Start baking and get happy, a Danish lifestyle tip!

Scandinavian-home-Scandinavian-lifestyle-Scandinavian-kitchen, start baking and get happy, the danish way


Did you know? Denmark is the country with the highest share of people that participate in training courses related to their hobbies. And one of their most popular hobbies is baking and cooking. No wonder, Danes are never bored during lockdowns because they keep themselves busy. 


From my many years of integrating into the Danish lifestyle, I figured out that just like any other population, Danes have a few weaknesses of their own. They like to always be right and they think they know best. If you are a Dane reading this, you can’t possibly argue with that! They love biking and I honestly love it too. They drink a lot of coffee and they are very passionate about their cuisine and famous pastries. 


Danes embrace their pastries so passionately that you always see long queues outside of bakeries, no matter the extreme hours or the cold, windy and rainy weather. Surprised? Once you taste the pastries, you will understand why they are so passionate about them. 


These danish recipes that I am sharing with you were supposed to be part of a separate chapter from my upcoming book about Scandinavian lifestyle. But since the book got postponed to be finished later in 2021, I thought now would be a good time to tempt you to start baking. It’s a great way to bring the cinnamon feeling of danish lifestyle into your own home, no matter the country you’re in.  


Vanilla – filled cinnamon rolls


Cinnamon is a very used spice in the whole Scandinavian cuisine, whether it is for baking or other meals. While these particular cinnamon pastries are NOT entirely of Danish origin, they are extremely popular here and easy to make. Even I managed to bake them and I barely know how to fry two eggs.
