Mix together to a batter. Bake at 175 degrees for about 15 - 20 minutes.
Test with a stick: Dry = ready!
Lovely chocolate drink
Spicy chocolate drink.
Let optional milk (oat, rice, soy or cow) simmer gently with various spices such as star anise, clove, cinnamon stick and the whole cardamom seeds.
Strain off the spices and stir in the melted chocolate.
Drink and enjoy!
Chocolate cake with cashew cream
Chocolate, nuts and fruit become a cake that does not need to be baked.
Melt 1 dl raw cocoa gently in a water bath. Core 5 dates, preferably medjoul (extra large dates) and put in a mixer together with ½ dl cashews, 6 incabär, 2 tablespoons agave syrup and 1 dl bovetecrunch (Voltaire's own mixture) or take 1 dl extra cashews or any other good nut.
Mix into a batter and press the batter into a mold. Serve with cardamom andcashew cream (see below) and a piece Mango, so crazy good!
Cashew cream with cardamom
Mixa ½ dl cashews together with freshly ground cardamom, a splash agave syrup and ¾ dl water (or so much that the knives spin).
Mix to a smooth cream.
Crispy IS good
Yummy crackers with chopped hazelnuts.
How to use knäckbräck. Melt 2 dl sugar carefully in a thick-bottomed saucepan and add 500 grams butter and 500 grams honey. Let it boil together. Do the crack trick to check when it is ready (pick up some crack batter and shape a ball - if it solidifies, it is ready).
Pour the batter onto a baking sheet. Pour over 2 dl coarsely chopped hazelnuts. Allow to solidify and then cut into squares.
Chocolate delicious in one go!
Mix ½ dl agave syrup (available in health food stores) with 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder. Clear!
Mulled wine in a bag as a gift
Mix 2 star anise, 4 goji berries, 2 cinnamon sticks, 3 cloves, 2 cardamom capsules and a small fist raisin - a perfect mixture to season the mulled wine with.
Put in a nice bag and you have a good gift!
I love looking at this site when I am bored. Vegetable decorations in the Japanese way - so delicious! bento.com/fexp-carving-zucc.html
Raw cocoa: (raw chocolate that is not heated) contains lots of minerals, vitamins and anti-
oxidants. Real superfood!
