Now we mix this mixture until it becomes hard and thick.

20170228_175308.jpg

Next we start mixing in 200 grams of coconut flour slowly and make sure we don’t liquify the mixture too much.

20170228_175826.jpg

Next we prepare our baking try on which we put some parchment paper.

20170228_180202.jpg

The only thing left to do is to create the kisses. We do that by grabing a piping bag and filling it up with the mixture we made a few minutes earlier. Now we jsut start making shapes looking similar to this.

20170228_180944.jpg

We put this baking tray in the oven for 20 minutes on 150°C ( 302 Fahrenheit) and the coconut kisses are ready to eat.

Enjoy this very simple dessert.

Doughnuts

List of ingredients:

  • 1 kg of flour
  • 1 cube of yeast
  • 1 package of baking powder
  • 1/2 l of milk
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 60 grams of sugar
  • 1 package of sugar with vanilla
  • 1 dl of oil (+ 1.5 liters for frying)
  • 1/2 dl of rum
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 juice of a lemon
  • filling of choice
  • Powdered sugar

20170226_111055

We start off by preparing yeast. We do that by crumbling 1 cube of yeast and adding to it a bit of sugar, flour and milk but don’t exaggerate with the amount. And we set this mixture next to something hot. In my case I set it next to the fireplace so it will rise quicker.

20170226_111321.jpg20170226_111330.jpg20170226_111337.jpg20170226_111346

Now we start preparing the dough. First grab a big bowl and put all 7 egg yolks in it comined with 60 grams of sugar.20170226_111739

20170226_111806.jpg

Now we mix it until it starts to turn yellow. Once it turn to this color we can add the rum and oil into our dough mixture and mix it well.

20170226_11204720170226_112116

Next we add the lemon juice and yeast which rested next to a warm place.

20170226_112327.jpg20170226_112416.jpg20170226_112430

And now we start putting in flour and milk in small amounts alternately until we used up the whole flour and milk.20170226_112536

20170226_112650.jpg20170226_112654.jpg20170226_112656.jpg20170226_112723.jpg20170226_11264220170226_112644

After mixing all of our ingredients well the dough should look similar to this.

20170226_114144.jpg

Now we start making balls out of our dough. I suggest using a scale for this and putting 70-100 grams of dough into each ball. After using up all the dough we let the balls rest for 30-45 minutes so they rise.

20170226_11445820170226_11460220170226_11470920170226_123446

After the balls have rested we put oil in a pot about 3 fingers thick and turn the stove on high until the oil gets hot. Then we start putting balls we made 30 minute ago into the pot. Be careful not to put to many balls in it at once.

20170226_12385720170226_125630

Depending on the temperature of the oil the doghnuts will start turning brown and after they get to the color you desire (light brown or dark brown) we flip them.

20170226_130245.jpg

After they have the same color on top as they have on the bottom they are ready to be taken out of the pot.

20170226_12520520170226_125230

Now we grab our filling of choice and start filling them.

20170226_12580220170226_125807

After filling up the doughnuts with our filling of choice we sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and after that they are ready to eat.

20170226_130615.jpg

Enjoy this sweet dessert!

Linzer cookies

List of ingredients:

  • 80 grams of sugar
  • 200 grams of butter (Room temperature)
  • 300 grams of flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Lemon peel
  • Vanilla sugar
  • 250 grams of jam

20170121_183847.jpg

We start off by mixing 200 grams of butter.

20170121_184243

After thats mixed well we add the sugar.

20170121_184322.jpg

And the vanilla sugar.

20170121_184351.jpg

Next we add 300 grams of flour. Be carefull not to put all of it in at once or the mixer might not mix it as good as we’d like it to.

20170121_184447.jpg

Now we continue mixing it until it lookis a little something like this.

20170121_184822.jpg

Now we take it out of the mixer and start mixing it by hand and try to form some sort of a ball. We knead it until it gets a dough like texture.

20170121_185647.jpg20170121_185730

Now we jsut put it back in the mixer for a couple of turns and after it looks like this it is ready to go in the fridge. I suggest putting it in some sort of foil so it doesn’t stick to the fridge.

20170121_18545320170121_18584120170121_185942

Now we let it rest for about half an hour.

After 30 minutes we get our workplace ready. We do that by putting cleaning it and putting flour on it.

20170121_19031020170121_195755

Now we can continue with the next step which is to roll out the dough.

20170121_200454.jpg

Now we grab a cookie cutter and start making circles out of our rolled out dough.

20170121_200631.jpg

In some circles cut out a heart like shape so our cookies

20170121_201326.jpg

Now we put them in the oven that was preheated to 200°C  (392 Fahrenheit) for 8 minutes until they become golden brown color.

20170121_205156.jpg

Now we take a circle cookie that doesn’t have a heart cut out and spread some jam on top of it.

 

20170121_205302.jpg

As for the cookie with the heart cut out we just simply put some powdereded sugar on top of it.

20170121_205208.jpg

The last thing we have to do is to put the cookie with the heart cut out on top of the cookie without the heart cut out.

20170121_205322.jpg

And that’s how you make Linzer cookies.

Pro Tip: Make the cookies right after they come out of the oven so they glue to one another.

Crack Cookies

List of ingredients:

  • 250 grams of coconut flour
  • 120 grams of cocoa ( I used 2 different types of cocoa but that is just personal preference)
  • 100 grams of crushed nuts
  • 250 grams of powdered sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 egg yolks
  • extra powdered sugar (cca. 100 grams)

20161204_123710.jpg

First we mix all 3 egg yolks.

20161204_123906.jpg

After this is mixed we start adding 250 grams of powdered sugar.

20161204_123938.jpg

Next we start putting in the cocoa powder.

20161204_124049.jpg

We then follow up with 250 grams of crushed nuts.

20161204_124307.jpg

And that leaves us with only the coconut flour and egg whites. First we are going to put in all 250 grams of cocnut flour. While that is mixing well we can take that time to beat up the egg whites.

20161204_12450020161204_124910

Last but certainly not least we mix in the beaten up egg whites ino our mixture. I’d recommend using a whisk for this so we do not ruin the properties of beaten up egg whites.

20161204_125153.jpg

Bonus tip: Mix in the beaten up egg whites by only lifting up the mixture and putting it on top of the beaten up egg whites and not actually whisking it because then we would be doing the same thing a mixer is doing it.

20161204_125602.jpg

Now we can prepare to get our hands “dirty”. We must prepare a baking tray which is covered with a layer of parchment paper so that our cookies won’t stick to it. We need to also get ourselves a plate in which we have 100 or so grams of powdered sugar so we can roll our crack cookies into it.

20161204_125751.jpg

Now we finally start making little ball shapped cookies and rolling them over some powdered sugar.

20161204_12583020161204_130008.jpg

After some time and effort our baking tray should be looking a little something like this.

20161204_131310.jpg

You should also make sure that you do not put them too close to one another since they rise in the oven.

They make at around 180 °C ( 356 Fahrenheit) for 5-7 minutes. I wouldn’t recommend any more than that since they easily burn.

I decided so serve them up with a cup of tea since that combination is to die for.

20161204_201432.jpg

Marble Cake

List of ingredients:

  • 250g of butter
  • 500g of sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 sugar with vanilla exract
  • 1 baking powder
  • 500g of flour
  • 1,5dl of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of rum
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

20161119_175932.jpg

We start off by putting 250 grams of butter into a mixing bowl and mix it well.

20161119_180338.jpg

After we get a nice consistency we start adding all of the sugar. However we must be carefull not to put all of it in at once because that way the texture will get ruined since the mixer won’t be able to mix it very well.

20161119_180505.jpg

Next we add in 4 egg yolks and start mixing it.

20161119_180535.jpg

Next we put in 3 tablespoons of rum.

20161119_180731.jpg

After there is no more liquid left from rum we can put in 1,5dl of milk.

20161119_180900.jpg

Now that the milk is fully mixed it we can go onto the next step. And that is to put in 500 grams of flour. And  once again we must do the same exact thing we did with the sugar for obvious reasons.

20161119_181211.jpg

And while the flour is mixing we can beat up 4 egg whites and add them to our mixture so it gets softer. But now we can no longer continue with a mixer since that would ruin the beaten egg whites and have to use a whisk and do it the “old fashioned” way.

20161119_182004.jpg20161119_182258

Next we choose our baking mold andput in some parchment paper so that the Marble Cake doesn’t stick to it. But do not put in all of the mixture, put in only half or so depending on how much chocolate you want in your dessert.

20161119_18233420161119_182512

And we put in 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder in the rest of the mixure and mix it until the cocoa powdfer is fully mixed into the batter.

20161119_18260620161119_183041

Now we only need to put the brown batter on top of the yellow one.

20161119_183419.jpg

Now we just need to put it in the oven at 180°C ( 356 Fahrenheit) for 75-90 minutes.

20161119_221425.jpg

Bonus tip:

To make it even prettier and yummier you can put some powdered sugar on top.

20161119_221521.jpg

All there is left to do is to cut it into squares and serve them on a plate.
