This is a traditional French cake originating from Brittany in France. Usually baked with prunes, but I also like to add a handful of raisins in the batter.
Whenever I want to pamper my family with a nice Sunday breakfast, I opt for pancakes. Because everybody likes pancakes. This time I chose an autumn version with plums and walnut, seasoned with cinnamon.
My typical day starts with a porridge. The colder the weather gets, the spicer I make it. I especially like to add fruit to it and the caramelized pear was the right choice to go with this cinnamon and ginger-spiced porridge. Happy International porridge day!

Although it is still warm outside, I can feel the Fall in the evening breeze. I’m dreaming of plums, grapes, Mirabelles already. I just love Summer, but I’m feeling more vital in the Fall. So I said my Goodbye to Summer. On the weekend, I gathered all the remaining berries from the garden and baked this luscious Summer crumble. I’ve made the crumble from the Kambly Dinkel Sable, and in about 20 minutes we had our luscious Sunday dessert.
Kataifi is a delicious dessert that is very popular in Greece. Although the taste is exactly like the baklava – stuffed with nuts and drizzled with sweet syrup- the look of the Kataifi is much more fun.
