Brownie caramel cookies and a baby

So! Three months since my last post, and the main news is the baby. Our little T was born May 31st (I’ll spare you the details) and has been keeping us busy since – I am writing this, with him half asleep on my torso. He is healthy, eats and sleeps, and we really can’t complain, but he does fill our days! I am incredibly privileged that my husband has taken paternity leave the first nine weeks after the birth, it is so great being two people with an infant.

But, my baking has been suffering, I have not baked since little T got here, so I have found a great recipe in the archives, from back when the blog was in Danish (I have a stash of old recipes I never got around to translating).

Please apologize the crappy, “pre-dSLR camera and food photography knowledge” picture!


60 g flour

30 g cocoa powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

50 g dark chocolate, for melting

50 g chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (dark, milk or white as you prefer)

½ dl caramel pieces

50 g butter

150 g sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla sugar


Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

Melt the butter with the chocolate and mix in egg, sugar and vanilla sugar. Fold in the flour mixture and the chocolate chips and caramel pieces.

Use two teaspoons to make walnut-size “blobs” on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. The cookies spread a lot and will still be soft when removed from the oven, move/drag the parchment to a cooling rack and let cool.
