Fave Memory - My mother was 5 years old when she left Sweden to come to live in Italy with my grandmother. New life, culture, recipes and a different language, she soon forgot Swedish and grew up like a real Italian girl.
There is a recipe, however, that has helped to maintain a link with her origins and it is the preparation of Pannkakor, or as we call them in our family, the "Pankoka" name invented by my mother child. From my grandmother to my mother, from me and my sisters to our daughters (yes we are all girls! ;) ) the time to prepare and then enjoy the "Pankoka" becomes a small, although simple, event of celebration to our Swedish origins.
This is a lovely way to create buttercream frosting with the fruity flavours coming from jam. So if you want cherry buttercream simply use cherry jam for a delicious cherry flavour. You could try peach, blackberry, even marmalade. Just make sure the jam you use is a very smooth jam without big hunks of fruit in it (if it has use a hand blender to blitzit down a bit)
