Orange Coconut Popsicles

Orange-Coconut-Popsicles Hi KokiDoo Friends,

Matteo here, how are You today? Fridayyyyyy!!! Yay. The whole weekend ahead of us. Which are Your plans? I think I would love to have a nice dinner, some relax, a walk in the sun and some baking with Maria.

I was looking through mail, comments we have received in the past months and it was funny to realize that almost everyone call us Koki. It is funny cause it seems we are japanese or chinese: Koki “Chan” Doo. Despite me and Maria love those countries, our name is not inspired by them.

KokiDoo was born when we were thinking about a name to give to our baking blog. I came up with the idea to name us like that magical, sweet, delicious thing that cheers You up in Your worst moment and celebrate Your success: the awesome “cookie dough”. Exactly, our name is pronounced like cookie dough. My suggestion was to write it as You pronounce it and in that case it would have been KukiDoo. Unfortunately in Sweden, Kuk means “cock” so we had to “Swede” the name and it became KokiDoo.

Orange-PopsiclesNow that I clarified our name and that You know that we are Matteo and Maria and not Koki and Doo, I can introduce You our nice sweet treat: “Orange Coconut Popsicles”. We are trying to prepare You for the summer as You noticed also in our previous post. We had a “Sunshine Citrus Cake” with its Mediterranean flavors, followed by “Cherry Heart Pastries” with black cherry jam. To prevent the heat or to get used to the hot summery weather, You could eventually treat Yourself with this creamy, fruity, extremely easy-to-do Orange Coconut-flavored Popsicles. Maria had a lot of juicy oranges in the fridge the last days…You know, it is always nice to have some Vitamin C around. Plus, oranges are so intensely tasty! She decided to combine oranges with coconut which is one of her favorite flavor. The result is a Popsicle which is refreshing, cold, creamy and fruity!

PopsiclesBefore to go and check the recipe, I have to mention that KokiDoo has a amazing surprise for our KokiDoo Friends. We will give You all the details in the next post but if You love what we bake…well, You may be able to actually taste our desserts. They are real, no baloney! And it is not everything, other nice sweet surprises are coming! Stay tuned with KokiDoo!

Cherry Heart Pastries

   Cherry-Hearts-PastriesHi KokiDoo Friends,

how are You? It seems that our last Citrus Cake has partially worked with the weather here in Sweden. Sun showed up consistently in the last few days. Vitamin D come to me, yes! Still a bit of rain and of course cold but we are getting there. If I think that I have the entire summer season ahead of me, I feel like cheering!

So, let’s continue to stimulate the good weather with a new tasty, fruity, sweet dessert! My idea was to make something with summer or late spring fruits. So I went to the supermarket and looked around in the fruit department. Mmm, cherries! Gorgeous, very big, juicy, black wild cherries! Here in Sweden we have most of the fruits all year long. For example, we had watermelon through all the winter.

Cherry-Heart-Bite-2Anyway, I decided to buy those great cherries and bake KokiDoo’s “Cherry Heart Pastries”. This nice dessert is very good to look at, both the outside heart shape and the inside jammy filling. Cherry Heart Pastries have a crispy shell filled with a thick, rewarding, flavory cherry jam. What are You waiting for? They are so easy to bake! Prepare to feel a very intense cherry taste that will make You close Your eyes thinking at nothing else than enjoy Your sweet moment. The texture is just very pleasant with the outside shell meeting the thick cherry jam. The good thing with this dessert is that it doesn’t fall apart when You bite it, the consistency is just perfect! Did I mentioned that those Cherry Heart Pastries are damn good? I think I pretty much did :)

Before we can have a look to the recipe of these Cherry dreams, I would like to Thanks a lot Tamara from the US that sent us a beautiful photo of her, her grand daughter and the last KokiDoo’s dessert cake (Sunshine Citrus Cake). She baked the cake for the birthday of her very cute 2-years old grand daughter and it looked delicious. I am so glad we contributed to a little girl happiness!
