This one is particularly soft with lots of moisture and comes topped with some lemon icing for the real sour touch. And, as you’ll soon get to see, it’s incredibly easy to make!

Cinnamon pull-apart loaf – Brioche à la cannelle à effeuiller

Who said anything about post xmas dinner diet? Yes, it’s Monday, yes, we’ve had plenty of food to last through winter and still, I’m obsessed with this Cinnamon Pull-apart Brioche.

But this one’s very easy and 100% success guaranteed.  Continue reading “Cinnamon pull-apart loaf – Brioche à la cannelle à effeuiller”

Matcha, White Chocolate & Cranberries Cookies – Cookies Matcha, Chocolat blanc & Cranberries

Time has come for me to share my 2nd best cookie recipe with this Japanese-y take on the all-American sweet. No need to worry about the matcha’s bitterness, you can barely taste the flavor, it’s very sweet and mild… Plus, the white chocolate and the cranberries add this extra sweetness to balance it anyway! Something to please anyone, even those against matcha such as my better half! Plus you’ll enjoy making them as much as actually eating them. Just like my classic cookie recipe, this is an easy one: no waiting, no chilling the dough, just 9min in the oven… tadam!

Killer Banana Bread – Cake à la Banane de la mort qui tue

What’s more comforting and regressive than a banana? Did you too put bananas with milk chocolate in the microwave when you were a child? or maybe that’s juste me… I actually read in some scientific press title that it’s good to have a banana at night because it boosts your melatonin (sleep hormone) levels thereby acting as a soothing medium. Makes sense then that I feel so good while having a slice of my delicious Banana bread. That one’s a killer, trust me! And, again, its such an easy one! Have some very ripe bananes in stock? Go for it! Continue reading “Killer Banana Bread – Cake à la Banane de la mort qui tue”
