It is a really simple cake but I love the soft and crumbly texture and the mix of almond flavour and cacao is just perfect!
Perfect for breakfast these buns are soft in the middle and crusty outside.
Let is celebrate the chinese new year with an easy, healthy and simple asian recipe: prawn & coriander spring rolls.
‘La chandeleur’ or Candelmas in English falls on 2 February and at this date French people love to bake crepes which must be eaten only after eight p.m. If the cook can flip a crêpe while holding a coin in the other hand, the family is assured of prosperity throughout the coming year. The French though have a completely reversed view of the weather prospects. They say: “Quand la Chandeleur est claire, l’hiver est par derriere; Chandeleur couverte quarante jours de perte,” a rhyme that means, more or less: “If February 2nd is clear, no more winter to fear; if the Chandeleur is overcast, forty days winter to last.”
I know I am late to publish the galette des rois recipe. But it is better late than never right ?This is a popular French cake that celebrates the holiday of Epiphany (January 6th) the day when the Three Kings visited the Baby Jesus. As part of French tradition, a bean or small china feve (favor) is hidden in the cake. The person who finds the feve in his or her slice becomes king or queen for the day.
Christmas is coming soon and it will be my first family Christmas in NZ. This year we are a ‘real family’ with our 9 months baby girl and we also welcome my sister in law with her 11 month baby. It will be a nice time to be all around the table sharing a nice meal.
Summer is coming and it is time to bake some treats using fresh strawberries.
After 15 days without writing any recipe I am back with a nice pita bread recipe. I stuffed them with chicken and home made tzatziki. Tzatziki is a Greek dip made with Greek Yoghurt mixed with crushed garlic and grated cumcumbers. It is really fresh and it is marry well with grilled chicken.
This bread is a perfect summer bread to do sandwich or on the go meal.
It took only 30 minutes to prepare and bake them.
