Hi friends,

Have any of you here heard about Karolina Tegelaar. She is the author of many cookbooks. I came across her blog when I was looking for sturdy vegan layer cake with tender crumb. She is so talented and creative. Unfortunately all her books are in Swedish. I wanted to know if any of her books were translated into English.

I know about her! :) (rather obviously, being a vegan cookbook maniac) and her newest cookbook "Stora boken om naturligt glutenfri bakning" (The Big Book about naturally glutenfree baking) I have often paged through in places where it's sold or at libraries. Can't afford to buy it right now though :(

Have you tried contacting the author/publisher?
http://shop.textalk.se/se/contact.php?id=42280 (the field at the bottom is a captcha).

Praefekt Omnimedia is the publisher (which I think she owns herself or at least co-owns IIRR). Her older books are mostly sold out though and hard to find. It could be a bit of a hassle to translate the book though since she has come up with some very interesting glutenfree flour mixes which might be harder to make outside of Sweden/Europe and several of the recipes are rather typically swedish.

For those needing some background: Karolina is a very creative biology researcher who has made it her hobby to write vegan cookbooks and even vegan cookbooks with multiple allergies cared for. All her recipes are free from egg and milk products and some of the later ones also free from gluten - and many even free from soy, nuts and similar allergens as well.

Her latest (which was 4 years in the making) is both vegan and glutenfree and contains 150 really beautifully looking recipes for everthing from glutenfree pancakes to glutenfree cinnamon buns (which do look completetly like their normal counterparts!) to bread (admittedly there are not that many bread recipes than the other sweeter stuff but there are several nonetheless).

I'm excited to learn about her, thanks! My family is Swedish and I've always wanted to make vegan versions of all the desserts I remember from when I was a kid. Unfortunately my Swedish is limited but it'd be great to have English translations someday.

Thanks for the info everyone . I have been using Google translate for two of her cake recipes she has on her website. It helped but it's funny how Google translates recipes into emotional drama using phrases like 'don't kill the flour ' or 'overriding the batter' lol

So, with my first salary from my new job I have bought her latest cookbook "Stora boken om naturligt glutenfri bakning" (The Big Book about naturally glutenfree baking) :)
Drooled over the pictures and some of the recipes on the commute home today :)

Now having made about 3-4 recipes out of this cookbook I must say I am even more impressed! They turned out both pleasing to the eye and good tasting!
That I botched the frosting of the "cherry-and-chocolate-cake" by adding coconut milk was my own fault - it still tasted good and I got raves about it (especially the day after when the cake really "had settled" tastewise).

I have by now made about 20 recipes and all but one turned out huge successes especially at my working place.
I however can't get the swedish Kanelbullar to work despite three tries so far ...

Can you describe some of the things you have made? Would love to hear more.
The link above doesn't seem to work anymore, but based on some of the book covers on her site ("Svenska klassiker" and "Kakor & cookies"), I would happily get her books if they were translated into English.

Made so far from Karolina Tegelaar's Stora boken om naturligt glutenfree bakning

* Kanelbullar (swedish version of Cinnamon Buns)
Using her own technique of adding coconut oil into a glutenfree yeast dough and chill the dough in the fridge or even freezer till it is completely cool and stiff. The third time was better than the other two but still not perfect. Will try more :)

* Scones
With soy yoghurt - I ate those myself :)

* Majsscones (corn scones)
basically corn flour, baking powder, salt, margarine and some (soy) yoghurt - and oh so delicious.

* Kärleksmums
Chocolate squares with coconut flakes. I replaced the coffee though since I hate coffee. They were a huge huge hit at work!

* Lingonkaka
A nice soft yule-tasting cake with jam of lingonberries/cowberries. The secret here was the combination of ginger, cloves and cinnamon.

* Adventskaka
A nice soft extremely yellow cake with saffron. I made the variant with apple slices put into the dough in a nice pattern. This was the most successfull cake at our Tolkien Society feast last saturday. This one also gets nice soft by addition of non-dairy yoghurt

* Silviakaka
A rather basic cake with (soy) milk, apple-cider vinegar and a mix of corn flour and white rice flour, Nice toppign with magarine, powdered sugar and some (soy) cream with coconut flakes for decotation.

* Mörka chokladmuffins (Dark Chocolate muffins)
Nice and chocolaty. Lots of cacao powder and tapioka plus brown rice flour for the base. A specialty one where you add boiling water and then directly into the oven so that the applecider vinegar starts to work at the right moment.

* Bärmuffins (fruit muffins)
Did stuff them with apples. Great recipe!

* Golden Cake Layer

* Choklad-tårtbotten

* Extra mörk chokladbotten
I used this for my birthday cake and it was a hit with even the carnivores. I combined it with fresh strawberries :)

I have made all three for different cakes during the last half year. Often in combination with fresh fruit and whipped soy cream sometimes flavored with melted chocolate.
One of the earliest I made with her recipe for cheery filling.


* Frangipanepaj (Frangipane pie)
Made this two times, once with apricots and once with pears. Really great combo of dough and fruit and almond-filling that bubbles up between the fruitpieces.

* Smulpaj
A pie with in this case blueberries. Great pie crust!

* Bärpaj
A nice crust where the secret ingredient is some beet sugar which keeps the dough moist. I have made it with both blueberries and apples and rhubarb.

* Chokladtryffelpaj (Chocolate Truffel pie)
The most requested pie at my workplace :) - have made 3 different ones for different groups of people by now. A magic crust with a stunning chocolate truffel filling made of melted chocolate, (soy) creamer and some margarine. A magic combination!


* Kolakakor (Kola cookies)
Nice oldfashioned cookies with a slight caramel touch. Very simple to make too.

I guess you could try too google for some of the above and use the google translate service. Lots of her recipes are online (or slightly modified only).

Some typos in the above.

The secret in the pie crust is beet sugar syrup, not beet sugar! Won't work with just sugar!

cheery = cherry (but then I mentioned it some posts above so maybe that was clear enough :) ..)

I use often soy milk since I can make that VERY cheap in my soy milk maker. But she gives the option of "any milk of choice" for most recipes.

Thanks helgonblomma! I will have a look and see if I can try to make one of her recipes that are online.

My brother was in Stockholm earlier this year and he raved about a particular pastry that they had there, I think it was around Easter. Not sure what it is called but it resembles a kind of bun that is cut open filled with custard/almond paste and whipped cream, and then capped with the bit that was cut off. The picture is on Karolina's "Svenska klassiker" cover. I would love to try to make a veganized version for him (even though he is omni) when he visits for the holidays, but I don't think my baking skills are up to snuff...

I guessed you mean Semlor?

In that case check http://forum.theppk.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=34286 :)

It's not very complicated to make :)

Once again the Chocolate Truffel pie was a huge hit :) Folks raved about it :)
Vegan AND glutenfree :)

And the three people there with gluten sensitivity were lyric about the Lingoncake, Adventcake with apples and Pepparkakor I made from the same cookbook too :)

Many of the others liked them too of course :) - but especially those were happy to have so much to choose from!

Seems that you folks with Ios (Apples operating system) can use the new app for some of her favorite recipes.
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/swedish-vegan-dessert-recipes/id1094189571?mt=8

Android folks will have to wait :(
And the new cookbook coming in the fall probably will also only be in swedish :(

But for you apple-folks you should be able to read some of the stuff we've been drooling over here :)

Yum yum yum. Drool drool drool. Putting postit's on nearly every page ...

I bought Karolina Tegelaar's latest baking book (Tårtor - utan ägg och mjölk; ISBN: 978-91-637-5150-9) at Vegomässan yesterday - and what a feast that promises to be! Lots of beautiful cakes where several have glutenfree options! Ingredients readily available here in Stockholm and familiar measurements (so no converting-cups-to-dl-on-the-fly) :)

But how to find time? :-/
