Sunday breakfast with oven pancake

This has been one perfect weekend. Could not have hoped for a better ending to July 2011. On Friday one of my absolute dearest and best friends came for a visit. She lives abroad these days so we rarely get to see each other. We had a great time catching up and then went out for some sangria with my boyfriend and his friend. Good times indeed. On Saturday I got to take out my boyfriend to a Thai restaurant and some ice cream and a movie. We saw Bridesmaids. I both cried and laughed which to me usually is a pretty good sign that it was a good movie. Which it was.  

This morning we were super lazy and didn't get up before after 10 am. I guess that's what Sunday mornings are all about. For breakfast I made us an oven pancake. Haven't made one in such a long time but they are super easy to make and so yummy. Not the most healthy thing to eat of course but hey, every once in a while you can treat yourself. Right?

I used this Swedish recipe but changed it so it was for two people.

1,5 dl wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 dl milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon margarine

Mixed the flour and salt together and then used an electric mixer to mix in the milk. Then mixed in the eggs. Let it swell for about 20-30 minutes. Poured the batter in a greased medium sized pan. Then baked it in the oven for 20 minutes at 225°C. 

While the pancake was in the oven I whipped up some cream to serve with the pancake along with some raspberry jam.

Long time no bake

Wow, it's been nearly two months since I last baked anything. I guess I really have had a busy (fun busy!) summer. Last night I decided to make some muffins and since I had some lemon curd from my recent trip to London in the fridge I wanted to experiment with that a bit. I made muffins with lemon curd and in the middle I put a mix of cream cheese, lemon curd and raspberry jam.

So so yummy! I didn't feel any need of decorating them because they were so moist and delicious on their own.

120 gr margarine
120 gr sugar
2 ecological eggs
250 gr ecological wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
120 ml milk
0,5 teaspoon ecological vanilla powder
about 3 tablespoons lemon curd

lemon curd
cream cheese
raspberry jam

(original recipe taken from here and then made some changes to it) 

Melted margarine in microwave so it was soft.
Mixed sugar in the melted butter with electric mixer.
Then mixed in eggs, milk, baking powder, vanilla, flour, lemon curd one by one.
Made filling by mixing lemon curd, cream cheese and raspberry jam together.
When all was mixed I put a spoonful of the muffin mix in each muffin cup.
Then put a small spoonful of the filling on top of this.
And lastly a spoonful of muffin mix again.

Put them in the oven at 175°C for about 20 minutes.

Summer time and the living is easy

The blog has been quiet.
The main reason: 
it is summer
and I am enjoying it. 
Very much.
Very. A lot. Indeed I am.

(well when I'm not cranky and irritated of course...)

and so are my cats
