The traditional Swedish dish, kroppkaka

Middag: hemlagade kroppkakor


I cooked eight pieces of the Swedish traditional dish (and one of my favorite dishes) Kroppkaka yesterday. I ate two for dinner yesterday, two for lunch today and three for dinner today. Of course, I ate them like this, with lingonberry jam and butter. If you would like to try it, here is a recipe for you.

45 minutes, 4 portions (or 8 pieces).

  • 500 gram potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 2.5 dl flour
  • 1 onion
  • 100 gram salted pork
  • lingonberry jam, butter and parsil
  1. Boil the potatoes, peel them and then mash the potatoes.
  2. Mix the mashed potatoes with flour, egg and spices fast.
  3. Peel the onion, chop it in small pieces and dice the pork. Then, fry the onion and the pork together in a frying pan.
  4. Form balls/ dumplings out of the mashed potatoes. Make a hole in the middle and fill it with the fried onion-pork mixture. Then, make them tight. (You might need to cover the dumplings with a thin layer of flour again if they are sticky).
  5. Boil the dumplings in a sauce pan with water for 5-6 minutes. The dumplings will float up to the top when they are “done”.
  6. Serve the dish with lingonberry jam, butter and parsil or something else.

I found the recipe here.
Have fun and Bon appetite!


A nice dinner last night


A nice dinner last night

Last night I cooked a really nice dinner; home made hamburgers with potatoes in the oven. It could have been the most tasteful dinner I have had so far at my current address. The best is that I made two portions so I will have the same today for lunch.
