Invisible Apple Cake – Now You See Them, Now You Don’t!

Why an Invisible Apple Cake you ask? The magic trick comes from the very thinly sliced apples coated with a minimal amount of batter. When the cake is sliced the apple and batter are practically invisible.

If you are looking for the latest trend in baking, this is it! The invisible apple cake, or gâteau invisible aux pommes in French, was the trend in French baking starting last fall. Japan caught on to this fashionable cake pretty fast around February of this year. And it seems that North America is finally in the know. What perfect timing with fall and apple season just starting!

Who could resist a sweet milky egg custard that is just dripping with a light caramel sauce? By adding a bit of quinoa one could say this Peruvian Quinoa Flan is healthy too (sorta)!

Well a fun food group I just discovered focuses on a country a month and guess what this month is? Peru or course, for which I prepared a Crema Volteada de Quinua, or Peruvian Quinoa Flan for ATW12P.

It has laughed a lot and loved. So much love. Love from me to you and enormous portions of love from you to me. Please help yourselves to a slice of my Lilac Blueberry Cheesecake and come celebrate my 10th blog anniversary with me!

Sitting Pretty Buttercups on Sand Tarts

Pennsylvania Dutch Sand Tarts are traditional Christmas sugar cookies know for their thin and crisp texture, and a light dusting of cinnamon. Yet they remain delicious and should be enjoyed year round!

OK let me here it! I know you are confused. “But Evelyne we are in May, Christmas is 7 months away. Why are you talking about these cookies?” Well they are my inspiration for this month’s Food ‘n Flix movie, The Princess Bride. And they would be perfect for Camper’s Christmas on June 25th. 😀 Sand and sugar were stuck in my brain after I saw the movie. How many recipe do you know that come from the concept of sand? This eventually blossomed into sand tarts, all topped with a buttercup in honor of the Princess Bride herself!
