I had 3 bananas dying in my fruit bowl the other day and instead of putting them in the bin, I decided to put them to good use. I have a recipe on my blog for a banana and chocolate cake (here!) but I just wanted to change it a bit and decided to make… Continue reading Banana and chocolate cupcakes
Just because I love cakes and coffees (or actually, it should be tea but on that day I was more inspired by coffee)! Juste parce que j’adore les gâteaux et le café (en fait, cela devrait plutôt être un thé mais j’imagine que j’étais plus inspirée par le café ce jour-là)!
Yesterday, I turned 30! Am I feeling old? Nah! 😉 I had an awesome day and celebrated with my family. I also spent some time in the kitchen and decided to…invent a dessert (or kind of!).

C’est vraiment une des… Continue reading Lovely autumn
I got some plums a while ago to make a plum tart, as is the tradition in Switzerland for “Fast Monday (not sure how to translate it!? Sorry!), which is usually the third Monday of September 😉 J’ai acheté quelques pruneaux pour fair une belle tarte – une jolie tradition suisse pour le Jeûne Fédéral,… Continue reading It’s plum time!
It’s time for challenge number 3! Yes, it was bread week on the Great British Bake Off and as usual, I decided to try the technical challenge. This week, the contestants had to make a cottage loaf – a classic british bread. I have to say, I am definitely not the best when it comes… Continue reading Cottage loaf (Great British Bake Off)
So it has started…The Great British Bake Off is back!!! And I’m so excited about it! 😀 It is one of my favourite shows as you probably know.

It is definitely a good way of improving my baking skills…and I love… Continue reading Chocolate mini rolls (Great British Bake Off)
