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! Continue reading “Banana Chiffon Cake”

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.

Enjoy! Continue reading “Yogurt mousse, cheesecake-style – Mousse de yaourt façon cheesecake”
