hot hot chocolate.

hot chocolate made of melted chocolate and steamed milk, the only way of doing it from now on.

today's housewife:

thought i should try to make an effort and translate the recipe for my very easy but oh. my. god. so delicious bread. the dough is quite simple, and it doesn't have to rise! i put dried apricots, carrot and almond to flavour mine, but you can use what ever you feel like! kind of. (if you don't understand my translation, please comment so that i can change it.)

apricot and almond bread.



0,9 cup porridge meal
2,2 cup spelt flour
0,4 cup grated carrot
0,4 cup chopped dried apricots (quite chunky bits)
0,4 cup chopped almonds (quite chunky bits)
2 teaspoon bicarbonate
1 pinch salt
1,7 cup natural yoghurt
3 tablespoon honey
pumpkin and sunflower seeds to put on top


mix all the dry ingredients. add carrot, apricots, almonds, yoghurt and honey. mix well, and put in baking tin made for bread (go get one in ikea if you don't have one). make sure you put ovenpaper in the baking tin, so the bread doesn't stick. spread some seeds on top, and gently poke them down so that they won't fall off when it's done. bake in oven at 350 °F in 80 minutes.


today's housewife:

have i've been busy or what. baking bread is my new calling, and i'm pretty good at it. will try and translate the recipe soon.


today's must-have:

finally. 12 days has passed, and he's back. went to arlanda to meet him, with flowers in my hand and butterflies in my tummy. and to make sure he's not gonna run away again, i followed claudias orders and baked cupcakes, with love:

chocolate x3 cupcakes

make them as big as you want :)

all measurements are swedish ones, don't know how to translate them to cups. sorry.

4 1/2 decilitre wheat flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
almost 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dl cocoa
2 1/2 dl sugar
2 dl milk
125 g melted butter (not salted)
2 eggs
100 g dark chocolate, chopped in small pieces

50 g cream cheese
25 g melted butter
2-3 dl icing sugar
1-2 tea spoon vanilla sugar
100 g melted white chocolate

mix flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa and salt in a bowl. whisk butter, milk and eggs. add the fluor mix. add the chocolate. divide into cupcake papers. bake at 175* c for 12-30 min, depending on how big you make them. duh.

whilst in the oven: mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla sugar and chocolate in a bowl. add as much icing sugar as needed.

let the cupcakes cool down, and decorate with the icing. use as much other decorations that you like! but it ain't love without hearts...

today's sunniest: stockholm. the weather is awesome, i've almost got a tan already!

winter's coming to town.
