Danish summer marzipan cake with strawberries and cream

This cake is my take of a traditional Danish summer cake with strawberries, cream and marzipan. Its one of my favorite things to eat in the summer, and I have to have it at least a couple of times each summer. The combination of baked marzipan cake, a dark chocolate, sweet cream and fresh strawberry is just so delicious and it’s difficult to only eat one piece. This past weekend we visited my parents for a few days and I decided to make this strawberry cake for dessert. And it was a winner, and not the last time I make it this summer. Yum I love it and I love summer!

Earl Grey Cupcakes – regular and mini versions

A good cup of tea and a freshly baked cupcake go hand in hand. So when I found a recipe for Earl Grey infused cupcakes I had to try them out. And they did not disappoint. They are light and fluffy and with a light flavor of earl grey tea. From this batch I baked 12 mini cupcakes and 12 regular cupcakes. It is the first time I baked mini cupcakes, but not the last. They are just the cutest and perfect little cakes you can eat in one or two bites. Yum!

Nilssons Ambrosia – One Year Today!!!

    One year ago today, I posted my very first recipe on Nilssons Ambrosia. I had been reading a bunch of food and lifestyle blogs for a while and after a bit of encouragement from my boyfriend, I decided to start my very own food blog. And I am so so happy that I did. I have had so much fun this past year, cooking food, preparing blog posts and taking lots of pictures. At first it was a blog in Danish, but I soon decided to change it to English. And when I did, I was amazed at how many different countries have visited my little food blog. I love it! I have lots of plans for new...

Potato and Leek Soup with Oven-Fried Bacon

Yes I know that its summer, but as we have found out here at home, that doesn’t mean that you can’t catch a cold. I’m hoping that it goes away very very fast. Being sick in the summer – especially on your vacation – just sucks. So I made a pot of hot and creamy potato and leek soup, hoping that the cold will be gone soon! Luckily its super easy to make. There are not too many ingredients but the soup is still full of flavor. I fried the bacon in the oven because its just easier and a lot less messy. 

Red Velvet Cupcakes

The first time I tried a piece of red velvet cake was when I lived in New York. It was from a lovely little coffee shop around the corner from my apartment on East 4th street. And I loved it. It was pretty and delicious at the same time. Uhh they also had the best Iced Chai Latte in the world! That’s definitely on my list of things to enjoy whenever I get back to New York. Oh how I miss it! Anyway,- the red velvet cup cakes. I found this recipe in my favorite cake recipe book form Hummingbird Bakery. We were invited to a 4th of July party in the park by some of Sillas’ good friends he’s...
