It’s - already! - the blog’s third anniversary. For the occasion, I wanted to bake a special cake that represents typical French home cooking.
For those looking for a gluten-free gourmet recipe, or for hazelnut ... and chocolate lovers. Be careful, it’s addictive!
An interesting spongy texture, for an easy cake with grated coconut and coffee. Flavors are mixed but one don’t overcome the other. This changes from classic cakes and may surprise with few efforts.
My daughter’s beloved treat, so tasty, quick and easy that she makes it all the time. A French dessert with an American inspiration. Passion fruit gives a twist to the fudge dark chocolate brownie and seeds a crunchy texture.
Also called epiphany cake. The typical French galette des rois made with a mix of puff pastry and almond cream filling called frangipane is here flavored with dark chocolate, actuallly cocoa powder. Very tasty.
Just imagine. A dark chocolate mousse with surprises inside: apples cubes caramelized with brown sugar and cinnamon. Are you tempted? A gourmet dessert ! The French would say très gourmand.
This charlotte is a quick and easy to prepare chocolate cake with a creamy chocolate mousse, soft pears and crispy Maltesers balls.
The French, especially from Brittany, LOVE salted butter caramel. Mixed with chocolate, it does give a great hint to a basic chocolate cake.
A gluten free recipe.
How do you use ripe bananas? At home, it’s banana cake with lots of chocolate chips. Kids love it. Great also for breakfast or at tea time.
Literally this means beggar. What a strange name for a chocolate treat!
