Treated myself to a baking cook~ book at the weekend. Its the Nordic Bakery Cookbook by Miisa Mink. Originally from Finland Miisa runs the Nordic Bakery and her book is brimmed full of scandinavian breads, pastries, cakes, buns and cookies. My other half wanted to try out the recipe for Oatbake with blueberries and raspberries. I was on hand with the camera. 🙂

You will need

100g porridge oats
300ml hot milk
100g unsalted butter, softened at room temp
60g caster sugar
3 tbspoons runny honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
120g plain flour
150g blueberries
150g raspberries
Icing sugar to dust

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C (350F) Gas 4

Put the oats and milk to one side in a mixing bowl and allow the oats to absorb most of the milk and to cool down slightly.

Put the butter and sugar in a separate bowl snd whisk until pale and fluffy. Stir in the honey and vanilla extract. Gradually add the beaten egg, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift the baking powder and flour together, then fold into the butter mixture. Drain any remaining liquid from the oats, then stir into the mixing bowl.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 mins, until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let rest in the tin for 10 mins before turning onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with a little icing sugar before serving.

The recipe says it can be served with a dollop of whipped cream or custard if you wish. Enjoyed mine on its own in front of Shetland on the telly. 🙂

  1. I have always had the feeling that the Nordic countries, well, Sweden at least, were not very vegetarian friendly. Would this be right?

  2. Having read stuff about Iceland , they do like their lamb and whales and erm rotting fish delicacies ( bleurgh) but they have , like here, vegi cafes etc. This book is on baking….and I dont see anything ( much)which doesn’t contain dairy or eggs. Im sure it us as easy in Sweden etc to be vegi as it is here.
