IMG_1126

This cake is very popular in France, almost all the children learn how to make it. We will use the empty yogurt container as a measuring tool.

Ingredients:

1 yogurt, vanilla or plain + 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 stick unsalted, melted butter + 1 tablespoon to coat the dish

2 yogurt cups of sugar

2 yogurt cups of gluten free baking mix, I used Pamela’s

1 yogurt cup of shredded coconut

1 yogurt cup of chocolate chips

3 eggs

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter an oven proof dish, this one is about 9″ in diameter.

Mix the ingredients in a large bowl, in this order. Whisking well before adding each ingredient.

Pour batter into prepared dish. Bake until top of the cake is golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

You can put 2 to 3 diced apples or bananas instead of the chocolate chips.

Bon appétit !

Halloween Dentures – Dentiers d’Halloween

DSCN5259

Ok, not a French recipe this week, but funny and easier to do than it looks! Even with children.

Ingredients

3 red apples quartered and cored = 12 pieces

Some peanut butter, or almond butter or tahini. Red jam could work too!

Juice of a lemon

Instructions

Peel 3 of the quarters. Slice them in 4 lengthwise, then cut small pieces that will make the teeth. Sprinkle them with lemon juice to keep them white.

Slice the remaining quarters with skin in 4 also. Put a layer of peanut butter inside each pair. Sprinkle the top of the upper slice with lemon juice.

Insert the teeth inside each denture, you can use toothpicks to secure and eat.

Maintenant en français pour nos lecteurs francophones :

3 pommes rouges, coupées en quartiers, trognon enlevé = cela donne 12 quartiers

Beurre de cacahuète, d’amande ou tahini. De la confiture rouge devrait aller aussi

Jus d’un citron

Peler 3 des quartiers. Les couper en 4 dans le sens de la longueur, puis couper en petits morceaux qui seront les dents. Les arroser de jus de citron pour qu’elles restent blanches.

Couper les quartiers restants, avec la peau, en 4 de la même façon. Mettre une couche de beurre de cacahuète a l’intérieur de chaque paire. Arroser le dessus de la tranche supérieure avec du citron.

Insérer les dents dans chaque dentier, vous pouvez utiliser des cure-dents pour sécuriser et manger.
