We will have a very excited one year old this morning... when she wakes up, she will discover her Bestemor is back from Norway. I imagine there'll be a fair bit of screeching and squealing... on both sides!
One of my FAVOURITE things that Magni has passed on to me is her Norwegian Apple Cake... (the other is the Norwegian waffles we made for Father's Day). Ava and I love to whip up an apple cake now and again... it is yum and it is SO easy. It's one of those recipes you can pretty much always throw together, even if you weren't planning on baking - there are no weird or wonderful ingredients!
In the nightmare of the last month, while we were in hospital with Heidi, we had a lovely surprise. It was a little glimmer of sunshine in the midst of some very dark days. House of Smith's, which is a huge US home decor blog, posted Magni's very own Norwegian Apple Cake recipe, after I had sent it in as part of a competition.
You can read the full post here, and if you fancy trying your hand at it... Cason and Shelley have posted the whole recipe and a step by step guide on how to make it (they used my instructions and recipe and had a go themselves)
In the meantime, here's some pics of my lovely big girl making it herself!
