20: Lemon & poppy seeds
Both bottom and frosting of today’s cupcake have been flavoured with lemon and poppy seeds (although you can hardly tell with the frosting). Lemon is such a lovely flavour to work with as it makes the whole kitchen smell gorgeous. Not necessarily Christmassy, but you need a break from the Christmas flavours every now and then, don’t you (at least I do, not because I’m tired of them, but so I won’t get tired of them).
In my series of vegan Swedish Christmas foods I have finally reached my favourite part: the sweet stuff! One of the most traditional/typical ones in Sweden is knäck. Here is one vegan recipe for classic knäck. I usually prefer it without almonds, but this year I’m making it with, and with orange peel.
