I wasn't going to participate in the Dessert Round Up, cause I didn't think I'd made that many dessert recipes this past year.
And then I counted them up.
I had made a few sweet things, well, more than a few actually.
I got to try some new techniques, new recipes, and revisit some old favourites.
Here are just a few:
I made these back in February, and I still think they are a fun thing to do.
Nutty Chocolately Coconut Marshmallows
And then there was the Bread Pudding I made from some leftover Soda Bread.
Rødgrød med Fløde
My Danish side came out one day when I found some Rhubarb in the store and I had to make this.
And then there was also this made from Rhubarb as well.
Rhubarb pudding. See how pretty it looked? I just remembered I still have a little left in the freezer, hmmm, I wonder how it will go with some æbleskiver?
I attempted to recreate a recipe for a friend and judging by how eagerly everyone ate it, I guess it was a success.
Fresh Apple Cake with Caramel Frosting
And I have to admit it did taste good. Messy, but good.
And I finally tried my hand at a real Kringle. And it was a success. But I'm so going to need to practice making more of them...
OK, so I'm looking for an excuse to make more, can't just do it for myself.
Or can I?
I've been making Banana Pudding for a few years now, cause it's one of the most popular desserts here in the south and everyone needs a fool proof Banana Pudding recipe. Mine isn't fool proof yet, I'm still tinkering with it.
I even made my self a Kiksekage for my birthday this year.
Warning on this though, if you don't like rich chocolate, don't make it.
It is so rich and so good, and I think I need to make this again, soon.
And since I like to experiment in the kitchen I even tried my hand at some Gluten Free Cream Puffs.
You know, they were actually very good. And they all got eaten that day.
A friend gave me some lovely Persimmons and I tried making a Nutty Persimmon Cake from them. Could not believe how good it was.
And last but not least, and even though the bird and I ate all of them, I think there 4 in all, but... I'm planning on making these again and sharing them next time, and not just with the bird either.
Cranberry Cream Cheese Tarts
Just a few of the goodies I made this past year, and shared, mostly, but it's all good.
I had fun in the kitchen.
