Dessert

Paleo Blueberry Coffee Cake

Glutenfree, dairyfree and refined sugarfree!

It’s weekend and it’s time for a treat right? I made this paleo blueberry paleo cake on a Saturday evening with my childhood friend, as I planned for us to make it as a nice dessert which I found on Pinterest! There are so many talented people and there are so many delicious recipes to find! However, many times I don’t know where to start cause I find so many recipes I wanna make.. But I finally decided to make this occasion hanging with my friends over dinner to enjoy ourselves. And the day after, on a lazy Sunday morning for breakfast, this cake only got better, so so yummy with yoghurt and more fresh blueberries to it.

The recipe is from “the roasted root”, check her out and if you wanna treat yourself with this cake too, I suggest you click right away to her site now;) https://www.theroastedroot.net/paleo-blueberry-coffee-cake/

Baking with high quality ingredients is essential, therefore I’m really happy with the products from cocosa – https://www.midsona.no/cocosa/. As you see of what ingredients you’ll need for this cake, are coconut flour, coconut sugar (pictured above) and coconut oil. In addition you’ll need almond flour, coconut milk, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon and walnuts. That’s why it’s glutenfree, dairyfree and refined sugarfree!

This cake is super delicious with vanilla ice cream for dessert, or when having it for breakfast the day after with your coffee. Then you should definitely eat it with either Greek yoghurt or plantbased coconut yoghurt if you want it dairyfree.

Enjoy yourself with a healthy and yummy treat guys!

17th of May celebration

I love national day and my beautiful country Norway. Because of my professional tennis career I’ve been many times absent on this day playing a tournament somewhere else in the world. However, this year I got home due to corona and was lucky to celebrate it with my lovely friends and family, making the day a memorable one. I still recall 17th of May from childhood celebrations, full of excitement for what the day would bring. National day is like Christmas Eve, you cannot wait for the day to come. It’s a when you will eat lots of delicious food, (there’s no limit on cakes and ice cream that day) and have social gatherings, play games and walk or look at the children’s parade. It holds a strong tradition and pride. Norwegians are conserved people by culture, but on this day we wave our flags enthusiastically and raise our voices saying hurray with happiness. I believe I love this day because of the expressed joy we have for one another, for our country, for socializing and celebrating over food. You see “champagne breakfast” are one of the traditions of celebration. Here people bring and make foods like smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, berries and not to mention cakes!
