  • Rye & oat pancakes

    • ccav on March 23, 2020

      Best pancakes I have ever made! Normally not a big pancake lover but these are light and fluffy, with a nutty flavor. Used a locally grown rye flour and rolled oats. Subbed yogurt for the buttermilk. Great on their own in place of toast with butter, or with the usual pancake toppings.

    • Lepa on December 06, 2021

      I made these because my family wanted pancakes but I didn't have any all purpose flour. I thought they were a bit too dense and sweet (I included the suggested chocolate chips). They burned on the outside before the middles were cooked.

  • Swedish plätt pancakes

    • Potterhill on December 21, 2019

      Made today for brunch. Found muffin top pans. Baked them in the oven at 500. Wasn’t sure the pans would tolerate being used on the stovetop and certainly didn’t fit the burners in any case. Worked a charm. We loved them.

    • mjes on May 10, 2018

      Two decades ago I gave my niece a Nordic pancake pan. Her small boys soon would not eat pancakes made any other way. So I was delighted to find this adult dessert pancake recipe to take her family down memory lane. I prefer to use a mixture of barley flour and all-purpose wheat flour but that reflects my Northern Finland heritage. I gave people their choice between cloudberry or lingonberry jam. Later in the summer, I'll use sweetened wild huckleberries. This is definitely a winner.

  • Rye & banana bread

    • Foodycat on May 14, 2019

      I used a rye and spelt flour blend instead of mixing rye and plain flour, so I added 1/4 tsp of baking powder to compensate. And I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon because I wasn't going to make the cinnamon butter to accompany it. Delicious! Lighter than I expected and very moist.

    • Lepa on October 29, 2019

      This is good but the baking time is way off. The recipe says 30 minutes but even after 50 it was still raw in the middle. I would recommend 55-60 minutes. This isn't too sweet and has a lovely, rich taste. We ate it with the recommended cinnamon butter and that provided the perfect sweet boost.

  • Skagenröra open sandwiches

    • Lepa on November 05, 2019

      This is an easy and delicious recipe for toast Skagen! We ate it on white bread (which is how we ate it in Sweden) with microsprouts for the greens.

  • Hot-smoked trout open sandwiches with dill & apple

    • Lepa on May 27, 2021

      This is a fantastic sandwich. The tart cucumber, dill and apple salad complements the cream cheese and rich fish perfectly. My 8 year old son said this was the best dinner he ate all year.

  • Dill pesto potato salad

    • Lepa on November 05, 2019

      This is delicious! I have never tried dill pesto before but it is great, especially with potatoes. I used parmesan for the cheese.

  • Easy new potato & dill salad

    • Lepa on September 04, 2019

      This is a a fine salad but not what I was in the mood for. It's tangy and zippy and would probably make good leftovers.

  • Warm summer potatoes

    • Lepa on August 18, 2020

      This is good and simple but not very exciting.

  • Basic bun dough

    • Lepa on September 28, 2019

      This bun dough is amazing - flavorful, tender, rich and moist. I used it for cinnamon buns and it was shockingly good.

  • Curried cauliflower & rye grain salad

    • mjes on May 10, 2018

      For the cooked grain, rye, pearl barley or spelt are specifically mentioned although the recipe is not limited to these grains. Naturally, I chose pearl barley for trying the recipe; I will definitely repeat with rye. I went light on the raisins but see where others might want a bit more. I used a French feta as that is what I had on hand. I assumed that mild curry meant something like Sharwood's Mild Curry Powder. The roasted, curried cauliflower is delicious in its own right; add to a grain and feta salad with a very simple lemon-oil dressing turns out to be inspired.

Publishers Text

Bronte Aurell, owner of the ScandiKitchen Cafe in London, brings her famous flair to over 65 Scandinavian-style recipes that perfectly capture the joy of summer eating.

In the warmer months we crave food that is lighter and nourishing. Scandinavians do summer food so well—wholesome, flavorsome, simple yet sumptuous to look at—it is the essence of "lagom" or balance, with everything in moderation. For some Scandi balance into your summer meals try tempting breakfasts such as Cinnamon Bun French Toast. Sharing plates such as Smoked Mackerel Rillettes with Rye Crisps are ideal for grazing, while satisfying larger plates include Danish Plaice with Remoulade. All-important cake and fika include a Midsommer Strawberry Cake, and a classic Sourdough Rye is on offer in the breads chapter. Delicious desserts include a Swedish Mess with Cloudberries. Also included are Bronte’s fascinating insights into Scandinavian summer traditions and celebrations.
