Lovely shop window.....

{Shop window, St Emilion 17 January 2011}

I simply could not resist taking a photo of this lovely window. As you can imagine the shop was full of lots of lovely items including bon bons/sweeties,


confitures/jam and many gorgeous looking gateaux/cakes. We put one of these.....



It is called a kugelhopf. Part bread, part cake, kugelhopf is made like brioche, but not as rich. It was studded with raisins and brushed with a butter and dusted with sugar.......very yummy.


a vendredi...
