It’s my third Wedding Anniversary today and to mark the day, I wanted to make something new. I have been meaning to bake an orange cake since some time and thought it would be the perfect occasion. I referred to a Swedish food store blog for the recipe, but have used only the ingredients I had in my kitchen, as always 🙂
The most beautiful place in Sweden that I have visited so far is Gotland. It is one of Unesco Heritage sites. I can go there any number of times. Everything is so beautiful and serene, water is so clean, the mountains so majestic, the old town has such a vintage feeling. I can go on and on about it. But, the blog is not about Gotland, but food :). Well, I am getting there. This dessert is a specialty of Gotland and is served with a special jam made of salmbär found only in Gotland. However, people in the mainland have it with other kinds of jam such as blueberry jam. But, Gotland’s Saffranspannkaka is very close to people who live in Gotland or have lived there sometime in their life and people like me who love Gotland.
I can never have enough of Britannia little hearts. No matter how many packets I could lay my hands on, I always felt why the hell are they so less. And, after coming to Stockholm, I have been totally deprived of my addictive sugar cookies. I have been craving for and wanted them by hook or by crook. Finally, my continuous search on the Internet yielded fruits. Saw a post with something similar on Pinterest and here I am with the little hearts from my own kitchen.
I and Abhishek love Gajar ka Halwa, we can literally have it any day. But, good carrots are not available all the year round. So what! Beetroots are 🙂 What started as a mere experiment, became our all time favorite. You won’t believe, my sweet jawed husband likes it even more than the gajar ka halwa now.
With the sweet tooth that I and Abhisek have, we need quick fix desserts a lot of times. But, we just cannot do with the ordinary. I mean like always!! Naaah!!!
So, I keep surfing different blogs for yummy desserts and stumbled upon this wonderful yet quick Greek dessert. And, it was love at first sight. It is simple yet exotic. The name says it all 😉
Nand ke anand bhayo, jai kanhaiya laal ki… I wanted to make this dessert on 14th August, my naani’s b’day, as it is her recipe and i have grown up having this. Somehow, I couldn’t make it that day, but it’s never too late, naani ka budday na sahi, krishna ka budday sahi. 🙂 Here is my bread halwa, especially for naani and all my naanka pariwar. Happy Krishna Janamashtmi!
