We have been visiting Gothenburg, Sweden since 2018. On our recent trip back to Gothenburg we stayed in an area called Linné, bordering alongside the famous old town called Haga. Linné has a vibrant feel and is filled with cafes, restaurants and beautiful 19-century architecture. The Linné district is popular with the local Gothenburgers; with the main wide street Långgatan and is known as the city’s second-largest avenue.
I had lots of fun walking around and capturing our local area; the Linné district. If you haven't had a chance to watch my first vlog click here for the tour.
For more fun facts read My Favourite cafes, restaurants and places in Linné, Gothenburg, Sweden on my website.
During my staying in Sweden I baked a few new Swedish treats have a look at my recipes if you missed the recent release.
Swedish Chocolate Balls ?? (Chokladbollar) no coffee + no-bake
The history of Chokladbollar may be the first to event what we now call an energy ball. According to this blog https://scandasia.com/chokladbollens-dag-a-story-on-true-passion-for-swedish-chocolate-balls/. The first balls were made in 1943 during WW11, from a leftover cake.

Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake ??Kladdkaka
This Swedish chocolate cake is adaptable and could be made with any flour. The secret is to be under-baked on purpose to leave a deliciously gooey centre. I would add real dark chocolate next time. Click here for the recipe.
Five Weeks 'til Christmas: with only five weeks until Christmas and I am planning my filming for new festive recipes.
First on my holiday baking recipe list is my new Spelt flour braided bread. Click here for the recipe.
For a Swedish twist add ground cardamom to the dough and sprinkle the top with pearl sugar.
What's Coming Soon?
Over the next few weeks I will be releasing festive feel recipes for all you holiday inspiration and Christmas baking.
