Friday, it's the Epiphany !
Barely out of end of year celebrations that we already have to start eating again !
Well, to be fair, twelfth-night cake is slightly different : one can be King or Queen for the day/evening.
And THAT is cool :-)
Unless of course there's a child present during the celebration : the precious (e.g the little figurine hidden inside the traditionnal cake, called "feve" in France) will "miraculously" be found by the above-mentioned child.
Anyway, I looked around to dig up what Epiphany celebration treats Paris pastry shops were up to this year, and here is my top 3 for you, lucky people.
3 original ideas to change from the traditionnal recipe : a Pavlova, a brioche & an eclair.
#1 Gluten free pavlova
You know me : as far as cakes are concerned, I am faithful to la Meringaie.
For Epiphany they offer a special recipe + it's gluten free, for intolerant kings & queens :-)
Its little name : the Marie-Antoinette.
The recipe : Meringue, almond cream, pears, raspberry, sliced almonds.
Almost (almost!) detox
How much ?
Individual : 5,20 €
Verrine : 5,70 €
4 / 6 / 8 people : 19,50 € / 29 € / 39 €.
21 rue de Lévis
#2 Cyril Lignac for the brioche
Cyril Lignac pastry shops offer this year, aside from the traditionnal recipe, a "Kings Cake", for those who fancy a good brioche.
A tasty proposal with a brioche perfumed with orange flower, pistachios, candied fruit & orange zests.
How much ?
Individual 4 €
6-8 people 25 €
All Cyril Lignac pastry shops, 4 adresses in Paris (Paris 6è, 11è, 15è, 16è)
#3 King's eclair
This is l'Eclair de Genie's one.
This recipe is definitely the most-alike (is that even english? lol) to the original one.
With its frangipane cream (well, with Madagascar vanilla, but still hihi) & a flaky pastry 100% butter.
There's also the "tart-cake" but might be too much for the stomach.
How much ?
5,50 € the individual eclair
(If you buy 4, a feve is hidden in one of them)
Several in Paris (Paris 2è, 4è, 6è, 9è & 18è)
Donc be shy : share the post
Des bisous !
