grandma Ranveig’s super soft sandwich bread
Truth been told, she always made poppy seed horns, not bread or buns, but her grandson (that would be me) is a lazy SOB. Regardless, and however you shape them, this is super soft and fluffy bread, and perfect for a great sandwich!
Traditional Norwegian Julebrød (Julekake)
There are very few things as Christmasy as homemade Norwegian Julebrød. In fact, Julebrød means “Christmas bread”. It is traditionally made with raisins, succades & cardamom, and the addition of wort or beer makes it extra special!
Classic Danish Æbleskiver Christmas snacks
These light and fluffy spherical baked snacks are a decidedly Danish, typically enjoyed around Christmas. We love to snack on these along with a mug Gløgg, a good book, and a fire going in the wood stove.
