One sweet morning

March 20, 2013

The results of my first baking experiment was a very sweet breakfast; little vanilla & chocolate cheesecake cupcakes and a coconut milk cake.

The mini cupcakes turned out quite alright, but sadly lacked the WOW-factor.


Probably because I replaced the mascarpone (which I sadly didn’t find in the nearest supermarket) by some kind of vanilla texture which didn’t do the cute little cups justice.

The coconut milk cake was “absolutely delicious” , quoted by my loving husband and I definitely recommend it to anyone! I let the coconut syrup soak in overnight and it turned out to be a gorgeously moist sensation.


All-in-all a rather satisfying experience and definitely worth repeating. I just don’t want to overdo it, or I’ll be blogging about the latest dieting trends very soon.

In the meantime it has been confirmed once more that applying for positions on the Norwegian job-boards is useless, unless the description is in English, as the mails this morning pretty much state the same: read your CV with interest blablabla, Scandinavian language skills blablabla, good luck.

I am going in for a talk at the guiding company next week to at least have something to do during the summer months; meet new people, get to know more about the history of Stavanger and share the knowledge. That doesn’t seem too bad, right?

And by the end of summer, we should be fluent in Norwegian to apply for a permanent job.

The interactive Norwegian cd-rom from the library has brought out the child in me. It has a series of funny little games to remember the basics; it’s a good laugh and it works.

On a more serious note, I’ve found the free courses of NTNU and Pavei a very good way to start. They offer well-structured lessons with grammar, vocab and exercises.

Actually, I’ll have another piece of cake and get back to it!

Have a positive day!
