Kammerjunkere - Prep time: 1 hr - 150 pieces




1 vanilla pod

250 g butter

100 g sugar

1 egg

1 dl milk

500 g flour

1 ts. baking powder

Zest from 1 lemon

How to:

Scrape the vanilla corns out. Put the butter and suger in a bowl and stir well together with the vanilla corns. Now add the egg and then the milk and stir. Finally you add the flour and the baking powder together with the lemon zest. Stir the dough well into an even mass.


Put the dough on a table with flour and part in in 10 pieces. Role the 10 pieces into 10 cm long "sausages" and cut into 1 cm pieces. Make them into little balls and put on the baking sheet. They will rise so keep a bit of space between them.


Bake the kammerjunkere at 180 degrees for apprx. 12-15 min. – until they are crisp and golden.

Pepper Nuts

Pepper nuts are traditional cookies baked in December

- securing the Christmas hygge -

100 - 130 pcs / 15 min.




125 g sugar

125 g of soft butter

1/2 dl cream (preferably whipping cream)

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper

1/2 teaspoon cardamom

(possibly a little finely chopped orange peel from

an organic orange)

1 teaspoon baking soda

250 g flour

How to:


Whip butter and sugar well together and then add the cream at low speed.


Stir all dry ingredients together in a bowl and then add to the bowl with the wet ingredients.


Knead the dough for a little bit - just until the Pepper Nuts are firm and easy to shape and knead together.


Pepper nuts are rolled into round ‘balls’ and placed close to each other on a baking sheet with baking paper - they will elevate slightly when baking.


Bake at 200 degrees for about 8-10 minutes - keep an eye on them because ovens are different and maybe they need a minute more or less in your oven. They should only be golden.

Pancakes - The Danish way

Pancakes in Denmark are flat and crisp

- Kia & Elisabeth bakes pancakes (almost) every weekend -

12 pcs / 20 min.



125 g. flour

3 tablespoons sugar

1 vanilla Rod

1/2 tsp cardamom

3 eggs

1 table spoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice

3 dl. milk

Butter for frying

How to:


Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl with a hand-mixer and then let the dough rest for a minimum of 20 minutes in the fridge.


Melt a little butter and oil in a frying pan and when the pan is warm you fry the pancakes on both sides until they have a beautiful nice color and are crispy on the edges.

In Denmark it is very ‘hyggeligt’ (yes, you can use the word ‘hygge’ as a noun and a verb) to bake and eat pancakes together.


We fill them with jam, sugar, ice cream, freshly squeezed lemon juice, fresh fruit etc. Whichever filling, that makes you happy.
