Roasted Mango and Coconut Stuffed Aumônières



Hello all,
I would like to welcome in our gourmet sphere, particularly to new and new abonné.e.s.

Candlemas went there some days. See the origin and details of this party
the – beyond the religious and the distant pagan rites, this 1st Sunday in February is the opportunity to meet up with family and friends after the end of the year feasts to continue having a feast and orgy of pancakes.

Here are my 10 tips for making beautiful pancakes, while, like me, you only have a frying pan at home (non-stick all the same !!!)

I also suggest you consume differently with a recipe of my own which honors cassava flour from Cameroon, my home country.

On la trouve dans tous les magasins tropicaux en France (bon foufou du Cameroun) ou commander celle de chez Racines bio. (La culture de ce manioc biologique est assurée par des producteurs au sud du Bénin). Vous pouvez aussi vous procurer la farine du Rwanda. Ce sont les plus communes.


here are my 10 conseils qui vous permettront d’avoir de magnifiques crêpes naturellement sans gluten.

J’espère vos photos à valoriser dans notre blog à nous 😉

1/ Avoir des produits sont de qualité dont les œufs frais et /ou bio

2/ Tamiser la farine
Indeed, cette étape indispensable permet non seulement de se débarrasser des impuretés, but also to facilitate mixing with the other ingredients, to aerate the flour and the "filter". ATTENTION, THE DENSITIES OF THE FLOURS USED CAN BE DIFFERENT ADJUSTING ITS QUANTITIES ACCORDING TO.

3/ Heat the milk to avoid lumps, liquid that you will put at the end of the mixture as you go

4/ Make a milk mixture (for the velvety), and water (for lightness)
5/ Use a mixture of salted butter and neutral or scented oil.
Butter to respect the original recipe. I also find him besides a je-ne- know what greedy, and oil for incomparable softness
This tip dates from my life in Cameroon, long before I came to France where I have lived since 22 years
Indeed, we were pancake fans at home (Bonabéri, suburb of Douala in Cameroon). Good quality butter was a rather scarce and expensive commodity at that time.). We therefore fell back on vegetable margarines and especially on peanut or cotton oil produced on site.)

6/ To put, using a funnel, pancake batter in small, easy-to-use bottles, to keep also. Goodbye ladles with which we dirty everything, the work plan, the rest of the kitchen too ...

7/ Heat your pan well so as not to miss the first pancake by searing it well from the start of your cooking.

8/ I do not sugar the pancakes. So, like I always do a ton, they serve me both sweet and savory. For the sweet team, you have the choice between other jams, spreads or jellies… (Unspecified My Kitchen, my poetic and gourmet book, still on sale, pages , 92, 98, 110, 112…

9/ Flavor the dough as you wish. Flavor it as you wish, both savory and sweet

10/ Present your pancakes in an original way

(Cakes, samossas, cornets, chaplains ... there is no shortage of ideas. I offer you here some, as a permanent story on my Instagram story too and even videos).
