Recipe: White Chocolate and Berry Coconut Mountains

Sometimes a recipe disaster can bring something even more delicious.

Ubiquitous in Sweden, pancakes come in many different forms, thicknesses and sizes. In essence, you just need some flour, eggs, milk, a good pinch of salt and a generous amount of butter to fry them in. These are between American pancakes and French crêpes in size, but with [...]
