It was Store Bededag or Great Prayer Day here on Friday, it is a day that the Church of Denmark introduced to consolidate a few other minor holidays that the Church observed. For Store Bededag, Danes like to eat a cardamom spiced bun called a hveder. Traditionally, people buy hveder on Thursday and eat it on Friday when all the bakeries are closed for the holiday. I decided to bake my own hveder rather than buy them from the bakery this year. I used this recipe from Claus Meyer and I think they turned out really well! We shared our hveder with the fiance's parents and some friends. To eat them, slice the buns in half, toast them and spread on some butter!
On Saturday, we spent the day in Helsingør where our friend M grew up. Another Danish city to check off of my list! We took a walk around Kronborg and the city center and walked through some of the colorful and very old apartment buildings in town. Helsingør is really lovely, it is a cute little city surrounded by water. We took a really nice walk down by the beach and through some forest areas as well. Later in the day, M made us a lovely dinner and we also baked and enjoyed this raspberry mousse cake for dessert. The fiance and I also took turns on M's parents' hammock. I think we need one at our place!
Yesterday was a bit quieter around here because it was raining most of the day. The fiance and I ran some errands but mostly spent the day inside reading and researching places to go for our honeymoon!
What did you get up to this weekend? It should be another sunny week here in Copenhagen so I'm looking forward to spending more time outside! I hope you have an awesome week!
