Who can resist a cheesecake? It’s perfect for any occasion and it’s light and fresh.
This is an American-style cheesecake with strawberry jelly on top. I’ve cut out some small strawberry hearts that I’ve put inside the jelly for an extra cute touch. The cake takes a few hours to make so be sure that you give yourself enough time. It stores well in the fridge for 3 days. Read more

Dark Chocolate Mousse

Everyone loves a good and fluffy chocolate mousse, right? This recipe is rich, creamy, easy and delicious. You can use is in a dessert like this, as a cake filling or just eat it straight from the bowl. Add fresh berries to enhance the chocolate flavour and some nuts for crunch. I’ve used Mille Fiori in this recipe but you can use any honey that you prefer. (The Mille Fiori that I’m using is organic from Italy, I bought it on this site.) I recommend you to use a chocolate of high quality for this mousse.

The Chocolate Dome (Madbloggerudfordringen #8)

chocolate dome chocolate mousse raspberry curd delliedelicious

This recipe is something that I’ve created for a food blogger challenge that I’m in. It’s the Danish site Madbloggerudfordringen that is hosting this challenge. This is the third time that I’ve entered a challenge on this site and I love it!. This time around the theme is colours. I was given the colour brown to work with. I could do whatever I wanted as long as you could eat it and the colour that I was given stood out and was the star of the dish/drink. Brown was a bit tricky, I thought it would be easier to come up with something that wasn’t chocolate or caramel, but it wasn’t. So after many hours of brainstorming I decided to go with the “safe” option – chocolate.
I’ve made a dome out of tempered chocolate and filled it with a dark chocolate mousse (flavoured with mille fiori). I serve this mousse with a raspberry curd, toasted pistachio, fresh raspberries, meringues and liquorice powder. I wanted to add some vibrant colours to the dessert just to really bring forward the beautiful dark colour of the chocolate dome. But the ingredients that I’ve added also helps lifting the taste of the mousse. 
This dessert came out great and it looks really beautiful too so I believe that my mission is completed  and I can’t wait to see what the other bloggers comes up with!

This is a great dessert that’s easy to make but tastes like something that you’d get in a nice restaurant. The texture is very similar to semifreddo so it’s light and velvety. The crust is made out of pecans and together with the maple syrup mousse it’s a combination made i heaven. I’ve made a cranberry syrup just to add some freshness to the more heavy flavours in the cake. This dessert is perfect after a festive dinner or to serve on a hot summer day. My guest loved this cake and it was gone in a second! I found this recipe in a Food & Wine magazine and I just ha to share it with you here on my blog with a few of my own changes.

Cinnamon-roll waffles

cinnamon roll waffle kanelbulle våfflor delliedelicious
I know, it sounds amazing! And it is! Two delicious things made into one awesome treat topped with sweet icing. Sounds like heaven to me… As I have written in another post it’s that time of year when everyone in Sweden eats waffles. Why? It’s the Waffle Day! Every year the 25th of march we eat as many waffles as we can. We eat them with whipped cream and jam (raspberry, strawberry or mulberry).
But since I live in Norway now I tend to eat more waffles than I would’ve if I still lived in Sweden. Here in Norway they eat waffles almost every Friday, it’s crazy (in a good way, of course!)! But here they don’t eat their waffles like we do in Sweden. They have butter and brunost (brown cheese) on them. When I had my first look at this strange combo I was really sceptic. But I tried it, and it was so delicious! So you can have your waffles any way you want, everyone has their own favourite batter and/or topping. That’s why I’ve decided to post a non-traditional waffle recipe. Cinnamon-roll Waffles! First you make your cinnamon-rolls and then you bake them in your waffle iron. It sounds easy, I know! And it is! So why not spice this day up with a little bit of non-traditional deliciousness?

You can fill your Danish pastries with lots of different things. But I decided to make a raspberry filling. It’s my favourite. And I used raspberries that me and my sister picked in the forest last summer.

Last day of my passionfruit week is here. I really hope that you’ve found some inspiration for the use of passionfruit. I brought you some classics, such as flummery, and something fusion like, such as passionfruit viniagrette. But I thought that I’ll finish this week of with something I love – cupcakes! Passionfruit cupcakes with a passionfruit buttercream frosting. Sounds delicious? I know! And they are! They’re fresh and has a great texture. 
I decided, since Easter’s coming up, that I’d decorate them Easter style. So I colored the buttercream green and piped it to the cupcakes and used some sugar flowers for decoration. The soil is oreos that I’ve crushed. And finally I’ve made the bunny in fondant. Theese cupcakes will look great as a centrepiece during your Easter celebration, or you can give them away as an Easter gift.  Read more

Passionfruit Flummery

It’s saturday and this week of passion is nearly over, but I still got some delicious passionfruit recipes I’d like to share with you. There’s an old dessert that I’ve been very curious about so I decided that this week is perfect for just that. Flummery is a dessert that goes waaay back, to the 18th century. Many countries has different ways of making it, but I decided to go with a english version. It’s kind of like a pudding and kind of like a mousse, and it tastes delicious! You can flavour your flummery with whatever you want. I have, of course, chosen to flavour mine with passionfruit. I serve it with a dollop of cream and some ginger snap crumbs to add a little bit of texture. Read more
