Let’s celebrate Piccolo First Birthday {Classic Victoria sponge Cream Recipe}

Good Morning! Today we are happy to take part to the Piccolo First Birthday. I cannot believe that Piccolo has been launched just last year. I do remember when I first purchased them as I was desperately looking for a vegan/vegetarian baby food option for my girls. And when I first found about Piccolo last year, I had no idea of how “new” they were in the market place but I did notice that they were not available before. We have enjoyed lots of Piccolo Goodness this year and we have been delighted by the new flavours that they have introduced too. Now “My Little Piccolo” is like part of our family as it is the only “Baby food” in our home, in our cupboards otherwise I cook everything. They are seen like a special treat, and it is a healthy one :). So definitely, we naturally joined in the fun! We have tried to create a birthday cake recipe adding some Piccolo pouches in it. My daughters favourite flavour is the Raspberry and apple …

Apple cake Recipe with a French twist

Friday morning…. I thought I will share with you this scrumptious apple cake recipe inspired by Ma Fleur d’Oranger recipe. In my childhood – I know I talk about it a lot – we loved eating a famous cake called “Quatre quarts” which I think in English is something like Pound Cake. This cake is rich and is very good for tea time. Sometimes you might think it is a boring cake, maybe, but we just loved it. We were enjoying our slices and usually our mum would spread on top of it some cacao paste. Really good memories with this cake, children laughs… mouth and fingers full of chocolate… One of my favourite dessert is certainly apple pies or “Tarte aux pommes” so after viewing My Fleur d’Oranger recipe it reminds me the pound cake and decided to change hers with this one and added the apple Tarte twist. My daughters loved it and enjoyed every bit ! They were impressed by the apples flower on the top. I love the idea that they are …

{French Yoghurt Cake recipe} A simple birthday for our 2 years old daughter

Last week I have been a very busy bee between Baby allergies, Baba1 first day to reception year and Baba2 2 years birthday! I wake up early and prepared the gifts for both of them. I kept it simple and cosy. When I was a child my mum used to bake us a yogurt cake, a well known recipe used by every household, at least in the 80’s. The principle of this easy recipe is to reuse the yoghurt jar as a measuring tool. It is one of the first cake we teach and make with children. Yogurt cake recipe: Easy, you see! My cake made, I put some chocolat ganache and few sparkles. Ready! We decided that we will offer her only the Grimm’s Wheel. We waited Baba1’s return from school to celebrate. Cake and gift on the table, Grimm’s wheel and Piccalilly birthday Card, and let’s go. I put some ballons in the playroom as I knew that Baba1 would be very happy. Let’s start the play! 🙂 We laughed a lot all together. …

Egg free Basic sponge cake Recipe with Condensed milk

It is late but I just realised that I forgot to share with you my Egg Free Basic Sponge cake recipe with Condensed milk! This recipe saved my life, I am absolutely not exaggerating. Baba1 has been diagnosed with egg allergy since birth, and I tried my best for her first birthday to make her a beautiful egg free cake but it was not easy as at this time, she was also allergic to Cow Milk Proteins and other few things. So for her first birthday, I am afraid we have not done any cake. For her second birthday, I promised myself that this little girl will have a beautiful cake {thankfully she outgrown her milk allergy} and tried to find a very good recipe: this one I am sharing . This recipe is my BASIC recipe, I use it for mostly any cakes. Why? It works. The cake is fluffy, moisty and we are all happy! Bare in mind that there is still a light difference than an usual cake, if I can say …
