Yesterday I went to Copenhagen, Denmark…and with me on my way back I bought some Danish pastries :-) My friend Hana has praised the Danish drømmekage (dreamcake) and linse (shortbread cookie with cream filling) so I found a bakery where I bought them and a classic wienerbrød (Danish pastry). I’ve baked the dreamcake several times at home before and no wonder why they call it dreamcake..it tastes like a dream. It’s like a spongecake with a topping of coconut flakes and farine sugar…heavenly delicious! When I got back to my moms place later in the evening we enojoyed the pastries I had bought with a cup of tea :-)

Ever since I was a child I’ve loved the pastries in Denmark, I used to go there often when I was living in the south of Sweden, takes only 20 minutes by train over the bridge so it’s not that far at all. They really know how to make delicious pastries and it’s the closest I can get to something that is comparable with French pastries in Scandinavia. Even though they don’t bake the same things..I can feel they have the same passion when it comes to making delicious pastries and that does it ALL.
