But, to celebrate the special day, I decided to go with a more authentic recipe this time, that doesn’t care about healthiness and nutrition, just goodness!!! Also, I think my husband is getting tired of my try out at “healthy” baking…
The cake is a brioche type of dough, rolled with a sweet mixture of sugar cinnamon and nuts. It is baked and covered in icing and colored sugar, the colors you find EVERYWHERE in New Orleans at this time of the year: Purple (representing Justice), Green (representing Faith) and Gold (representing Power).
I have been thinking about what recipe to do to celebrate that special day, for a long time… But then I ran really short on time, and when I finally had a chance to sit down and decide on something, it was 9:30pm on Monday night! Thankfully, I found a very easy Panna Cotta recipe, made with 3 ingredients and requiring only 10 min of prep!! perfect!
For the French, the best part of Candlemas is obviously the crepes!!! In France we have different recipes whether you want to to enjoy them with a sweet or savory filling. Today we have done sweet crepes, and I’ll share with you my favorite recipe, it’s a rule of 3; infallible, easy to remember and delicious! We haven’t done savory crepes in a while, but you’ll find the recipe below
