Guys, I’m sooo sorry for my silence! Actually, I got married on april 27th and lots of things happened. In addition, I was in France and I worked a lot. Anyway, it’s time to come back!
Then, last week I went in Washington with my husband! Crazy to say “my husband”. Do you Washington DC? I really like this town, so clean, green and nice. I want to live there! But the best is a little bakery in the north of the city. I actually don’t the name of this place but the pain au chocolat was perfect! Like the bread and everything there.
Do you know the French marbré cake? It’s an essential in France, my mother made it a lot during my childhood. I really love it and it’s very simple to make. Well, maybe some contortion when it’s time to pour the two doughs but it’s doable! I love America, it’s a great country but sometime, I miss France and this kind of cake is a pleasure!
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 4,5 oz dark chocolate
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- almond milk (if the mixture is to thick add some)
- Wish the eggs with the sugar until it becomes a little bit white.
- Melt the butter and add it to the eggs and sugar mixture. Add flour, baking powder and salt.
- Pour the half of the mixture into another bowl. In one of this add vanilla extract.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave or “au bain marie”. And pour it in the second bowl.
- Now, butter the mold. And here the fateful phase! You can add the two mixture at the time but each on one side or you can pour some of one first, then some of the other, and the other, etc.
- Place in the oven for 45 minutes at 350°F.
