For the first time in 2 years I could invite guests for a birthday coffee on my actual birthday. This was really great and fantastic to have a house full of guests again after corona.
A classic Danish birthday coffee contains three key ingredients: freshly baked bun served with plenty of butter, cream cake and hot chocolate. Hot chocolate or drinking chocolate has no space inside my kitchen, as I DISLIKE the taste of hot chocolate and cocoa milk !!! I still recall my dislike, when I as a child was served hot chocolate at the other children´s birthday :-(
And as usual we start of the eating part with saffron buns saffron buns, which I always make for my birthday. For me saffron buns really equal birthday celebration for me, as the use of saffron in huge amount is a great way to celebrate life/birthdays.
Afterwards it was time for the first cake in form of a cream cake with a filling of rhubarb compote, pickled rhubarb on the top and the cream filling being a mixture of whipped dairy cream, cream fraiche 38% fat, icing sugar and vanilla corns.
The second cake was another rhubarb cake, this time with marzipan, which is another great combination.
