Chocolate Meringue birthday cake

I’m a big meringue and chocolate lover so this is the perfect birthday cake for someone like me or my daughter. This is what she ordered for her birthday. It is both delicious, and except making the meringue the rest goes really fast! But don’t tell anyone;)


  • 9 egg whites
  • 5,25 dl granulated sugar (2,1 cup)
  • 300 gram chocolate pieces, I used a Marabou Daim that I had crushed into small pieces. (1 cup)
  • 3 table spoons cacao


  • Heat oven to 125 C (250F)
  • Line 2 flat baking sheets with non stick liner or baking paper.
  • Whisk the egg whites and granulated sugar until stiff. It should stand up when you are lifting the blades.
  • Add the chocolate pieces and the cacao. Stir so that it all blends together.
  • Divide the mixture on the 2 baking sheets, and spread into circles.
  • Bake for 1,5 hour and then turn the oven of and leave them there until you wan’t to use them. Preferably over night, or at least for some hours before decorating the cake.


  • 2-2,5 dl (1 cup) whisked cream, fill the middle layer with this.
  • 4 dl (1,5 cup) whipped cream
  • Add 3 tablespoons Nutella and stir until it is like a mousse.
  • Spread the chocolate mousse on top of the cake.
  • Grate some chocolate all overthe cake. And done!
  • You could add some strawberries, raspberry or bananas on top or inside the cake. It is really good too!

Forgotten strawberries, elderflower curd and frozen herbs


Us Northerners are rather good at storing foods, fruits and leftovers in the freezer. 67 % of us do it. But the freezer should not be- come a graveyard for the things we do not want to consume right now, but just a stop along the way towards something tasty. Therefore, this dish has frozen forgotten strawberries and paste made from an entire lemon. Not just the juice or the zest. Läs mer

Summer cake

IMG_9137My friend brought all the ingredients to make a cake today! Because it was Emma’s nameday, and both our daughters are named Emma.

So a meringue base, whipped cream mixed with greek yoghurt, vanilla and raspberry inside, topped with whisked cream and strawberries. And some crushed dry roasted almonds.
