...to see out the last days of summer
tarte au citron, from my french table
victoria sponge cake
hint: turn the bottom layer of sponge upside down before spreading with jam, and maybe then it won't all run off the edges!
I use a basic recipe for this cake which involves weighing the eggs, then weighing out the flour, sugar and butter to the same weight. It produces a fantastically light, fluffy cake. I also use bonne maman jam, strawberries and whipped double cream. Its a fairly simple combination of flavours, but is just amazing.
and here's the view from my kitchen window, ahh, I'll miss those sunny days!
I have some very exciting news for my next post, involving bonne maman and flower fairies, Trafalgar Day and a white empire-waisted dress, and a baby elephant.
