Le Gâteau d'Hélène~A Coffee break for a little while~


This is a very special cake.. I saw it on Hélène's most beautiful blog~
Even if you do not speak French..you can enjoy all the lovely photos~
She shared this Apple/Anis cake and I had to make it after seeing hers..


I have been totally remiss making little sweets lately..
I had saved this post~
Thank you Hélène..Beau et Bon~


The recipe is there.. and the translator too:)
This cake was made one morning a few weeks ago..and I have not baked since..I am taking a coffee break for this time in Spring.
Enjoy it with all your heart this spring of ours.See you soon~
