Wienerbrød – Danish pastry

June 13, 2012

This pastry, which is a  is called a ” FRØSNAPPER”, is primary eaten at breakfast. The Copenhagen version (east Denmark) is sweet like a cake, containing remonce, the Jutland version (west Denmark) is more like a bread containing cheese. This difference obviously causes big surprises and discussions about which version is the best, when someone gets a “foreign” frøsnapper.

    There is few moments as dissapointing as when you get the wrong type in your mouth.
    The few times I eat breakfast with Danish pastry I prefer the sweet Copenhagen type.

    They look so delicious and beautiful bread. I like bread with sesame.

    My favorite is; pie like body with rich filling: cheese cream or custard cream with fruits such as cherry or berry. Body should have aromatic buttery flavor, fruits should have fresh fruity … never be jam. For me, danish pastry is for tea time. Would you like to have a cup of tea?

    I love both of them! One of each with a pot of fresh coffee would be a perfect way to start the day 🙂

    Beautiful! I miss all the plentiful bakeries that were available when I traveled in Germany and Paris…

      Germany and France sure have nice bread and cakes, different from the Danish. It is always interesting to taste the food eaten in other countries. Thank you for your comment, Lilly Sue.
