Finally, finally, finally summer hit Denmark. It has been such a cold and windy spring – not a single summer-y day. Until yesterday. It has been storming for weeks (and I am not even lying here) and yesterday the wind all of a sudden stopped, the sky cleared and the sun shone more brightly than it has done all year. I could run in shorts (!!!) again and I even biked around in a T-shirt. That is summer to me.

Oh, and I bought the first Danish strawberries today for my brother and I. They cost a fortune – but it was worth every single penny.


Så blev det endelig sommer. Det føles som om foråret bare har været en forlængelse af vinteren i år. Ikke en eneste sommerdag. Lige indtil i går. Hvor var det skønt vinden endelig lagde sig og solen kom frem. Første løbetur i shorts – og på cykel i T-shirtærmer. Det er hvad sommer er for mig. 

Og så selvfølgelig jordbær. Jeg købte årets første bakke. De kostede en bondegård, men det var hver en øre værd.

To celebrate the arrival of summer I invited my two lovely friends Karen and Emma (thanks for letting me borrow your beautiful hands girls) over for tea and crumble in the green house. We have a small orangery in the garden which my mom has furnished with a small table, a bench, tons of plants and candles. Along one of the walls a wine climbs and it covers half of the glass roof making the whole orangery a little cave-like. It’s one of my favourite spots in the house (or outside?). So I like to invite friends over for “drivhushygge” meaning “coziness in the green house”. People tend to think the idea is both hilarious (because the word is cute) but also very nice.


For at fejre at det endelig blev sommer inviterede jeg to af mine skønne veninder Karen og Emma (tak for lån af jeres smukke hænder, piger) over til te og crumble i drivhuset. Jep, drivhuset. Vi har et lille orangeri i haven, som min mor har indrettet noget så hyggeligt med en bænk, et lille bord, hynder, massere af planter og et ton stearinlys. I det ene hjørne vokser en vin, og den spreder sig hen over halvdelen af glastaget, så hele drivhuset for noget hulelignende over sig. Det er et af mine yndlingssteder herhjemme. Så jeg inviterer nogen gange til “drivhushygge”. Folk synes, det lyder noget så sjovt (fordi drivhushygge er et dejligt ord) men også sjovt.

Yesterday for drivhushygge I made this crumble. My dad had bought way too many apricots (okay you can never buy too many apricots but whatever) and for some reason the idea of making a crumble got stuck in my head. Additionally we have like a kilo of fresh ginger in the fridge – no joke, my dad is on an “Asian food kick” so we have a ton of nice spices (I have to share some of his recipes btw – they are beyond amazing), so I spiced the crumble up a bit.

Best. Decision. Ever.

The combination of the sweet coconut sugar, the slightly sour apricots and spicy ginger is a combination made in heaven.

Happy summer!


I går til drivhushygge bagte jeg denne crumble. Min far havde købt for mange abrikoser (okay joke, man kan ikke købe for mange abrikoser, men whatever), og så synes min hjerne den skulle sætte ideen om en abrikoscrumble fast i mit hoved. Oveni har vi et kilo frisk ingefær i køleskabet – no joke, min far har fået et asiatisk-mad-flip så vi har et hav a spændende ingredienser i køleskabet (jeg bliver forresten nødt til at dele en opskrift snart – det er så lækkert), så jeg satte lidt kulør på crumblen med ingefær. 

Bedste. Idé. Nogensinde. 

Kombinationen af den søde kokossukker, de en-anelse-sure abrikoser og krydrede ingefær er genial. 

Glædelig sommer!

  1. There is so much to love about this post. 1) new strawberries! DANISH strawberries! 2) that word, drivhushygge. I wish I had a green house so I could use that word all the time (if only I could pronounce it?!) 3) SUMMER YAY! 4) the fact that you have an orangery in your garden. Can I move in please?

    I know I always say this when I comment, but you take such beautiful pictures. I could hate every ingredient in a dish you make, but I still want to try it because your photography is incredible! That being said, an apricot ginger crumble sounds amazing!! Also, I completely agree that you can never have too many apricots. And tell your dad that I’m also on an Asian food kick. I can’t get enough! I’ve never been super into spices, but there are some crazy good Asian spices that I’m loving lately!!
