It’s - already! - the blog’s third anniversary. For the occasion, I wanted to bake a special cake that represents typical French home cooking.
The French just love the combination of blue cheese and pears. Intensity and sweetness at the same time. Here with some nuts and a bit of honey. It’s delicious crispy, served warm with a green salad.
This recipe is both light and very tasty. Pears are roasted with spices (you can feel saffron, star anise and cinnamon at the same time in one bite!) and cream cheese is whipped with vanilla (but not too much as we want to keep cream cheese flavors).
A very tasty and smooth cream that can be served either as a side with beef or poultry for example or as a soup, depending on how much cooking water you add. A perfect dish for cheese lovers.
How do you prefer your crepes? How about perfect light batter for thin crepes with pears and a decadant salted butter caramel sauce (here without cream)? Easy, quick. A delight.
This charlotte is a quick and easy to prepare chocolate cake with a creamy chocolate mousse, soft pears and crispy Maltesers balls.
