Brave little lemons facing a hard Andalusian winter indeed ! Every morning I look at my neighbor's patio (mine is totally empty of plants or flowers at the moment) and the sight of the bright yellow lemons brings a smile to my face. They endure quite a lot these days : snow, rain and cold and they still stand proud. You know what I dream of right now ? A big bunch of mimosa flowers, the kind which smells very sweetly, to remind me of the sun....
And serve with marmelade.
Well, meanwhile I put a smile on Monchéri's face making a chocolate cake...It's a recipe I know by heart and of course the result is never quite the same. At times, it's very spongy, other time it's more like a brownie. But eh, it's the intention that counts ! You need : 100g of butter, 140g of chocolate, 4 eggs, 90g of flour, 130g of sugar.
you melt the butter with the chocolate. Pour the sugar. Add the egg yolks one by one. Add the flour.
and enjoy with a hot cup of tea !
