Almond buns for burgers and sandwiches - Paleo buns

Video recipe - When browsing paleo sites I have often seen recipes for almond buns and oopsies. I found that the almond buns looked interesting. So I have been experimenting with those a lot. This is the recipe I have developed. They are a lot easier to make than regular buns and they taste better too. So I make them often now.

I am currently translating the recipes from my danish site as quickly as possible.

Orange Fromage / Orange Mousse
I know it from my childhood in the seventies. It was a classic recipe here in Denmark. But it has been somewhat of the radar for the last few decades. That is a shame since it is an excellent dessert. It is easy to make and inexpensive to boot. It is also a very good recipe to combine with other desserts. Especially if they include chocolate. This recipe is very simple, but I include a trick for pimping it up a little. Involving jelly and cake.

Chocolate trouble - chocolate confectionery - Melt In Your Mouth Cake
This is an exceptionally good and rich chocolate cake. Actually it is a classic pound cake where the flour has been replaced with chocolate. But the lack of flour only makes it seem richer.
Brownies
Brownies basically just is another variation of a pound cake. It has a bit more sugar. Some of the flour replaced with nuts, it has a bit less baking powder and added cocoa. But these small changes are enough to make the brownie a cake of its own. It is dense and heavy, more confetionery than cake. Sweet and strong. Lovely!
