FFF = French Food Friday

As I promised last week I have decided to take a break from Friday flowers and today makes the first of a series of posts all of which will be based around one simple theme " French Food".

As you know from yesterday'spost we went to a fabulous restaurant on Wednesday night where I enjoyed a fabulous and very French dessert called "Fondant au chocolate".

Translated “Fondant au chocolat” means “melting chocolate”. The cake, which is melts away in your mouth with its liquid chocolate heart, was created in 1981 by the French cook Michel Bras.

Ingredients:
1 bar of dark chocolate
70g of flour
100g of butter
60g of sugar
2 eggs

Method:
1.Preheat the oven (180 °).
2. Melt the butter with 2/3 of the bar of black chocolate and add the sugar, the eggs, and the flour to it.
3.Then cut the 1/3 of remaining chocolate in big pieces and put them to the bulk. Put now the whole bulk into a buttered and floured mould and only 10 or 15 min in the oven.

You can eat it straight away whilst warm or put it a short time in the refrigerator then eat......either way it is delicious.



Bon week-end a tous, Leeann x

  2. You are so lucky to be living and dining in France! I have to settle for a French bakery called Ce Si Bon (not really a sacrifice) in Newport Beach, California. They bring out chocolate crescents every hour--amazing!

    Looking forward to reading your blog. Hope you have a wonderful day. :)
