French brioche loaf, the perfect breakfast recipe

Bigouden style brioche loaf recipe by Morgane

 

Thanks so much Morgane for sharing with us today this typical French brioche loaf recipe inherited from your aunt, Suzanne. Bigouden county is the south-west part of Brittany, in France. I already venerated Morgane for her fabulous scone recipe that ended months of missed trials where even BBC recipe failed.

When Morgane kindly shared her French brioche loaf recipe, needless to say that we rushed to test it. Easy as child’s play, Virgile helped me to make it. We added chocolate & rum to the original version but next time we’ll try it plain.

Here is Morgane Bigouden brioche recipe :

Dressed with love

Children activity : make your T-shirt

My young reader is drawing all day long. As soon he comes back from school, he set up at his desk and draw, paint, glue or stamp. Virgile is discovering literacy and write on any support that comes into his hands. Between two homemade books, I purposed to my little boy to personalize his own Tee shirts. A very simple but successful activity. Virgile is so proud to wear the beloved T-shirt on which he draws the whole family.

Winning duet

Pineapple puff pastry recipe

Like a Jedi of pastry, I follow my quest of easy pastry recipes to satiate my starving hoard. Here’s a small improvisation which many licking fingers encouraged me to share. Pineapple and chocolate is a winning duet at home – especially when they invite rum, cardamom and vanilla for a flavored dessert.

Belgian flavor

biscoff beef stew – a 100 % Belgian recipe

Tuesday evening, I had the pleasure to welcome previous home exchange partners, a lovely couple from Netherlands. Stay in contact and create friendships with people all around the world is one of home exchange greatest pleasure. To honor my guests and in my Belgian citizenship, I prepared a typical Belgian dish, a carbonnade with biscoff cookies, sort of Flemish version of English beef stew.

This dish kept childhood taste for me. Twisted with spices and biscoff ( speculoos ), a traditional Belgian cookie, this beef stew takes a sweet and sour flavor. It’s called carbonnade in Belgium – so delicious and yet so simple to prepare ! (suite…)

Vitamins for winter

avocado – grapefruit – smoked salmon verrine ready in 5 min

 

It’s so simple that I’m not even sure it’s appropriate to put it in recipe category. But I tellmyself that my older boy might perhaps be happy to dig some quick & easy recipes. And after all, a full of vitamins starter ready in 5 min is always good to take isn’t it ?
