Sweet Treats

All my favorites dessert recipes! And baking definitely is my favorite part!

Tous mes desserts favoris! Et “pâtisser” reste ce que je préfère!

Banana Chiffon Cake

Banana is one of the big classics when it comes to baking but I can bet on the fact that you’ve never had anything like this one! Even though it’s banana the texture is fluffy and light as heaven. It’s not spicy, not hearty, not wintery… the taste is quite subtle and the texture thin as air thanks to the whipped egg whites. Serve with some tea and enjoy!

The unbeetable cake – Le gâteau à la betterave

I bet you’ve never heard of a beetroot cake! just like the carrot cake, the zucchini bread or the pumpkin pie, the beetroot cake stands among the typically American recipes which French people would probably have never thought of! Continue reading “The unbeetable cake – Le gâteau à la betterave”

Classic Apple Crumble – Crumble aux pommes

Yogurt mousse, cheesecake-style – Mousse de yaourt façon cheesecake

Everyone knows how passionate I get about cheesecake, one of my favorite desserts obviously but not the quickest nor the easiest one to make… plus it’s quite heavy on the stomach for a dinner dessert. That’s how I came up with this amazing alternative! combining the lightness of a mousse, tiramisu-style but with greek yogurt, with the lemony flavors of a cheesecake… Served in small individual verrines, it seems even lighter and healthier! Enjoy! Continue reading “Yogurt mousse, cheesecake-style – Mousse de yaourt façon cheesecake”

Blueberry Bundt Cake

Here comes one of the softest cakes I’ve ever made! It’s perfect for breakfast or for teatime, it’s easy as hell and, whatsoever, it’s a pretty little thing thanks to the nice blueberry dots all over it. I should call it Blueberry-lemon cake but the lemon is almost undistinguishable and it sounds too long anyway! The lemon zest adds just a subtle bitter lemon touch perfectly matching the berries’ sweetness. Continue reading “Blueberry Bundt Cake”

Lemon Loaf – Cake au citron

Lemon based desserts are a guaranteed success among my guests, they please fruit lovers as well as chocolate ones: lemon pie, lemon cheesecake, key lime pie… and now my famous lemon loaf cake! 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! Continue reading “Lemon Loaf – Cake au citron”

All you’ll need is a classic French toast prep, a big Brioche from the Bakery and an oven. Yes, you read right! no pan, no messiness here! you put it all together and you throw it in the oven, it’s that simple! Enjoy 🙂 Continue reading “Pull-apart Brioche Pain Perdu”

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. I usually don’t like any recipe involving self-made dough (pizza, bread…) because so much can go wrong along the way ending up with a flat piece of bread and a messy kitchen. But this one’s very easy and 100% success guaranteed.  Continue reading “Cinnamon pull-apart loaf – Brioche à la cannelle à effeuiller”
