The Local _ Cooking _ I love Cooking/baking!

Posted by: Crazy.Lee 7.Nov.2012, 09:41 AM

I just moved here from South Africa and I have a wonderful gift to bake and cook but not so great with translating. Every time we go to the supermarket I see these really good looking foods on the food Magazines but I don't understand a word!
Any one with some good Swedish recipes, I would love it if you could share them with me!
What ever you have to share I will appieciate it.
Please try to include a picture if you can! wink.gif

Feel free to add links to recipes if you know a good web page.

Any one looking for South African food recipes I will be happy to share!! Just let me know.

Swedish recipes aren't all too hard to pick up. It's also a good way to practice your Swedish! smile.gif

I have always been very curious about what you call this in South Africa. Is it called self-raising flour or self-rising flour and is it readily available?

Jip it is that's the South African version smile.gif

The absolute *bible* of Swedish baking is the book "sju sorters kakor" that has been republished many times since it was first published in 1945

However this book that covers all types of cakes, cookies, buns, rusks and sweet breads is available is English from uk amazon- you can take a look inside online

Doesn't look like there was a flour debate :-(

Posted by: Gamla Hälsingebock 16.Jan.2017, 04:25 PM

A bit of one upmanship word play...As it were...
