Layered cake with chocolate and raspberries
The decoration of this failed a bit but the taste is great. Letting it rest in the fridge for a few hours before serving does not hurt it.

The Cake
380g Sugar
3 Eggs
150g Butter
2tsp Vanilla powder
80g Cocoa powder
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda
2½dl Milk
150g flour 
A bit of salt

The chocolate filling
200g Melted Sugar
1½-2dl Creme Fraiche (you can add more or less depending on preference)

The raspberry filling 
1½dl Raspberry pure (boiled raspberries)
6sp Sugar 
1 leaf of gelatin 
1-1½sp Hot water

The whipped cream
1½dl Cream
1tsp Vanilla
1tsp sugar

The cake: Mix the eggs and the sugar until the liquid becomes light and fluffy. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients - the flour should be last, don’t mix for too long once it is in. Bake in the oven at 170 Degrees Celsius for about 30min.

Chocolate filling: Melt the chocolate. Pour the creme fraiche into the chocolate a little at the time while stirring. Do not pour the chocolate in to the creme fraiche (especially if it is cold), this might make the mixture grainy.

Rapsberry filling: Mix in the sugar while the raspberry is boiling. Leave the leaf gelatin in cold water for 10min - den take it out of the water and mix it with the warm water until the gelatin is completely melted then pour it into the raspberry pure and stir. Let it cool till it start stiffening before using (it should not be completely stiff)

KANELSNURRER / CINNAMON TWISTS
We’re back with another goodie from Scandinavia, this time from Norway. Go on, try and pronounce their name. Basically these are cinnamon buns with a twist…witty, I know. But as pretty as they look, they’re also pretty easy to make. This recipe yields around 18.

For the dough:

  • 50 g. yeast (cake/solid)
  • 5 dl. milk
  • 100 g. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cardamom (I chose to omit this, as cardamom is the bane of my existence, but traditionally this is a must)
  • 1 egg
  • 125 melted butter
  • 800 g. flour

For the filling:

  • 50 g. melted butter
  • Cinnamon and sugar, as much or little as you like, but try not to go overboard

Heat the milk until lukewarm, then crumble the yeast into into it and let it dissolve. Add sugar, salt, cardamom and the egg, mix well. Add the melted butter and flour, then mix the dough. If it’s still too sticky, add more flour, but it should still be a little sticky when you’re done. Leave it to rise for 45 minutes.
Once the dough has risen, divide it into two. Roll out both doughs to rectangles and brush with melted butter, then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Fold the doughs over themselves so the cinnamon-sugar filling is fully covered and sandwiched between the halves of dough. Use a pizza cutter to cut the doughs into strips about 3 cm. wide, then use it to cut up the middle of the strips, leaving only the end of it. One by one, twist the strips and wrap them around themselves so it forms a little twisty bun. Leave to rise for 30 minutes, and heat the oven to 230 degrees (celsius). I baked mine for around 12 minutes, but keep checking on them to determine whether they need more or less.

Vegan Chilli Recipe! 
I’ve been asked for the recipe for this a few times so i thought i’d have a crack at typing it up. 
I usually just make it up as I go along and use my instincts for quantities so idk hope this is ok! serves 2 or 3 people
You Will Need
About 200g or 1 cup ready to cook red lentils
A can of kidney beans
A can of chopped tomatoes
tomato purée
1 medium onion
1 large garlic clove
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of cinnamon or mixed spices
Hot chilli powder, i put in 2 teaspoons but adjust for your own tastes!
olive oil
optional - a bell pepper, green looks nice!
Directions
chop and fry the onion and garlic in some olive oil till golden
add in the cinnamon and cumin and coat the onion and garlic (add pepper now if u want it)
after a minute or so add in the lentils and cook for 2 mins, give it a few stirs to distribute onions and spices evenly
add in chopped tomatoes, a generous squeeze of purée, beans and chilli powder
stir everything well and then add just enough boiling water to cover the lentils, put the lid on the pot and leave it for half an hour or so.
To Serve
I like to serve this with avocado, boiled rice and chopped coriander/cilantro
This also goes well with it http://www.cookingclassy.com/2014/06/avocado-cilantro-lime-rice
Some more ideas are corn on the cob, potato wedges or you could even put it in burritos or something!
