Lemon Meringue Cake – Citron & Maräng Kaka

IMG_6113

Lemon and meringue is an unbeatable combo. I am not sure if I’ve ever met anyone who actually doesn’t like lemon and meringue. I have made pies before, but (as some of you know) I am not a big fan of pies. I actually made this cake from a lemon-muffin recipe, baked it in a spring form and then, with help of an icing bag, applied the meringue and baked it again to cook the meringue slightly. Result turned out very pretty, and the cake is perfect for a summer day.

2 + 3 eggs / 2 + 3 ägg 

0.25 cups + 1 tbsp of sugar / 0,6 dl + 1 msk socker 

0,8 cups of flour / 2 dl mjöl

Super Simple Gluten Free Strawberry Tarte

IMG_5971

Lots of snack hacks lately! I must admit that it’s been fun to find a different format of the blog, since after three years it can feel somewhat mundane to stay blogging the same way. Doing something different makes you realize and remember how fun and inspiring the blog actually can be (and that some people actually are reading it… 🙂 ). Spring has finally come to DC, and despite runny eyes and a lot of sneezing (and some claratin) it’s gorgeous out! Also, the times of somewhat mundane fruits and vegetables are coming to an end, and there’s finally AMAZING berries in the stores again. This strawberry tart is super easy to make, yet so beautiful and eye catching! In this recipe, I used whipped cream for the filling, but for a healthier version, you could switch it out for greek yogurt! Happy Baking!
