It may seem weird, but pancakes are one of my husband’s “duties”, he’s indeed the specialist. His pancakes are always very soft and perfectly cooked, and he is very proud of these achievements in the pancakes’ world. As far as I am concerned, I am very happy that for once it’s me not cooking and just waiting to be served at the table, but I cannot totally accept that his pancakes are better than mine … Read more

I did the math, a year has passed since I made these English muffins and took the pictures! Not kidding! It’s already been ONE LONG year since I made this recipe without posting it. It’s been so long that I don’t even remember why I didn’t publish it at that moment … The only thing I remember is trying 2 or 3 recipes before finding the one that I was really happy with, resulting in English muffins with a soft and quite puffy texture.

To make these brioches with custard and raspberry jam, I started from the recipe of the “veneziane” which are sweet buns, very very popular in Italy, flavored with lemon zest and stuffed before cooking with custard … soooooo good! Read more

Upside-down orange cake

In my head I wanted to make a completely different cake, plain of butter and loaded with bananas … but somehow I made a cake with oil and oranges, please don’t ask me why! An upside-down cake to be more precise, made with not that much sugar but sweetened with orange juice and honey syrup once cooked. Read more
