What's Happening On Instagram?Another day, another bake, with cardamom my new favourite spice. This time paired with brown butter pistachios in a sensational take on carrot cake. No cream cheese frosting here, it’s topped with a vibrant and gloriously sticky carrot glaze. Recipe courtesy of #bonappetit Yes it’s a little decadent but very delicious. Swipe for a slice. #thepaddingtonfoodie #carrotcake #basicallybaking #cardamom #pistachio #carrotglaze #timetobake #fromscratchOne of the upsides of staying home is rediscovering the joys of baking. My happy place. Visiting Copenhagen last year I fell in love with #kardemummabullar from #junothebakery and #hartbageri. Inspired by a recipe from #fabriquebakery here is my take. Happy Sunday morning everyone and keep safe. #thepaddingtonfoodie #cardamombuns #frommykitchen #sundaymorningvibes #timetobakeChilli, sesame and peanut crispy chicken 💕 #thepaddingtonfoodie #lazylunch #summerinsydneySydney always puts on a spectacular NYE fireworks display. We hope the light sprinkle of rain that fell at midnight is a good omen for our fire and drought ravaged communities. May we all keep safe, happy and well in 2020. #thepaddingtonfoodie #mckellpark #darlingpoint #sydnye #hello2020 #prayforrainRounding out 2019 with a few of my favourite things. #thepaddingtonfoodie #poachedeggs #gravlax #asparagus #icedlatte #fratelliparadiso #endof2019We’ve loved soaking up the festive spirit in this wonderful city. #thepaddingtonfoodie #julfest #copenhagenlife #denmark🇩🇰It seems like there’s a bakery or pastry shop on almost every corner.

So many cafes to explore on a rainy Copenhagen afternoon and we’re so glad we chose this one. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenlife #whattodoonarainyday #chickenandwaffles #trufflefries #watermelon #cafelife #copenhagenfoodDanish breakfast. Oatmeal with Apple, Crushed Almonds and Caramel Sauce or Skyr (Icelandic Yoghurt) with Apple Compote, Granola and Fresh Fruit. Very Hygge. #thepaddingtonfoodie #porridgebowl #skyr #hyggelife #copenhagenfood #denmarklifeCardamom Croissant 🥐 A small but delicious snack for our train trip to Helsingor to visit Hamlet’s Castle 🏰 and the Maritime Museum 🚣♀️ 🛳 of Denmark 🇩🇰 #thepaddingtonfoodie #cardamombuns #croissants #copenhagenfood #traintravel #denmarklifeHow do you like your smørrebrød? Discovering and loving these traditional Danish open faced sandwiches. Originally known as smør og brød which loosely translates as butter on bread, each of these decidedly fancy toppings sit on top of a thin slice of buttered rugbrød, a delicious dense yet fluffy rye bread filled with seeds. There’s chicken salad with apple, mushroom, crispy bacon and gem lettuce, pumpkin with kale and almonds, and crumbed plaice with prawn, lemon, picked tomatoes and micro greens. All washed down with a glass (or two) of akvavit. Can’t wait to recreate these when I get home. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #smørrebrød #danishfood #rugbrød #sandwichlove #opensandwichOn the hunt for cinnamon scrolls. We didn’t have to search too hard or too long to find this delicious little bakery in Jægersborggade already decked out for Christmas. Adore the "kanelsnurrer" made with Valrhona chocolate. #thepaddingtonfoodie #copenhagenfood #cinammonbuns #jægersborggade #danishpastry #denmarklifeOne of the joys of travel is discovering new and different food combinations. Some are quirky like the chocolate coated potato crisps in Hokkaido, Japan and now this...a deep fried chicken wing and donut replete with sunglasses 😎 at the Texas State Fair.
