A delicious brioche sweet bread, ideal fruity treat for the season.

To get a delicious fluffy dough, the main ingredient is time.
One day, you mix yeast, sugar, water and flour to make a sponge. The next day, you make a dough. Two days later you bake it. The net day you enjoy the delight.
300 g bread flour
1/2 cup of yeast “sponge”.
40 g sugar
80 g butter
1 egg + 1 white

Princess crepes

Princess apples in their prime.

What to do when they start getting a few wrinkles ? Botox ?

No, the miracle youth for apples is crepes.

Fry the thin slices of apple in oil. Add some batter (egg, buckwheat and dark rum). That’s not easy to flip them, I had to use a plate.

Finition : reheat them with a little kurozato (black sugar) and a little butter. That turns into caramel.
Royal !

Tatata Tatin !!! Vanilla apple tenderness

Tarte Tatin, apple upside down pie.

A strong accent of vanilla sugar. Jonagold apple.

The other side…

Hot from the oven with a little creme fraiche or sour cream.

Reheated with decadence.

It’s simply melted cocoa paste. The bitterness contrasts wonderfully the sweet apples.
