Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally.

Dipping decorations: granola, chopped nuts, sprinkles, jimmies, crushed cookies, and toasted coconut

Arrange the dipping decorations on several flat plates. Working with 1 banana at a time, dip it in the chocolate and turn to completely coat (spoon some on, if needed). Roll the dipped Dipping decorations: granola, chopped nuts, sprinkles, jimmies, crushed cookies, and toasted coconutbanana in the desired decorations, transfer to the sheet pan, and return to the freezer if not to be eaten right away.

Once frozen, store the bananas in an airtight container.

Serving suggestion: To serve at a kid’s party, paint a hunk of styrofoam and stick the banana handles in the top, so they stand upright.

These are so colorful and festive looking it makes you feel like it’s a party when you look at an assortment of them. And they couldn’t be easier to make, even your kids could do it. You can use white chocolate too, for a more wintry or icy look.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Yesterday I baked cupcakes for the summerparty with my colleagues. The funnest part was of course to decorate them.

The cupcakes:

  • 2 eggs, 1 cup of granulated sugar – whip until creamy and light yellow
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of fruit (I used one cup apple jam and 2 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 ts vanilla sugar
  • 1 ts baking powder
  • 1 ts salt

Spread in cupcake forms and bake at 200C for about 15 minutes (or until you can stick a knitting pin (or fork or match) into the cake and nothing sticks to the knitting pin).

The Chocolate butter Cream:

  • 200 grams melted chocolate
  • 200 grams whipped room-tempered butter (not melted)
  • 3 dl powder sugar (Icing Sugar)
  • Strawberry extract (instead of the mocca extract used in the linked recipy with the pictured description of how to do).

Decorate with decorating set and sprinkle sugars or decorating flowers or other on.

Scandinavias best cake !

Today I made one of my favourite cakes for a party I was invited to. The best thing about it though is that it is really easy to bake and it just takes a little less than 1 hour to make.
This Recipe is also glutenfree for celiacs.

Here is the recipe for you guys to enjoy.
Maybe a great idea for weekends snack?

Ingredients: (PS: European measurements)
6 eggs
300 grams of sugar
200 grams of ground almonds
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Separate the yolk from the whites and whip the egg whites until you can turn the bowl upside down and the eggs don’t fall out.
Add 300 gr. of sugar and whip until well blended.

Mix ground almonds, vanilla sugar and baking powder carefully with the egg and sugar.

Cover a large square pan (30×40 cm) with greaseproof paper. Butter the greaseproof paper and spread the dough on the paper.

Cook for 35-40 minutes @ 160 Celsius.

Chocolate Cream (Ingredients):
6 egg yolks
150 grams of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
6 tablespoons of coffee
100 grams of milk chocolate

Slowly heat until thickens, stir until done to avoid burning.
Cool chocolate cream somewhat and add 160 grams of butter fit for baking.

Cool cream in refrigerator until cool.

Cake should soon be done and when it is, remove from oven.
Remove paper (and cake – the cake is supposed to be somewhat flat) from pan and let cool on a grid / rack.

2-3 Bananas.

Cut cake in 2 and put 1 part on a nice serving platter.
Fill with Chocolate Cream.
Add 1 layer of banana slices.
Put the second part of the cake on top.

Cover with whipped vanilla cream (About 3 dl).
Decorate with sliced Kiwi, Strawberries and blueberries.

Serve same day (possibly next day – but this cake is really, really good and it’s not likely you will have lots of leftovers)
