Walnut Bredele

First of all Happy New Year to all of you! This holiday season has been a busy one so I haven't had a chance to share a new bredele recipe. Bredele are little cookies we make for Christmas in Alsace, France and we have a whole collection of them! This time I made a walnut bredele also called "Nussebredele". It's a buttery cookie which dissolve in your mouth the moment you eat it and which has a wonderful walnut flavor. I think these are perfect with tea or coffee and can also be enjoyed all year round.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
300 g butter
125 g sugar
125 g ground walnuts
400 g flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
zest of half a lemon
2 egg yolks for egg wash

Preparation:

1- Preheat the oven at 355 F. Let the butter at room temperature until it is soft. Add it to a mixing bowl with the sugar and vanilla and whip it until you get a smooth and creamy texture.

2- Add in the flour, ground walnuts and lemon zest and mix well. Knead the dough until smooth and non sticky.

3- Roll the dough until you get a thickness of about 1 to 2 cm and cut circles with a cookie cutter.

4- Brush each cookie with the egg wash and place a walnut halves at the center. Bake for 10 min, let them cool down and enjoy!

Eggless Tiramisu
Wishing you a sweet Sunday

This is completely egg free, right down to the homemade eggless savoiardi biscuits that we are using.

The filling is a combination of double cream and mascarpone. Alcohol or no alcohol? That's completely up to you.

Christmas Cranberry Gin
You need to start it NOW for Christmas!

Making your cranberry gin now will give you just over a month of steeping, perfect for serving during the holidays, and more importantly, it’ll make a super Christmas gift!

What does Cranberry Gin taste like?

It’s fruity, and not only a touch sweet, but also, with a definite hit of cranberry bitter. The vanilla adds just the merest hint of mellow creaminess to it, barely discernible.

Gâteau Creusois

You have to try this delicious French dessert by +FrenchTouch, it's a great way to surprise your family and friends this weekend!
Thanks for sharing :)

Gâteau Creusois
It's French Friday!

Gâteau creusois is a delicious specialty the Limousin region in south-central France. This is a very simple cake which uses ground hazelnuts, sugar, egg whites and flour. The recipe apparently dates back the 15th century and was found in a monastery from the region in 1969. This became an official regional specialty not long after this discovery.

I always loved the simplicity of this cake bit also its hazelnut flavor. It's not a very fluffy cake but it does have a soft texture. I think it make a great easy and quick treat if you're having someone over for tea or coffee, but it can also make a great dessert especially when served with custard cream (crème anglaise).

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

125 g butter
150 g sugar
80 g flour
125 g ground hazelnuts
4 egg whites

Preparation:

1- Preheat the oven at 355 F. Melt the butter at low heat in a saucepan. In the mean time, add the ground hazelnuts, sugar and flour in a mixing bowl and mix well until homogeneous.

2- Pour the melted butter in the mixing bowl and mix well. Then add the egg whites and mix again until homogeneous.

3- Pour the preparation in a buttered cake pan and bake for about 30 min. Let it cool down and enjoy!

Thanks for sharing!

Coconut Ladoo

In India, sweets are an integral part of all festivals and auspicious occasions. I simply can’t ignore their importance even though I am no longer eating sweets as I used to do earlier. I made these ladoos last year to take to work and everyone loved it.

Ingredients

3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
300 ml sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp green cardamom powder or 2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup finely ground coconut
1-2 tbsp. coarsely ground pistachio

Instructions

Place condensed milk, cardamom powder or vanilla extract and coconut milk in a pan on medium heat.
Cook stirring the mixture for 4-8 minutes until the mixture becomes thick (time depends on the amount of heat you are using and type of pan.
Cool 5 minutes. Grease your palms. Using a tablespoon measure, roll the mixture into uniform ball shapes.
Roll each ladoo in coarsely ground pistachios and place them on a tray to completely cool down and harden a bit.
Transfer to an airtight container. These can be stored at room temperature for up to 10 days.

Torta Caprese Bianca al Limone

Beautiful lemon cake by +Rita Dolce. I love all her cakes, and this one is no exception!
Thanks for sharing :)

#cake #lemon #desserts
Torta Caprese Bianca al Limone

Capri, an island off the coast of Naples, is a treasure trove of breathtaking sights and enchanting citrus scents. I am no Italy expert, but if you ever plan on visiting this Mediterranean country, Capri should rank pretty high on your list of to visit regions.

Capri is famous for its Torta Caprese, which is an almond-based cake with a moist and a crumbly texture. It dates back to the start of the 20th century, and if you read about its origins you will come across various stories. Irrespective of how it started, the cake is now widely consumed by tourists in Capri and the South of Italy be it in its chocolate (cioccolota) or lemon (limone) variations. Both versions have chocolate but the bianca or white version uses white chocolate. You can't go with either variation of this delicate almond-based cake, but the lemon flavor won my vote.

+Azlin Bloor posted a recipe for this Torta not long ago, her version yields a cake with a different texture as the amount of ingredients and method are somewhat different. Nonetheless, both recipes will deliver a scrumptious cake!

If I managed to spike your interest in this famous Italian dessert and you want to bring the bright flavors of Capri to your home, this is what you need to do.

Ingredients:
165 g almond flour (I made mine. I soaked the almonds in hot water for few minutes, then in cold water, spread them over a towel to dry then processed them)
100 g fine sugar
40 g corn flour
3 g baking powder
130 g grated white chocolate
zest of 2 organic and unwaxed lemons
30 g olive oil
35 g melted butter
4 eggs at room temperature
2 tbsp limoncello
dash of salt

Method:
In a bowl, mix the almond flour with the sugar, chocolate, salt, baking powder, lemon zest and corn flour.

In another bowl combine the eggs with the limoncello (you can substitute with the same amount of lemon juice) and beat until the batter doubles in volume and becomes pale. Fold in gently the butter and the oil then add the mixture to the flour and mix until well combined.

Pour the batter into a greased pan, covered with parchment paper, and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes in a preheated oven (175C).

Keep in mind that the baking time will vary from one oven to another, the pan size and material. You want the cake to be fully baked but not dry and with a nice brown color. Inset a toothpick in the center of the cake and if it comes out clean, your cake is done.
Once baked, leave the cake to cool almost completely before removing it from the pan, then put on a a wire rack to cool completely.

You can serve the cake as it is, but you can decorate with a dusting of powdered sugar and few fresh fruits to elevate its looks.

All you have to do now is to serve yourself a slice of this torta and enjoy the flavors of sunny Southern Italy.
