Happy Almost Holidays Everyone!!! I know it, once again, has been some time, but as usual Real Life gets in the way of Blog Life :(
I am back from Spain, my boyfriend is back from Spain as well, I have begun my new job as a phd-student, I have had to call in sick for the first time at my new job (I hate being sick :( can it go away now please) and my Christmas spirit is tingling!
So, I am still a bit sick, it appears to be a stubborn cold, refusing to let go. Therefore, I won’t be bringing any new recipes today, however I will show a small tutorial on how to do a gingerbread Christmas decoration, that I made Continue Reading…
Hello again :) As you may be aware, I am still in Spain (follow my progress at www.frkoverballe.dk).
As I mentioned in my last post, our kitchen here is not as well stocked as I am used to, and I am sorry to say this is limiting my desire to bake things. I am trying to turn it around, but you may have to bear over Continue Reading…
So, long time no post, once again… Since my last post, I have finished my thesis (yay!) and left for San Sebastian in Spain! You can follow my Spanish endeavours here.
Now, I figured I would get to bake a lot while here, however it proves more difficult than expected. First of all, my handmixer is much missed. Of course, it is entirely possible to bake without a handmixer, but frosting and Continue Reading…
I don’t really want to talk about my thesis. When people ask me how my work is going, I answer “mweh”. The thing is, I have three weeks left before handing it in, and I go from “I-am-freaking-out-I-will-never-finish-in-time” to “it’ll-be-fine”, but mostly I just want to be done. I want to be finished, I want to defend it, and then I want to go to Spain. And read, take photographs, cook, bake, write fun stuff, read and play computer games. So, let’s nok talk about the thesis. Lets talk about cake!
So, a late night update, with pictures from back in May, where I was asked to create a periodic table in cupcakes, for the Chemistry Department Gala Ball. Let me begin with saying that it was an awesome party! The food was great, the live band Continue Reading…
Yes, yes, I know, I’m bordering on pathetic here… It seems like all my last posts have been all apologies for not writing more posts. So let me first show you a pretty Picture of a cake, and then I’ll tell you what I have been up to since last time?
A perfect tursday evening. My boyfriend watching football (or soccer, if you happen to be American), me spamming him with random crap from the internet (cats, anyone??) – ah, romance :) (appearantly, we are not winning the game at the moment…)
So I have neglected my blog, but I made brownies, so we’re good, right? Continue Reading…
I know. I know. Please don’t hate me, I really have wanted to be up to date with my blogging! But then exams happened, and life happened and I got sick… So let’s get up to date, shall we?
Exams are passed! Yay! I have begun working as a lab instructor on a fist year course in inorganic chemistry, also fun :) I have been a substitute teacher in the same course, in place of a friend who went two weeks to Japan (nope, not jealous. not a bit. at all.). Despite not being in Japan, I still had a lot of fun trying to be a teacher! December is here, meaning Christmas, presents and snow!!! (and yes, we do have snow, and yes, I am ridiculously fond of snow)
On the not-yay part I can’t seem to get rid of my stupid Cold and coughing. not yay at all.
Mix all the ingredients for the crust, until a crumbly dough forms. Line a 25×35 cm baking dish with parchment paper and spread/press the dough crumbs evenly in the pan. Bake at 200 degrees for approximately 15 minutes until just set.
Meanwhile chop the chocolate very finely, and prepare the filling by beating the egg whites lightly with the sugar and vanilla, until just frothy, and fold in the flour and coconut.
When removing the crust from the oven, sprinkle over the chocolate, let it melt slightly and spread evenly with a spatula. Now drop spoonfuls of the filling over the chocolate, forming an even layer (or at least relatively even).
Place back in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the coconut is golden and looks delicious! Let cool and slice into bars with a large knife!
