Here is my favourite recipe for Easy Bake Swedish Teacakes as shared on Instagram a few weeks ago.

After almost a year in quarantine I could probably start a Swedish bakery with all that baking I've been doing since March 2020. I've always loved baking different cakes that I remember eating (and baking!) from my childhood in Sweden, however the past year I've definitely stepped that up a notch.

Baking is my meditation. I constantly have a million projects on, and to slow down, I bake. I bake to pass on those same Scandinavian traditions that I was taught, to my children. I bake because I love it. And I bake because I love sharing what I've baked. 

A few weeks back it was Valentine's day. I baked these heart shaped Swedish Teacakes that my children loved. They are slightly sweet, yet feel quite wholesome with honey, oats and butter included in the recipe. And they are super easy to make!

Heart Shaped Easy Bake Swedish Teacakes 

1 dl of rolled oats

500 ml of water 

50 gram butter (salted)

0.5 dl runny honey

2 tsp salt

50 grams of fresh yeast or 14 grams of dry yeast

5.5 dl - 6 dl of plain flour 

3.5-4 dl of rye flour

Method for making Easy Bake Swedish Teacakes:

  1. Mix the oats with 250 ml of water in a pan and bring to a medium boil. Let it boil until you have a porridge like consistency (about 2-4 minutes).
  2. Take the pan off the heat and add the butter and let it melt.
  3. Add the rest of the water, honey and salt and combine.
  4. Put the yeast in a large bowl, crumble it with your fingertips if you use fresh yeast. Add the porridge to the bowl, and mix all the ingredients, until well combined.
  5. Add the flour to the porridge mix, and knead into a smooth dough.
  6. Cover the dough with a cloth and or a food cover and leave it for 30 minutes in room temperature.
  7. Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead quickly.
  8. Use a rolling pin and roll out the rough to a 0.5 cm thickness.
  9. Stamp out your desired shapes from the dough, using a cookie cutter, and place on a lined tray. Using a fork, poke holes across the crust.
  10. Cover the tray(s) with a kitchen cloth for 30 minutes.
  11. Heat oven to 225 C (205 fan)
  12.  Bake in the middle of the oven for 6-8 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
  13. Brush the crust with water as soon as they come out of the oven. This will ensure they stay soft. 

I hope that you enjoy these Easy Bake Swedish Teacakes!

When making these easy bake Swedish teacakes I used some of the products we used to sell on our website, like the Iris Hantverk rolling pin.

I've now linked this to the Iris Hantverk website.
