It’s - already! - the blog’s third anniversary. For the occasion, I wanted to bake a special cake that represents typical French home cooking.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A delicious, quick and easy silky dessert mainly made with butternut squash purée, without flour - thus gluten free - and without any fat.
This charlotte is a quick and easy to prepare chocolate cake with a creamy chocolate mousse, soft pears and crispy Maltesers balls.
An explosion of flavors for a very pleasant fruit dessert. Ideal at the end of a meal, may it be festive or not.
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.
Lemon tart might be one of French's favorite desert. This is an extremely quick recipe that enhance lemon flavor without being too acidic and without meringue's sugary taste.
It's kind of the French Key Lime Pie.
October. Fennel is about to disappear from the shelves of our favorite markets who respect seasons, and juicy oranges sneak up. It's the ideal moment to prepare this delicious fresh salad. It's light and full of vitamins.
A Caramelized Upside-Down Apple Pie
The French Tarte Tatin is a traditional apple pie with a twist: it's cooked upside down, apples down below and pastry up top, and flipped onto the presentation dish while it's still hot. This way the apples are slow-cooked in caramel, which makes them soft and flavorsome, while the pastry remains crispy. Why upside down? What a strange idea!!
