Ingrediens:

250 g. Sugar
250 g. butter
250 g. flour
4 eggs
Zest and juce og 1 lemon
1 teaspoon og baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar

The butter should be soft, so put it out of the fridge 1 hourh before you have to use it.
When the butter is soft mix it with the sugar until it becomes light and creamy. Now mix in 1 egg at a time. It may seem like the batter has split, but it dosen’t have any affect on the cake when it has baked in the oven.
Add the lemon and mix again. Add the bakeing powder, vanilla and flour and mix it untill it comes togehter.

Put the batter in a bread pan lined with baking paper, it has be a pan that is little bit longer then a regular bread pan.

Now put the cake in a cold oven and turn it on at 175 degrees and bake it for 1 hourh. (Mybe a little bit less) My cake took about 55 min. to bake.

When the cake has cooled down you can eather clace  it, or dust it with powdered sugar.

Now… eat! 😀

Yummy healthy salad

I love salad and I love making them (And ofcourse eating them). The reason I love making salad is because you can customize it to your liking. And I have made my version of a good salad, and this is what i like to put in a salad.

My beauty wish list at the moment

2015-07-181

1. The Urban Decay naked pallete 3.
This pallete has been out for a long time now, but i have never bought it because it is to more exspensive for me. Even thoug it is expensive I have heard great things about this product and i really want to try it out.

2. Loreal true match foundation
Another product I would like to add to my foundation collection.

3. Lancome volume a porter mascara
This is one of the newest mascaras lancome has come out with. I just saw someone on youtube, who tried it out and it looked amazing on her.

4. Lancome grandiose mascara 
Another mascara from Lancome that I want to try. But again it is really exspensive.

5. cliniuqe cc cream
This CC cream gives a light coverage, but makes your skin look dewy and healthy. A perfect CC cream for everyday use.

6. Doolce & Gabbana Dolce eau de parfume 
I smelled this parfume at my local beauty store and it smells so good that i wanted to buy it right away, but then I saw the price and I decided to save my money. But i defenitly want to try it out someday. I need it for my small perfume collection.

That’s what is on my wishlist at the moment. Great (exspensive) products all around.

Peanut butter balls

Do you love peanutbutter as much as I do? Then you are gonna love theese peanutbutter balls. Super easy recipe too.

11774363_910196939045649_578251481_n (1)

 

Ingrediens you need:

250 g. peanutbutter
130 g. confectioners sugar
35 g. rice krispy
57 g. butter
180 g. chocolate

Melt the butter and then put the peanubutter in the butter and melt that with.
While the peanutbutter is melting, put the confectiners sugar, rice krispy in a bowl.
When the peanutbutter is melted pour it in the sugar and rice krispy and combine. It may seem like there is alot of sugar. But just combine it slow and it will come together.

Roll the mixture into balls. This is best to do with wet hands, so the peanutbutter dosen’t stick to our hands. When they are rolled put them in the frigde to cool. For about 30 minuttes.

Now melt the chocolate  and turn the balls in the chocolate. Put them in the fridge again so the chocolate can harden.

now eat these delisious treats.
Hope you will try this recipe out. If you do you can # your picture on instagram with the hashtag #blogbyguldbrand so I can see.

Ingrediens:

2 Sweet potato
Salt
2- 3 teaspoon Olive oil

Wash and scrub your sweet potatos good. Pat them dry, and cut them thinly either with a mandolin or a knife. I just used a knife.
put the olive oil in a bowl and toss the potatos in the oil.
Place your sweet potatos on your bakeing pan lined with baking paper, and sprinkle them with salt.

Now put the sweet potatos in your 180 degres (celsius)  oven for 15-20 minutes. flip them halfway, and keep a good eye on them because they can brown easily.

Let them cool for a bit and then you can enjoy this healthy yummy treat
