Quick Lavender Cakes

12 Jan

This morning we were working on our project at my place (presentation tomorrow!) and I did some caramel-cakes with Lavender to keep the study motivation up. This is a recipe I often use when I need to bake something really tasty quick.

You need this:

100 g butter

1 dl sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 tablespoon syrup

2,5 dl flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons dried Lavender

 

First mix room-tempered butter and sugar (easy with an electricity whisk) and then add the rest of the ingredients. Divide the batter into 3 pieces and roll each piece into a roll in the same length as your tin. Place the rolls on the tin and use a fork to make patterns in them. Bake for about 10 minutes in a 175°C-hot oven. Cut them into pieces when they are still hot and soft.

Don’t worry they look small unbaked on the tin, they will expand in the oven. 

Today I used Lavender, but they are good natural too. And it’s also tasty to change the Lavender to Peppermint or Rosemary.

Yum!

Idag jobbade vi på vårt projekt hemma hos mig på förmiddagen. För att hålla studiemotivationen uppe bakade jag kolakakor med lavendel, mycket gott!

Kind Regards, the Forest

6 Jan

Kind Regards the Forest is a University-project that aims for marketing the forest as an available outing target. We are studying marketing and the task is to market something within the green area and my group felt for market something non-profit. It feels good to use this energy and time on something that can live on even after the project officially is over. Part of our project is a Facebook-page that works as a board for the forest where people can post photos, tips and share knowledge. The basic idea of this project is that what you like you care for. And the forest needs some tending and attention.

Winter-poster. Directly translated: Go to the Forest! (In Swedish this is a play with words used as a mild version of “go to hell” while it stills means simply “go to the forest”). Mvh Skogen means KR the Forest and the fineprint says: “The Forest’s own board. Do you want to know more? Like “Mvh Skogen” on Facebook. See you!”

Summer-poster. The same text but with Welcome! (Välkommen!) instead. 

My desk right now, ready to spread the information. 

Apart from putting posters up we are also planning a guerilla-marketing campaign. I’ll show you pictures from that one next week – our project-presentation is due next Friday. Making this project global would be wonderful so please press “like” on our page “Mvh Skogen” and contribute to the board of the forest.

Here’s a link to our page: Mvh Skogen

Thank you and talk to you soon again!
