In Denmark baking is a key element to the holidays. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t associate baking with Christmas. Now we do bake all year around, but it’s when december hits that we bake the more heavy spiced stuff like gingerbread. So here I am with a recipe for a ginger-honey bread house also called “Honningkagehus” in Danish.

This recipe is a traditional Danish Christmas cookie. It smells divine and taste like heaven. I’ll admit they aren’t figure friendly, but you won’t get the same taste if using fat free stuff. This recipe will make around 35 cookies :D



75 g of Almond flour
250 g of All purpose flour
1 Egg (L/XL)
180 g of Sugar
200 g of Butter (Salted and soft – room temperature)
1-1½ tsp of Vanilla powder*


How to

Step 1: Mix the vanilla powder, sukker and buttet together until it’s creamy.

Step 2: Add the egg and mix well.

Step 3: Add the two kinds of flour and mix until smooth.

Step 4: Put the mixture in a fabric piping bag with a star tip and pipe the mixture into circles (5 cm diameter)

Step 5: Bake at 200 degrees celcius until they are lightly golden brown (10-14 minutes)


*The vanilla powder can be replaced with the seeds from a large vanilla pod.

Set your oven to 175°C and get that out of the way while you mix the batter.

Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and vanillasugar and pour it into the butter/sugar/egg mix and whisk again till everything is combined. Put in the chocolate and mix until it’s all combined.

Place a teaspoon of the mixture on a baking tray and continue until the tray is filled. Bake in the oven for 7-15 minutes, depending on the size.

baked buns
So today I decided to bake some buns for mom and myself. I hate baking buns, because the dough usually get all over my hands and yuck I hate that, but with this “pre-made” bun stuff the dough isn’t sticky and they taste just as good, if not even better than those you make from scratch!

All you have to do with these “Quickboller” is to mix the luke warm water and flour-mixture together untill you get a smooth and non-sticky texture. Then let is rise/rest for 25 minutes and then put the dough on your table and roll is out. Divide it into 10-12 buns and let rise for 25 minutes. Bake them for around 12 minutes in a 200°C oven and they are done and taste heavenly :D

I do realize this bun mixture is Danish, but I’m sure other countries have something similar.
