Coconut Peaks
makes 25 to 30 cookies

Kokostoppar are the Swedish version of a classic coconut macaroon and most certainly a staple on the fika cookie platter. This is a recipe that works well with many variations. For a twist, try adding a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger or dipping the tips in dark chocolate. These are also gluten-free. 

3½ tablespoons (1.75 ounces,
50 grams) unsalted butter
2 eggs
⅔ cup (4.67 ounces, 132 grams) natural cane sugar
2¼ cups (6.75 ounces, 191 grams) unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and set aside. 

In a bowl, lightly whisk together the eggs and sugar. Fold in the coconut and salt and the slightly cooled butter. Let the batter sit for about 15 minutes.

Scoop tablespoon-size portions of the batter onto the baking sheet and shape them into peaked mounds.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies are a light golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Store in an airtight container.

Revue de presse

"The book is a delicious compendium of nearly 50 illustrated recipes inspired by Brones and Kindvall’s childhoods, equally fueled by Fika. The cookies, cakes and breads (including savory variants) tap right into a growing, universal quest to achieve a more laid-back European lifestyle."
—Lindsey Tramuta, New York Times T Magazine

"As accessible as it is insightful, Fika is a baking book mixed with etiquette how-to and cultural know-how, iced with a calendar of holidays and expressed as a work of illustrated art. "
—Anne Bramley, Paste Magazine

"Operating as both a noun and a verb, the finer points of the fika are sometimes lost on outsiders—until now. Writer Anna Brones and illustrator Johanna Kindvall compiled the history and practice of the fika along with a collection of recipes for Swedish baked goods in their release "Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break. [...] For those looking to bring fika vibes to their lives, the book is a wealth of Swedish recipes and cooking tips. Swedish classics like kanelbullar (cinnamon buns spiced with cardamom) and hasselnötsflarn (simple cookies best dipped in a fresh cup of coffee) are easily explained and aided by Kindvall's upbeat illustrations. The visual component of the recipes especially comes in handy for more elaborate specialties like lussekatter (saffron buns). Beyond the classic sweet-baked goods associated with fika, the book gives recipes for savory smörgåsbords, jams, drinks and more contemporary recipes like the ultra-rich chokladbollar (chocolate balls that are, admittedly, mostly butter)."
 —Hans Aschim, Cool Hunting

Très beau livre, bien illustré. Les recettes sont fidèles aux classiques suédois, délicieuses et variées. Une replongée efficace vers la Suède.

Until I moved to the US, most of my exposure to Swedish food came from IKEA, much like I imagine it does for most people. But our relocation agent that helped us find a place to live and do battle with Social Security and the DMV is Swedish, and invited us round to her house for her annual Swedish Christmas/ St Lucia party. There we tasted lussekatter, got offered some Glögg, and were taught that seven kinds of cookies minimum should be served up by any self respecting Swedish host(ess) at a party.



Anyway, the full title of this book is Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break.

Fika means coffee or kaffe with something to eat, but also refers to the coffee break taken at least once a day, a chance to sit down and unwind. Frankly after the crazy week I have had, I think we could all deal with a little bit of fika.

The book deals with various traditionally based Swedish recipes for baked goods, but also some recipes of preserves and cordial, all accompanied by a bit of background information and history.

It is a cute book with illustrations throughout by Johanna Kindvall. The illustrations include diagrams of the traditional forms for shaping your lussekatter, variations for vetebullar (Cinnamon and Cardamom Buns) and others giving a pictorial representation of the recipe.

While pretty, I can't help but long for a few pictures of the goods themselves though, somehow the pictures don't quite inspire me to bake in the same way. In the interests of completeness, I made havreflarn med choklad (oat crisp chocolate sandwich cookies).

They were taste tested and found to be good! The cookies themselves are made in a slightly different method to what I am used to, and result in a cookie with a slight chewy meringue-y texture. Very little flour is used, instead you blitz oats in a food processor. The filling is simply melted chocolate with a bit of ground ginger. The recipe worked perfectly, other than me needing to increase the cooking time, but this is a standard adaptation for any recipe in my poor pathetic oven.

Just a little FYI, in order to try and keep the mess minimal, I melted the chocolate and mixed in the ginger, then put it into a zip lock bag, chopped the corner off, then used this like a piping bag to apply the chocolate, then smoothing it out with the back of a spoon, and placing the other half on top.

It worked pretty well!

Overall there a quite a few recipes I could see myself making, and while they say that some of the ingredients might be difficult to get hold of outside of Sweden, I think for the most part this is not true, especially in this day of internet shopping. It is a cute little book!

So friends............................ ska vi fika?

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

What I love about Fika: The Art of The Swedish Coffee Break is that it's not just a collection of recipes, but also a compilation of stories and cultural insight. I feel like I've learned so much about the Swedish Coffee break and now I have all the recipes I need to host my own! The illustrations are as delightful as the recipes, which I've found to be dependable and easy to follow- and beg to be made over and over again!

‘Fika’ by Anna Brones and Johanna Kindvall was a great find! I had never heard of the Swedish tradition of a "kaffe" break with baked goods. After reading the 1st chapter I not only discovered this lovely ritual but that it means so much more. It's an ideal. Check out Wikipedia's entry on Fika here and learn something lovely. I enjoy my afternoon coffee but being an American, and not very familiar with my Swedish roots, it's more of a coffee on the road while doing errands than a relaxing way to unwind and connect. My great grandparents immigrated here from Sweden- came over on a boat, but I never knew them and their ways didn't translate down the generations. I wish I knew more about them and the culture.

This darling little book explains Fika, and gives traditional recipes- some easy and some more involved, but all authentic. I'm pretty excited to start having Fika at least once a week.I think I'll start with the Blackberry Almond Cake. My kids and friends would enjoy it, and think how much money I would save by being home more, and not spending $$ on Starbucks!

Check it out, you might learn to enjoy a slow down yourself. If you already have a ritual of Fika, or maybe something like an English Tea, let me know what you do and what it means to you. We have lost the art of slow food and gathering in homes and slowing down. I'm very aware of it but swept up...I'd like to change this about my life. This book gave me a little inspiration to make a start. It's well-written, clear, has the English and Swedish names and spellings of the goodie recipes and it's simply but sweetly illustrated. I give it a thumbs up!

*This book was given to me free in exchange for an unbiased review by the publisher.

Do not read this while you are hungry. This book is filled with deviously delicious baked goods, beverages, compotes, pancakes, crackers, pies, breads, cookies, sandwiches, holiday treats and more. They will tempt you to take on this wonderful Swedish traditional coffee break as your own. Who wouldn't? In Sweden they take a break slow down, drink their coffee, eat snacks and enjoy life. Sounds wonderful right ? I am signing up for this program.
Wonderfully illustrated, easy to follow recipes. Pantry requirements, equipment usage and steps all well drawn out with a retro feel.. There are a lot of recipes with brief stores and a few suggestions.
I love this book, it is my favorite cook book so far this year . I am planning on gifting some of my coffee addicted friends with this book.

I bought this for my wife, and let me tell you that has paid out in dividends for me. The first thing she made was the mandelkaka med björnbä (blackberry almond cake). Oh my. But as others have stated, this is much more than a cookbook. Living in Seattle, of course we love our coffee, but fika elevates it to the sublime. This well written book is our new best friend.
