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!
This is a cake that the French kids make all the time. Tasted 100s of times this is the ultimate French yogurt cake recipe, quick & easy. My trick: I use to add pears and dark chocolate.
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 moist dark chocolate cake is baked without any flour nor baking powder. Very simple and quick to prepare, it tastes even better after a few hours rest, if you can resist! But it’s worth it, the inside gets mellow and so delicious.
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!
